www.are.com.au was designed not only act as a virtual catalogue for our products, but also as a forum that allows us to promote better understanding, maintenance and knowledge of cooling systems.

The tech talk section of the website is perhaps the most interesting.  It contains articles containing the most basic information, right through to information of specific products and our R&D exercises.

The  most important article is 'Intercoolers - a must read' which explains everything we think is important about intercoolers, and what you should factor in when purchasing one.
