3 – Highest quality standards
In order to demonstrate their commitment towards maintaining the highest standards of quality and customer satisfaction, TitanX’s applies rigorous operational excellence rules in all the development & production sites.
The company also constantly carries out specific tests to guarantee the quality of its products. TitanX can boast the presence of 2 test centers, located in Europe and the US, where teams of experts carry out strict tests on a daily basis to verify the performance of the products: Climatic Vehicle wind tunnel testing, Vibration testing, and a range of heat exchanger specific services like performance, thermal resistance and pressure resistance.
Let’s see in more detail what these tests consist of.
Heat Transfer Testing
The Heat Transfer Test consists in the measurement of heat rejection and internal and external fluid pressure drop.
This credible data make it possible to work for the maximization of the individual heat exchanger & cooling module system performance.
The vibration test allows TitanX engineering team to simulate years of usage in the short time of a few hours.
The test is conducted on different types of vibration tables where in pressurization & thermal cycle load can be added to vibration testing for better simulation of field conditions.
Thanks to highly efficient durability tests, TitanX’s Engineers are able to expedite the simulation of years of usage & environmental exposure on cooling systems.
The tests performed include:
- Thermal Cycle Benches
- Pressure Pulsation Benches
- Distortion Benches
- Vibration Benches
- Corrosion Benches
- Endurance Test
Climatic Wind Tunnel
A climatic wind tunnel facility is used for the development of engine cooling & climate control systems for heavy truck manufacturers.
TitanX engineers use this high-quality facility under controlled conditions to optimize product performance under a wide range of operating conditions.
These climate-controlled wind tunnels can also be used for the climatic testing of other vehicular systems such as fuel, brakes and other non-vehicle applications.

Engine cooling systems
TitanX is known worldwide for its experience in engine cooling solutions. TitanX’s engine cooling systems are characterized by high performance, cost efficiency, durability and quality.
TitanX’s coolant to air radiators are the base component of every cooling system. They are characterized by some unique features:
- Narrow headers to enhance pressure resistance
- Optimized side plates and mounting methods for enhanced vibration durability
- Welded aluminum tubes in single and multi-chamber configurations.
TitanX offers a comprehensive range of Aluminum radiators from 19mm to 52mm to fulfill the needs of a demanding industry. These heat exchangers cover the needs of both Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) and Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV)
Charge Air Coolers
TitanX’s Air to Air or Charge Air Coolers have been a key component of the engine cooling system for nearly all Heavy trucks since the early 1990’s. TitanX’s Heavy Duty products are recognized in the industry for their durability, heat rejection & pressure drop balance.
The Charge Air Coolers are characterized by:
- Low-profile welded oval tubes for optimized durability and performance
- Low-amplitude rolled offset or louvered turbulators (inside tubes) allows to fine tune the applications for maximum performance
- High-amplitude, louvered, or non-louvered fins (between tubes) resulting in a minimal external restriction and optimal system performance.
TitanX’s air to refrigerant consist of a wide range of parallel flow, extruded tube, air conditioning condensers with core depths from 16mm to 22m specifically designed to meet the challenges and unique operating conditions of the Heavy Truck industry. These heat exchangers cover the needs of both Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) and Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV)
TitanX also provides additional key AC system components including plumbing & receiver/dryers.
TitanX’s stainless steel coolant to oil heat exchangers are a result of decades of research & development in tandem with market leaders in commercial vehicle manufacturers like Volvo, Scania & Daimler. Characterized by superior quality and high performance, TitanX’s oil coolers come in an optimal geometric size which allows to facilitate highly durable and cost-efficient system solutions.
At TitanX they constantly work to tackle emission and efficiency challenges resulting in lesser fuel consumption.
Engine Oil Coolers
The technology used for the production of Engine Oil Coolers is based on stainless steel plate coolers. A Single Flow Integrated oil cooler is embedded into the engine block to get an optimal vehicle cooling system solution. An alternative to this is having an oil filter module where the oil cooler is mounted into the filter module. The Twin Flow Integrated cooler has the capability of serving as an engine oil cooler. These Stainless steel oil coolers guarantee an excellent durability level and reliability for the heavy truck market.
Retarder Oil Coolers
Retarder applications are some of the most demanding applications for an oil cooler. TitanX’s Twin Flow Integrated Oil Cooler is crafted using stainless steel plates with integrated cooling & oil circuits allowing no by-pass losses in the heat exchange process. For these reasons they they are particularly suitable for applications in extreme climatic situations.
Transmission Oil Coolers
Stainless Steel Transmission Oil Coolers are built as Single or Twin Flow Integrated stainless steel plate coolers. The coolers are integrated into the engine block via standard or custom-made interface connections. The product configuration facilitates the integration of both the cooling as well as the oil circuit resulting in no by-pass losses in the heat exchange process.
TitanX boasts a long and successful history in the application of high-volume truck cooling technology to the stationary power generation market.
The company uses standard validated heat exchanger components in tandem with customized mounting systems to facilitate numerous highway advantages to the stationary power generation market.
