CLEANFIX North America Ltd. announced the launch of its intelligent 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. Customer support is provided by the experienced team of CLEANFIX’ engineers and its global partners during the installation process. With regards to the many control and switching cycles of the engine, special attention was paid to the longevity of the fans.
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 intelligent 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. Thus, the CLEANFIX system remains tight should leakage occur.
The CLEANFIX reversible fans promise maximum efficiency. To reach this objective, the control range has been extended downwards and upwards in recent years. For CLEANFIX customers, this means that either more fuel is saved or that the air flow rate is further increased.
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. This can be very easily measured for tractors equipped with a dynamometer. Another focus was on small installation space and minimum weight.
