Kustom Cooling Offers 60-GPM Hydraulic Reversing Fan System
Kustom Cooling, LLC, Coos Bay, Ore., has released a 60-gpm hydraulic reversing fan system, which is intended for applications that utilize a hydraulic motor to cool the radiator. The system eliminates the need to stop work in order to manually clean the cooling cores of equipment.
The reversing fan system has been available in a 25-gpm system and has successfully operated in various agricultural, forestry, refuse, and construction applications for the past few years. The reversing fan system is ideal for applications that have issues related to clogged radiators as a result of the environment that they are working in due to high amounts of air born debris.
Typically the 60-gpm hydraulic fan system will be used in larger pieces of equipment. Rather than replacing the OEM cooling fan that came on the machine, the Kustom hydraulic reversing fan system works in conjunction with the OEM system to take over control. This is accomplished with the use of the hydraulic manifold and the hydraulic control module. The Kustom manifold provides a distribution point that controls the direction and flow of hydraulic fluid to the fan motor. The Kustom control module processes a variety of inputs to allow for fan reversal for debris removal, variable speed to conserve fuel, and set points for fan turn on. In order for equipment to be able to do the required task continuously and effectively, clean efficient air exchange is a necessity. Not only will it extend the life of the fan motor and all the components that rely on properly maintained cooling system, but it also optimizes the overall efficiency of the equipment itself.
