Oil coolers for the aftermarket
For passenger cars, the spare parts specialist is supplying oil coolers from the Pierburg brand. Under the BF brand, they are also adding to the international spare parts dealer’s existing range for utility vehicles. Meeting the company’s usual high standards, they all provide impressive OE quality. The scope of supply also includes matching gaskets.
Oil cooler function
Engine parts subject to high stresses, such as the pistons, use engine oil not only for lubrication and as a sealant, but also for cooling. The oil circulates through a closed circuit from the oil pan to the oil pump and on to the moving parts of the engine, before returning to the oil pan. An oil cooler integrated into the oil circuit provides additional cooling.
Nowadays, many oil coolers have a plate-based structure, with several plates lying on top of one another and forming separate channels. These channels alternate between ones filled with oil and ones filled with coolant agent. To improve the heat transfer, the channels may have structures to increase the surface area.
