Hydraulic Drive Systems for Engine Cooling Fans

Description

Bucher Hydraulics has developed an ideal system based on tried and tested components. It consists of the AP212 external gear pump, the APM212 fan drive motor and the ESLF 101 electronic control unit.

The external gear pump is available in various models and flange configurations, including those required for direct flange-mounting on all common internal combustion engines.

The fan drive motor is designed on the "building block" principle and can be supplied with the following options:

  • Outrigger bearing to support radial and axial loads
  • Integral anti-cavitation make-up valve
  • Integral control valves that are regulated electro-proportionally, electrically on/off or thermostatically
  • Drain port
  • High-pressure shaft seal
  • Right-hand, left-hand or reversible rotation

Advantages

  • The internal combustion engine reaches its optimum operating temperature quickly
  • Over-heating damage is prevented by monitoring and controlling up to 3 system values
  • Fail-safe function in the event of system failure 
  • Demand-regulated cooling:
    - less energy consumption
    - lower noise levels 
  • Reversible - leaves, dirt, etc. can be blown out of the radiator
