VDL Klima heat exchangers for the Maritime industry are used on ships around the world for the (in)direct cooling of cooling water and lubricating/hydraulic oil for equipment such as engines, motors, generators and transformers. In addition to traditional plate-type heat exchangers, demand is increasing for box coolers and pod drive coolers in this sector.
A box cooler is frequently used to cool main engines, auxiliary engines and generator sets. In these applications the cooler is placed in a ‘sea chest’, allowing sea water to pass directly through the cooler. This configuration can be used to dump heat from a complete on-board cooling circuit or for individual engines.
