[b]Cooling System for Fluid Power Application[b]

[b]Cooling System for Fluid Power Application[b]

[b]Cooling System for Fluid Power Application[b]

(OP)
Hello Guys,
I am beginner in designing fluid power applicaton. I need your expertise advice for the problem we have now.
We are designing some electrohydraulic system for spooling cable. The system will equiped with 2 discbrakes for controlling the cable tension, Hydraulic accumulator, one hydraulic motor, one hydraulic pump & 11 kW electric motor as power source.
The system almost finish unless the heat exchangers for cooling system.
I have no idea to size the cooling system.
We planned to make some air cooled HE, with fan installed on shaft of Elect. Motor & Hyd. Pump. And Circular tubing with fin at the outer side of fan. The size of tubing is about 1/2 " ID.
I need some formula to size the diameter of circular tubing and how much circle i should build.
(The power loss which is converted to heat, estimated will be about 25 % of Power Supply (2.75 kW))


RE: [b]Cooling System for Fluid Power Application[b]

hi there, a few tips hopefully they will be of help.
New system.
1. pump loss 15% of input power.
2. motor loss 15% of input power.
3. R/V loss BTU/HR average ( 1.5 x PSI x GPM )
4. Flow control loss use press diff across in to out as PSI in calculation.
5. Press reducing loss if any use same calculation as above.
6. Total all losses this will give a fair heat loss for the system.
7. Calculate heat radiation from tank, take into account ambient and the temp to be maintained, Match the heat radiated from the tank and the calculated heat load, this will show whether you need additional cooling.

As a rule of thumb 25% of input power to take care of all miscellaneous losses, after this estimation, a 1/3rd of heat is radiated from piping and cylinders, pumps, motors.
the remainder is radiated from the tank

White Paper - Guide to Integrate Large-Format Additive
As with any new technology, getting into large-format 3D printing begins with investigation. The first question may be a simple one: what does “large-format” mean? For 3D printers, “large” is a relative term. Many extrusion-based (FFF) 3D printers are referred to as desktop machines, because they fit on table space. Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers. Download Now
eBook - Efficient and Effective Production Support with 3D Printed Jigs and Fixtures
Jigs and fixtures offer manufacturers a reliable process for delivering accurate, high-quality outcomes, whether for a specific part or feature, or for consistency across multiples of parts. Although the methodologies and materials for producing jigs and fixtures have evolved beyond the conventional metal tooling of years past, their position as a manufacturing staple remains constant due to the benefits they offer.
