Solanus Quench Oil Cooler

A major manufacturer of automotive bearings in Southeast United States worked with Dry Coolers to size the proper quench oil cooler. Needs included only using air for a cooling media as water cooling quench oil is too dangerous.  Heat load was 200 kilograms per hour of bearing quality steel cooled from 900°C into a 80°C quench oil tank.

A Solanus cooler with redundant external rotor quiet cooling fans was selected.  Customer provided a circulating pump and the controls.  Solanus cooler has been installed since October 2013.

Project Goal

Provide a reliable and safe air cooled heat exchanger for the cooling of quench oil in a heat treat manufacturing line

Project Results

High quality and reliable Solanus quench oil cooler with redundant fans to keep the continuous heat treating furnace quench tank cool in a safe and consistent manner.
