Special oil coolers are used to continuously cool the lubricating oil. This is achieved first by the flow of outside air or headwind across the cooling fins, and second by the coolant which flows around the oil cooler.
Together with the coolant system, the oil cooler maintains a thermal balance inside the engine. Cooling the lubricating oil also ensures that the oil film does not break away from those parts of the engine that must be lubricated.
The product range of BF offers repair shops complete oil coolers for all popular commercial vehicle diesel engines.
