An air duct is a Ventilation ductIn the automotive context, this is used in the context of tuning and built into the vehicle at various points in the front area. The air inlets (air ducts) enable the engine to be continuously supplied with fresh air and the oxygen it contains, which is essential for good combustion. And air ducts often achieve a very attractive visual effect, as well as some of them a performance-enhancing effect. In German usage the terms Air scoops and air inlets also established for air ducts.
How it works - Air Duct
Air ducts can therefore be placed in the league of Intake systems categorize, by using these built-in parts, a significant increase in engine performance can be achieved. An Air Duct can be combined with a Airpipe are connected, this in turn guides the sucked in or inflowed air straight into the engine and into the combustion chamber there. The air lines installed as standard also lead to the engine, but usually have a significantly smaller diameter than the retrofittable and upgradeable airpipes.
suitable for improved cooling
A pure use of the Air Duct without forwarding raw system ensures the steadily improved inflow of the airstream, which ensures continuous cooling of the engine. In addition, there is a permanent fresh air supply, which, however not directly is passed into the engine, but this is available for cooling in the surrounding engine compartment. The air scoops are for example too embedded directly in the bonnet and not only installed in the front apron. This also allows an immediate air supply to take place even at low speeds.
The use of an air duct must be included in the vehicle registration document as a structural change be registered and approved by a testing organization. This is due to the necessity of having to remove the hood for installation, among other things, in order to insert the scoop. Experience has shown that the acceptance of a proper installation is not a problem, however, a guarantee of the admissibility cannot be given.
The air inlets can be designed to match the model as well as universally. When using the air ducts designed to match the model, the manufacturer focuses on function and design so that they can be integrated well into the existing structures of the vehicle and at the same time provide a high level of benefit. Universally designed air ducts, however, are cannot designed for the individual models and can sometimes not match or fit into the vehicle design. However, the functionality should not be impaired as a result. And in principle, depending on the installation position, you can also use the Bremsanlage cool.
The Air Duct are often made of the light and resistant carbon; For further processing and refinement, the carbon is coated with a protective layer of clear varnish. The finishing can generate a high level of resistance to scratches and other environmental influences. But also simple plastic up to GRP can be used as material.
We hope that you have received our information report on the topic / term Air ducts (Further designations / keywords are: Air ducts, ventilation ducts, ventilation ducts, brake air ducts, air supply lines, air supply lines, air intake duct, air duct, scoops, vents, ducts) from the Autotuning category. Our goal is to have the largest German-speaking tuning lexicon (Tuning Wikipedia) and to explain tuning technical terms from A to Z easily and understandably. We are therefore expanding this lexicon almost daily and you can see how far we have already come HERE see. And soon the next one will be Tuning scene concept illuminated by us. There's a theme that cannot can be found in our Wikipedia? Then send us an email at email@example.com and gives us the term. We will write a suitable article as soon as possible. PS. By the way, you will be informed about new topics if you have ours Feed subscriber.
