How to choose water cooled oil cooler and air cooled oil cooler?
There are two main types of hydraulic oil coolers; one is the water-cooled type, which uses water as a cooling medium to cool the hydraulic oil. The second is the air-cooled type. Wind is used as a cooling medium to cool the hydraulic oil.
How to choose? According to working situation, consider which hydraulic oil cooler is more suitable.
If the water source is abundant, we can use the water-cooled oil cooler. Disadvantages: The scale needs to be cleaned regularly. If the water quality is not good, there is a risk of pipe breakage and water and oil mixing.
Air-cooled oil cooler doesn't require cooling water source, hydraulic oil is cooled by ambient air, which is convenient for installation and maintenance, without worrying about the mixing of oil and water.
