Heat Exchangers

Heat exchangers in mining equipment are critical for regulating temperatures in machinery, preventing overheating, and maintaining operational efficiency. These components are essential in systems where heat is a byproduct of mechanical processes, such as in engine cooling, hydraulic systems, and air compression.

Specific Products/Types/Categories

  1. Radiators: Used to cool internal combustion engines.

    • Aluminum Radiators

    • Copper-Core Radiators
  2. Oil Coolers: Keep engine and hydraulic oil at optimal temperatures.

    • Plate-Type Oil Coolers
    • Tube-and-Shell Oil Coolers
  3. Intercoolers (Charge Air Coolers): Used in turbocharged and supercharged engines to cool air compressed by the turbo/supercharger.

    • Air-to-Air Intercoolers
    • Water-to-Air Intercoolers
  4. Aftercoolers: Cool air discharged from air compressors.

    • Air-Cooled Aftercoolers
    • Water-Cooled Aftercoolers
  5. Heat Exchanger Accessories: Thermostats, gaskets, and mounting hardware.

FAQ

Q: How do I know when to replace a heat exchanger in my equipment? A: Signs like overheating, visible damage, leaks, or a noticeable drop in performance indicate it’s time to inspect and possibly replace your heat exchanger.

Q: Can heat exchangers be custom-made to fit specific equipment? A: Yes, at Funda Parts, we work with manufacturers  to provide custom heat exchanger solutions tailored to your specific machinery requirements.

Q: What’s the difference between air-cooled and water-cooled aftercoolers? A: Air-cooled aftercoolers use ambient air to cool compressed air, while water-cooled aftercoolers use a water circuit. The choice depends on your specific application and cooling requirements.

Q: Are aluminum radiators better than copper-core radiators? A: Aluminum radiators are lighter and have a high heat dissipation rate, while copper-core radiators are more durable. The choice depends on the specific needs of your machinery.

Q: How often should heat exchangers be serviced? A: Regular maintenance is key. Check manufacturer guidelines for specific intervals, but generally, an inspection and cleaning once a year is recommended.
