OIL COOLER Various sizes 60-300 Lt / min 12v , 24v fan
12 volt or 24 volt Oil coolers
Oil Cooler with Axial Fan - 60 to 300 LPM
Oil coolers or heat exchangers are used to reduce excessive heat in hydraulic systems. The reliability, efficiency and lifespan of key components such as bearings and seals can be greatly improved by the use of oil cooling to remove excess heat and maintain an optimal working temperature. There is a recommended option for a Temperature sensor switch which simply turns on the fan when detected oil heat reaches a certain level. ie. Will not run as often in winter. Please refer to charts for correct sizing. Remember oil coolers are designed to go on the return to tank oil circuit, ensure there are large enough hoses to not cause 'back pressure' Max pressure is 16 Bar / 240 Psi. These coolers simply use BSPP ports.
How to Calculate the Size of an Oil / Air Cooler.
You will need a thermometer (infrared is best) to measure oil temperature and a time piece to measure the time. Pick a location on the machine where heat is experience and you know oil is flowing through it and measure at the same location every 15 minutes, record the temperature and the time.
Summarise all recordings
The rise or final temperature
And the time it took (in hours) for the temperature to rise to the final recording.
