Oil coolers resist fouling — The HC Series of hydraulic oil coolers feature low-fouling, nonlouvered air fins. To reduce noise levels or simplify installation, the fan motors may be operated at a variety of oil. Users can adjust fan speed by increasing or decreasing the oil-flow rate to the hydraulic motor driving the fan. Several models are available, with flow ratings from 1.6 to 23.4 gpm and displacements from 0.218 to 1.95 in.3 The coolers are rated for maximum working pressure to 250 psi and maximum working temperatures of 250°F.
