Dura-Lite™ has manufacturing facilities in North America, Australia, and Asia. The origin of a specific part can vary from time to time, dependent on demand and plant capacity. All production, regardless of the plant location, is built to Dura-Lite's specifications with Dura-Lite™ production staff.

Yes. Dura-Lite’s on-site state-of-the-art Test Facility is used to ensure products meet or exceed Original Equipment performance specifications and assure product durability.

Dura-Lite™ Evolution® Charge Air Coolers meet or exceed the Original Equipment performance specifications.

Dura-Lite™ currently manufactures over 600 different Charge Air Coolers for turbo-diesel powered equipment including (but not limited to) the following applications; Agricultural, Bus, Cement Mixers, Classes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 Trucks, Coach, Construction, Fire Trucks, Generators and Power Units, Government, Marine, Military, Motorhome, Off-Highway Vehicles, Oil Field, On-Highway Vehicles, Recreational, Refuse, Stationary, Transit, Vocational, and many others. Dura-Lite’s professionally certified engineers can also custom design a Charge Air Cooler, Radiator, and/ or Radiator/ Charge Air Cooler Cooling Module for any application.

No. Repairing a leaking Original Equipment style Charge Air Cooler is nothing more than a band-aid and it will end up costing you more in down time when it leaks again. If the original design wouldn’t last, how can a patch repair be expected to? The cost of a new Charge Air Cooler will ultimately be far less than the loss of fuel economy you will experience as the cooler leaks more each day. You also risk a potential turbo charger replacement as the turbo continues to work harder to compensate for a leaking Charge Air Cooler. In addition there is the potential for engine wear, and other issues associated with a leaking Charge Air Cooler.

No. Although there have been attempts to copy Dura-Lite’s design, Dura-Lite™ is the original inventor. Dura-Lite’s proven technology allows it to offer an industry leading (non-prorated) 7 Year/ 1,000,000 Mile Warranty on most Part #'s. Dura-Lite’s design and manufacturing process are protected under numerous patents. Companies offering imitation products are infringing on Dura-Lite’s patents and could be subject to legal action.

Dura-Lite™ refers to the seal between the tube-to-header joint as a grommet. The grommet allows the tubes to expand and contract in the grommet/ header, which eliminates the typical tube-to-header failure mode and resulting leakage.

No. The seal actually isn’t rubber, Dura-Lite™ uses a specially formulated high heat Patented Silicone Grommet Tube-To-Header Seal System. The silicone grommet allows the tubes to expand and contract in the grommet/ header, which eliminates the typical tube-to-header failure mode and resulting leakage. All Dura-Lite™ Charge Air Coolers are manufactured 100% leak free.

Yes, but only at Dura-Lite’s manufacturing facility. However, there should be no need to replace the grommets, as they are designed to last for the life of the Charge Air Cooler.

Dura-Lite Heat Transfer Products Ltd.™ is a Professional Engineering Company, certified by APEGGA (Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists, and Geophysicists of Alberta).

If you are the original owner of the Charge Air Cooler, please contact Dura-Lite™ Customer Support at 800-661-1117 with the Dura-Lite™ Part (Model) # and Serial # to have it checked.

Open the hood or engine compartment of the vehicle and look for the Dura-Lite™ Part (Model) # and Serial # Label on the Charge Air Cooler. The Label is typically located on the top center of the Charge Air Cooler.

No. A Charge Air Cooler should not be cleaned or re-used following a turbo failure. The Charge Air Cooler is often damaged by the event, and may cause further problems if re-used.

No. A Dura-Lite™ Charge Air Cooler cannot be cleaned or re-used once it has been contaminated with oil.

Dura-Lite™ recommends that a Charge Air Cooler should be tested every time the vehicle is in for service and/ or when the oil is changed. It is vital to the performance and reliability of the engine that leaks are detected as soon as possible in order to reduce problems caused by a leaking Charge Air Cooler.

Dura-Lite™ estimates 40% of trucks 2 (two) years or older, have Charge Air Coolers that are leaking out of the engine manufacturers specifications.

Dura-Lite™ manufactures a Test Kit that includes all of the tools and instructions necessary to test most models, makes, and/ or sizes of Charge Air Coolers safely and accurately. Please reference Dura-Lite’s Tester-Kit™ information page under the Products section of the Website or printed Catalog for additional information on the basic procedure.

A leaking Charge Air Cooler results in incomplete combustion which causes; loss of engine power, increased fuel consumption, elevated soot levels in the oil, premature piston, ring, and valve failure, turbocharger failures, elevated coolant temperatures, and exhaust manifold failure.

Yes. The rule of thumb is to pressure the Charge Air Cooler up to 30 psig and that it should hold air for at least 15 seconds. If there is a pressure loss of 5 psig or more within the 15 seconds, the Charge Air Cooler is leaking out of specification (Leak Down Rate Specification) and it should be replaced immediately. This is only a guideline and it is very important to check the engine manufacturers Leak Down Rate Specification (some common specifications are noted below). Please also reference Dura-Lite’s Tester-Kit™ information page under the Products section of the Website for additional information on the basic procedure.

Leak Down Rate Specifications:

Caterpillar 5 psig in 15 seconds @ 30 psig
Cummins (ISB, ISC, N14) 7 psig in 15 seconds @ 30 psig
Cummins (ISX, M11)  5 psig in 15 seconds @ 30 psig
Detroit Diesel 5 psig in 30 seconds @ 30 psig
International 5 psig in 15 seconds @ 30 psig
Mack 5 psig in 15 seconds @ 30 psig
