Plate Type Lube Oil Cooler

Lube oil cooler

All engines use oil as a lubricant to seal the compression chamber and reduce piston wear and friction. Friction and the heat from combustion increase the oil temperature, reducing its viscosity.

If the oil temperature becomes too high, the low viscosity makes the protective oil film too thin for effective protection and sealing. The result is increased wear on moving parts, reduced efficiency for the machine and a shorter life for the oil. The excess heat in the lube oil must be removed efficiently with minimal pressure-drop and impact on weight and space, which demands a solution such as a SWEP compact brazed plate heat exchanger (BPHE).

There are many uses for power. The same engine model can be found in many situations with very different applications. Large-scale engines with outputs ranging from kW to several MW can be used to propel marine vessels or to provide electricity and heat when the appropriate infrastructure is unavailable.
