The 2018 Dodge Demon’s Power Chiller is a key component of the 840 hp Dodge Challenger SRT Demon engine. This member has been elected as one of the best news for 2017 by the magazine “Popular Science.” The Power Chiller uses the car’s air conditioning coolant to further cool the engine air from entering the 6.2 liters Hemi Demon V8 engine cylinders. Cooling air, containing more oxygen molecules, helps the engine to deliver a maximum power of 840 horsepower.
2018 Dodge Demon: Test
The Power Chiller is a new addition to the SRT division. The engine development team hopes to develop for the entire Dodge fleet of vehicles and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. These SRT technologies can also be used for different purposes, such as improving vehicle efficiency. The Hemi Demon V8 6.2 liter Hemi Demon V8 engine uses a dedicated liquid circuit separate from the engine cooling circuit to cool the air. When activated, the Power Chiller deflects the air conditioning coolant from the cab to the cooling unit.

The compressor’s charge air coolant passes through a low-temperature radiator at the front of the Demon Dodge Challenger SRT, then flows through the SRT Power Chiller, where it is further cooled by the coolant. The liquid then flows through a unit that exchanges heat in the compressor housing, cooling the compressed air when it enters the suction ports. Colder air is denser and has more oxygen molecules per volume than hot air. With more oxygen entering the engine, you can produce more power.
