Has it got an intercooler ? If so then that will cool it down .E room temp in the summer on mine must be over 50 oC or arround ,
Here's inlet temp 17 oC by the time the charge air cooler aka intercooler has done its stuff
Hope some of you gurus can advise as to what the maximum engine air inlet temperature is for a diesel engine. We are running currently with a engine room temp of 50 deg c. :disgust:
Varies slightly from one engine manufacturer to another, however you have not stated your engine make and model and data is contained in specific engine application data.
Having said all that a good rule of thumb is a maximum engine room Delta T of (17 Degrees C / 30 Degrees F) i.e. engine intake temperature Vs ambient air temperature.
This measurement MUST be taken at RATED engine speed and power.
I also work off an absolute maximum rated intake manifold temperature 48.9 Degrees C / 120 Degrees F.
