Since 1992, Dura-Lite Heat Transfer Products Ltd. has kept the trucking industry on the highway with our revolutionary charge air coolers.
A Legacy of Success
It all began in the late 80s, in our humble repair shop in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, that saw an accumulation of leaking charge air coolers coming in almost daily. With the realization that a lasting repair would not be possible, because of thermal expansion and contraction, we knew that a new design was needed. After extensive research, development, and testing, Dura-Lite™ unveiled its revolutionary new charge air cooler, the New Generation™, to the world.
This new charge air cooler, quickly recognized as the Ultimate Solution™, eventually became known as Evolution®. It incorporated Silicone Grommets at the tube-to-header joint of the cooler and utilized oval tubing that had superior inner air deflection, which met or, in some cases, exceeded the original equipment specifications, while still having unmatched durability. This design, along with a streamlined in-house manufacturing process, an industry-leading warranty program, and a customer-first ethos is how Dura-Lite would make our mark as the new-standard in the trucking industry.
Dura-Lite is known for the world’s best charge air coolers (CAC), premium radiators and charge air cooler testing equipment for all turbo-diesel powered equipment used in heavy-duty truck, transit bus, motorcoach, motorhome, industrial, agricultural, and construction markets.
Our promise, from day one, has always been to supply industry-leading products and services. From your first call with the sales team to troubleshooting down the road, we stand behind our products so you can keep your promises too.

What Our Customers Are Saying
I have used Dura-Lite on past trucks. I just installed an Evolution US-CUSDAC-281F CAC on my 379 Peterbilt with a high HP Caterpillar engine. The exhaust gas temperature was lowered compared to the stock CAC. Great fitment, easy install, and very well built product!
Dura-Lite’s unique design holds up against the punishment of the road so well that it’s warrantied for a million miles. That’s a no-brainer. Be sure to test often and always ask for a genuine Dura-Lite Charge Air Cooler.
Product appears to be of much better quality than the OEM cooler I removed.
The OEM coolers just do not last, and when ordering new trucks the option should be available to specify Dura-Lite.
Love the idea of warranty with that many miles, and this charge air cooler is not that much in price compared to other coolers.
Your product is the very best and I’m happy to order a new one, my Dura-Lite was installed 12 years ago and has run well for over 2,000,000 miles!
Thank you Dura-Lite for making quality products that last.
I have been using Dura-Lite coolers for probably about 20 years. I have always been satisfied with the Dura-Lite product and I can’t ever remember having to make a warranty claim..
I have used Dura-Lite charge air coolers in much of our fleet
I like your products; you need to push out more radiators for the same vehicles.
