Heat Exchangers for Oil Cooling by Ace Automation Engineers


Ace Automation Engineers, the hydraulic and pneumatic equipment pioneers since 1992, present to you a range of heat exchangers / oil coolers. Designed and manufactured at our Mayapuri plant, these heat exchangers / oil coolers come in two types – Air Cooled and Water Cooled – with different oil flow handling and cooling capacities, and therefore find application in a wide variety of industrial processes.

Air Cooled Heat Exchangers / Oil Coolers


These are D Cup Coolers (also known as Bar and Fin Cooler), or Plate and Fin type coolers, typically because cooling fins are attached to the heat sink, thereby increasing its surface area to greater cooling effectiveness.
        1. Oil flow handling up to 1000 LPM
        2. Cooling capacity up to 57000 Kcal/h

Water Cooled Heat Exchangers / Oil Coolers


These are shell and tube type oil coolers, since they use water as the heat conductor and the main mechanism for water cooling is convective heat transfer.
        1.Oil flow handling up to 1000 LPM
        2.Cooling capacity up to 350000 Kcal/hr

Air Cooling VS Water Cooling


Air cooled heat exchangers / oil coolers are lower in cost and maintenance, and can come in very small sizes depending upon the requirement, and still be effective. Water, on the other hand, has a higher specific heat capacity, density and thermal conductivity, and hence has a greater cooling capacity. Furthermore, the water jacket around an engine is very effective in significantly dampening the mechanical noises.

On the flip side, water cooled heat exchangers / oil coolers are comparatively more expensive than an air cooled heat exchanger / oil cooler. Water also accelerates corrosion of metal parts, and is a favourable medium for biological growth – both of these disadvantages further add to maintenance costs.
