It is necessary to maintain the correct charge air temperature for the following reasons:

  1. So that the correct mass of air is allowed into the cylinder for combustion of the fuel, (the higher the temperature the greater
the specific volume)
  2. To keep the exhaust gas temperature at acceptable levels, (will rise if air temp is too high)
  3. To prevent water depositing on the liner surface destroying L.O. film if the temperature is too low.
  4. To prevent thermal shocking of liner if the temperature is too low.
