The off line cooling system is an energy efficient way to cool your machinery, saving you up to 90% in electrical costs. It also improves machining performance and accuracy.
These units can be installed indoors or outdoors and require minimal maintenance, although periodic inspection and cleaning of the intermediate heat exchanger may be necessary. The cooling fluid can be glycol or water, and the unit is designed to be quiet.
Offline forced-air oil coolers are ideal for hydraulic systems that experience frequent variations in pressure and flow rates, such as CNC machines, injection molding machines, and hydraulic presses. They cool and filter the oil by passing it through a heat exchanger, which reduces wear on seals, surfaces, and components caused by excess heat.
These oil coolers can be used for a variety of applications, such as gear boxes, hydraulic presses, and lube oil cooling systems. They feature an integrated motor and oil pump that draws the lube oil directly from the hydraulic reservoir, cooling it, and returning it to the reservoir afterward. They can be used for new or existing systems and are available in a variety of sizes.
Idle systems that are not recirculating can be subject to biofilm and pitting damage. These problems can be avoided by installing an off-line fluid cooler, which is a sealed unit that bypasses the hydraulic system to draw the oil directly from the tank. It also prevents the cooler from experiencing excessive pressure pulses, which can shorten the cooling system’s life. Off-line oil coolers are also a good solution for systems that cannot be shut down completely, such as those that require continuous operation. These units allow the user to operate the machine while it is still cooling, and they can be turned off once they are no longer needed.
