Oil Coolers

Oil Coolers

An oil cooler is a type of radiator that uses oil as a coolant. As the oil cools the object in question, it absorbs the heat. It then gets passed through a cooler, and back to the hot object. This is a continuous cycle, offering a steady cooling rate to your item.

It is generally used on high performance engines which are not, or cannot be, cooled with water. Often, an oil circulation system used for lubrication is adapted to allow this cooling system to take place. It requires a larger oil capacity and a greater flow rate through the oil pump, along with an oil-air oil cooler.

One of the most common uses for an oil cooler is a high performance motorcycle engine. However, we offer these cooling systems for all sorts of services. Here are some examples for you:

  • Plant
  • Farming Motor sport Cars
  • Many other vehicles.

We have also designed a new system using finless cores, which uses heavy duty tubing without the fins. This offers maximised air and cooling ability.

Advantages of oil cooling:

– Oil has a higher boiling point than water. This means that it can be used to cool items at a much higher temperature than water can, with the ability to cool items over 100°C.

– Oil is already used as a lubricant. This means that the oil usage can be increased and adapted to work as part of the cooling system.

– Oil is an electrical insulator. One of the problems with using water as a cooling agent, is that it can become dangerous if it comes in contact with the electrical components. When using oil, you will not come across this problem.

Disadvantages of oil cooling:

– Many types of oil are flammable, so you will need to use extra care when using this cooling system. Water, however, is not flammable.

– This method may be limited to cooling items that are under 200°C – 300°C. This will depend on the type of cooling oil you use, so it is wise to double check before you set it up.

– You can find water almost anywhere, meaning that if you run out of coolant you will more than likely be able to top it up easily and at little cost. With oil however, this is not the case.

– It may become difficult to remove parts after oil has been poured in.
