    Does some of you have experience in attaching two engines to one single keel/box cooler? It is not required to have them running simultaneously. Perhaps somebody has a diagram?
    Thanks in advance for any reply.

    with valves to isolate one from the other and they are at the same level / height as in radiator caps and are similar size engine so the on engine pumps are similar.

    Box cooler partition

    Some box coolers can be specified with 2 or 3 partitions, i.e a section for each user (engine, air conditioner, genset gear box etc), where each section is sized after the load, and each section hads its own inlet and outlet.

    Try Weka and Klima.
