Rail & Transportation

Heat exchange solutions to keep you on track

At Sterling Thermal Technology, we design and manufacture customised heat exchangers to meet the specific needs of the rail and transport sector. By providing purpose made solutions, we are able to increase reliability, save money, minimise downtime and reduce maintenance. Our products also help to reduce fuel consumption and make rail and transport networks more reliable, rugged and cost-effective.


Customised heat exchangers for rail and transport sectors. Less fuel used, lower maintenance required.

For many decades, Sterling Thermal Technology has supplied world leading heat exchangers that help our rail and transport customers to cut fuel consumption and reduce maintenance requirements. Our bespoke solutions also minimise risk and lower overall running costs.

Designing alongside engine manufacturers
Thanks to our collaboration with engine manufacturers, we have produced many highly efficient bespoke designs for air charge coolers. Drawing on this experience, our knowledge of special materials and using our new finned tube, we continue to optimise our coolers. We strive to ensure they represent the best performing systems on the market along with exceptional value for money. Our designs can even be used in engines that burn special gas fuels such as biogas.

Innovations that improve reliability
Sterling Thermal Technology’s heat exchangers are widely used for traction cooling in diesel and electric systems. Our Elfin block radiators offer significant flexibility in terms of design and materials along with greatly improved thermal performance. Our latest designs further minimise downtime by reducing the chance of overheating and air side fouling.

Bringing innovations to existing equipment
As well as providing new bespoke heat transfer solutions, we can refurbish, upgrade, or uprate existing equipment. In that case, we would use new materials to significantly improve fuel consumption and extend service life. When possible, by utilising components from the original unit, we can return old equipment to an ‘as new’ condition, fully tested and certified for compliance.

Meeting the highest standards
Our heat exchangers operate according to high levels of compliance and operational safety, which the transport industry expects and demands. We design and manufacture these in accordance with recognised industry standards including ASME, PD5500 and PED.
