The small and flexible package is used for both cooling and heating applications in many different motor vehicles. No separate oil circuit termostat is needed.
• Power steering cooling
• Engine oil cooling
• Diesel fuel cooling
• Hydraulic Systems
• Transmission oil cooling
The use of only pure aluminum eliminates internal, electrolytic corrosion.
Large passages and smooth flow patterns make it extremely tolerant to dirty water.
Solid aluminum, O-ring seals and no soldering give highest leakage protection.
Weight and space
The light aluminum cast, means a substantial weight reduction, compared to other materials. The piping can be reduced to a minimum. Little space is needed because of the cylindrical shape and the large range of fittings.
The heat exchanger allows freedom in installation.
The combined engine and transmission oil heat exchanger with integrated filters can be installed separately from the engine. A compact installation is easy to do.
The heat exchanger
The heat exchanger consists of a housing and a core with fins, 0.2 millimeter thick. The distance between them is 0.3 millimeter. Inside the heat exchanger is a core which has an almost infinite number of interconnected laminar flow coolers. The area is about five times larger than a conventional heat exchanger of the same dimensions.
The customized cast housing design, separate or integrated with other components, is a Laminova speciality. The assembly is done without soldering. All connections are sealed with O-rings.
The Laminova design means an ability to tune the coolant flow pattern for maximizing heat dissipation.
The laminar flow means low pressure drop. A unique feature is that the large oil flow can be easily divided internally into several parallel flows, whereby pressure drop is kept extremely low.
