Cooling Methods

REULAND is at the forefront of advance liquid cooling of the AC motors. Liquid cooled machinery delivers the following superior performance characteristics and is essential for your demanding applications.

High Power and High Speed

Speed dictates the size of rotating machinery . Mechanical stresses are greater at high speeds which drives high speed machinery into smaller packages. If power and speed requirements are high, then enhances liquid cooling can be used to increase heat transfer efficiency and allow higher ewer density.

Lower Inertia capabilities

Designers specify low inertia when they want a responsive systems. Low inertia dictates small rotor diameters for electric motors. For giver power rating, a smaller rotor will require enhances heat transfer through liquid cooling.

Smaller Size and Lower Weight

When the envelope for a machine is small, or weight constraints drive the machine size down, then a liquid cooled machine in a smaller frame size can be utilised.

Low Noise

Liquid cooled machinery is much quieter. The cooling system can pump cooling fluid to the machine from a remote area, thus eliminating ambient noise pollution.

More Reliable / Longer Life

Liquid cooled motors provide more reliable operation. This is due to, better lubrication, a reduction in operating temperature and reduction of temperature gradients in the motor. Temperature gradients result in differential expansion of components. This makes difficult to hold tight tolerances i the machine construction and can result in high component stresses and increase wear rates.

Well Suited for high Ambient Temp and Contaminated Applications

Liquid cooling provides an alternatives to air cooling in high contamination areas or areas with high ambient temperatures. Mining, atomiser systems, injection molding and machines housed in a housed in an enclosed space are excellent candidates for liquid cooling.

Well Suited for Confined Area Applications

Hot air exits the machine in a typical air cooled system and is allowed to exhaust into the surrounding area. This is particularly undesirable in confined areas where additional ventilation may be required. The waste heat can be dissipated with a liquid cooled system by pumping the hot cooling fluid to a designated external area.

Well Suited for Precision Applications

Process control standards are forcing facilities to control environmental temperatures. Liquid cooling provides superior temperature control to arrest thermal growth problems, control performance variations, and control ambient temperatures in sensitive processes.
