Medium- and high-speed reciprocating internal combustion engines are most commonly equipped with a brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE) oil coolers, though older technologies such as Shell & Tube are still used in some markets. Open circuit plate-type heat exchangers mounted internally in the engine block are also relatively common in high-speed engines with smaller capacities. The benefits of using an external oil cooler are the simplified service procedure and the effortless modularity of the oil cooling capacity.
We have a range of BPHEs developed specifically for oil cooler applications in engines of up to 15 MW output. They deal with the challenges of restricted external dimensions and fluid pressure drop, as well as high coolant flows.
The B10T delivers efficient heat exchange solutions across a wide capacity interval, and is quick and simple to adapt for a number of applications. The product’s compact size, versatility, and excellent heat transfer make it a perfect choice for both single-phase and refrigerant applications.
The B35T is ideal for many applications in district heating, heat recovery for industry, HVAC, combined heat & power and engine oil cooling. It is the perfect choice for efficient heat transfer with a low pressure drop in systems with up to 2½″ piping and 58 m³/h (255 gpm) water flow.
The modular B50 is used in many demanding applications, such as district heating, steam, oil coolers and different industrial applications. With three different plate combinations and 2½″ connections, it provides an efficient solution for performances of up to 56 m³/h (246 gpm) water flow.
The efficient B427 has four different plate types, making it easy to adapt for a wide variety of heating and industrial applications. With 4″ connections it handles up to 156 m³/h (686 gpm) water flow.
