CLEANFIX® North America Ltd has announced the launch of its new hydraulic cooling fans used in a wide range of agricultural, forestry, construction, waste and recycling equipment to prevent problems associated with overheating and inefficiency of the engine. The key benefits to customers are more power on the PTO shaft and on the wheels, fuel savings, and noise reduction as engine speed can be reduced.
CLEANFIX® now offers the standard reversing fan with hydraulic actuation (HSC-Series) in addition to the standard reversing function, the thermal-controlled variable blade pitch controlled fan (HVP-Series with wax elements) plus a fully electronically controlled CLEANFIX®-Hytronic fan (HT-Series). The latter controls the exact blade angle and thus the cooling performance by using CAN bus or the CLEANFIX® electronics with an integrated Hall sensor. CLEANFIX® electronics can also be replaced by the vehicle or engine electronics.
Keeping the system free of leaks in particular at high speeds, high temperatures and pressures up to 50bar is a challenge that the CLEANFIX® Smart-Seal System (patented)meets in the new reversible fans. This sealing system ensures maximum operating safety through the new integrated leakage oil recirculation – both for the piston seal as well as for the rotary intake.
Comparative measurements of customers and manufacturers as well as tests by independent institutes, such as the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany), certify that the CLEANFIX® reversible fans save up to 30% of the drive power in comparison to electronically controlled standard viscous fans while delivering the same cooling capacity.
