PWR Performance Products are specialist manufacturers of complete aluminium radiators for all applications. PWR tradesmen produce all assemblies by hand from high grade aluminium ensuring the highest levels of quality, durability, strength and performance meeting the highest level of customer expectation. PWR stock a huge range of direct fit replacement radiator models but also have the capability to custom design and manufacture specific models not kept in stock.
PWR provides world class cooling solutions by manufacturing high performance aluminum radiators, intercoolers and oil coolers for race cooling solutions to leading race categories and teams such as F1, MotoGP, NASCAR, WRC, V8 Supercars, PWR is recognized as a world leader when it comes to high performance cooling. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Australia includes a controlled atmosphere brazing furnace, CNC machine shop, R&D and design department, large fabrication capabilities an in-house wind tunnel which allows PWR to be the market leader in cooling research and development with focus on competition cooling solutions. When entering into a relationship with its customers PWR does not just sell them a product but partners with them to develop cooling solutions where the customer can use PWR’s engineering department and manufacturing facilities to purpose build the right solution. The flexible manufacturing approach, which sets PWR apart from its competitors, is due to every aspect of the manufacturing process being completed in its own purpose-built facility. PWR can guarantee a top-quality product whilst offering its customers around the world quick turnaround times and the unique opportunity to customize their products to suit their specific cooling requirements.
Passion is at the heart of PWR. Founders Kees and Paul Weel are well known for their passion to build the best cooling solutions in the world and then deliver them when required by our customer. This is reflected in the staff at PWR – from the senior engineering and design staff, to our technical sales staff, to factory staff who make the products, to our welders who always give just that extra bit of attention that makes sure the product looks as good as it works, and to our dispatch team who make sure that our products are well protected and dispatched on time. The passion extends to an avid following of all things automotive.
The quality of PWR cooling solutions is well known. We have experienced people on the factory floor who know what to do and how to make sure that products leaving PWR are top quality. To attract the right people, PWR offer enviable working conditions in a state-of-the-art factory with all the modern equipment required to produce world leading heat exchangers. PWR offers all its staff meals in our onsite canteen to ensure that everyone is 100% focused on getting the quality right. This is backed up by an ISO9001:2008 quality certification to make sure that we live up to our craftsmanship reputation.
Some companies sell products, PWR sells solutions. This can range from top end racing cooling like Formula 1 and NASCAR down to having a better radiator in your 4X4 for when the going gets tough. The combination of expert cooling knowledge of our engineers and sales team, an unrivaled range of aluminum coil, tubes, sheet and fin options, an experienced drawing team of cooling designs, a manufacturing environment where we can seamlessly swap between different job set-ups and configurations, and staff who are dedicated to getting the product right all combine to let PWR tailor solutions to your requirements and not just sell you something from the catalogue.
PWR has world leading know-how and design capability backed up by one of the best testing facilities in the world. When you add all this up, you get innovative cooling solutions that work. It is not by chance that PWR works with leading race teams around the world. They want access to the innovation that PWR can deliver, whether it is in the thermal dynamics of a specific heat exchanger, or it is in the way that PWR can bespoke manufacture at its own factory using the unrivaled range of aluminum coil, sheet and tube.
At the heart of PWR is our factory. The Seco Warwick atmospheric controlled braze furnace lets us manufacture the core of our heat exchangers to our specifications – we are not dependent on someone else making the core. Once a design is finished, tubes are cut to size, aluminum coil is run through one of our fin machines to create the fin, sidebands and tanks are punched out on our Turret Presses. Once the core is stacked and header plates put on, it goes through the furnace. Of course, every core is tested after this for leaks before it is either shipped out as a core or tanks are welded on to build a complete assembly.
Research & Development
PWR spends around 6% of its revenue each year on R&D to keep at the leading edge in cooling solutions. By engineering different tube styles with multiple fin styles and densities (potentially within the same core) PWR’s engineers are able to tune the performance characteristics of its heat exchangers. This allows us to maximise the aerodynamic characteristics to the customer’s requirements, reduce dry and wet weight, as well as providing the necessary thermal efficiency. By having a world leading Wind Tunnel test facility, PWR can prove the results in a controlled environment that replicates real world results.
The PWR Wind Tunnel test facility places PWR at the leading edge of cooling solutions design. Leading race teams from around the world use it to validate expected results. PWR uses it to test what we manufacture in the factory to take the guesswork out of the results being achieved. Best of all, as the Wind Tunnel test facility is inside our factory, we can easily build multiple cores to keep testing until we achieve the right solution.
PWR Performance Products specialize in and manufacture complete radiators and cores for race, street, drag or OEM replacement applications within the automotive industry. Our constant on track testing environment in fields like NASCAR, Formula 1, GRAND-AM, V8 Supercars, Sprint Cars, Drag Racing, Rally, Go-Karts and Motocross ensures that every customer receives the latest in R&D Development and race proven performance technology.
