It’s not uncommon for a hydraulic system to generate heat. This can lead to issues such as overheating – creating a safety hazard for personnel and the machine.
When a hydraulic machine overheats it can accelerate oxidation which will breakdown the oil’s chemical structure – leaving you with an unusable sludge.
Heat exchangers remove excess heat – whether they’re generated by energy loss or external sources such as engines or the environment. Heat exchangers are available as both heaters and coolers. Coolers are then available in four distinct types: tubular, plate, air-cooling radiators and refrigerants.
Heaters are used to transfer thermal energy from one liquid to another whilst maintaining a stable temperature. Whereas coolers are used to dissipate heat when the hydraulic fluid enters the unit.
