CuproBraze Technology Succeeds in Energy-Efficient Locomotives

NEW YORK, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

     International Seminar Announced for Advanced Heat Exchanger Technology

    The International Copper Association announces that CuproBraze technology is uniquely

suited for cooling systems in locomotives. The technology has already proven successful in

diesel-engine and all-electric locomotive applications, both of which require large on-board

cooling systems. Heat exchangers built with this process provide excellent cooling efficiency

and durability.

    Locomotives historically have relied on heat exchangers made with copper plates and round

brass tubes. Such plate-fin systems are extremely rugged and easy-to-clean yet serpentine fins,

also known as corrugated fins, are even more efficient than plate fins for heat removal.

CuproBraze radiators with rectangular corrugated fins deliver the level of reliability, cleanability

and long service life that is essential in locomotive applications.

    More information on the use of CuproBraze technology in railroads applications is available

    For more information about CuproBraze, contact the International Copper Association, +1

    Special Technology Seminar in Dubai

    In recognition of the growing importance of rail transportation, the International Copper

Association will host a Special Technology Seminar on October 8, 2009 in Dubai, UAE. The

one-day seminar "Advanced Heat Exchangers for Locomotives and Heavy Equipment" is free-

of-charge to engineers and managers, especially from the Middle East, Africa, Europe and

India, who are interested in heat exchangers. The program includes distinguished speakers

from the manufacturer/supplier side as well as the OEM/design side with special emphasis on

applications to locomotives and off-road equipment. For event details and to register, please go
