Oil Cooler Application Testing and Nomenclature
This SAE Recommended Practice is applicable to oil-to-air and oil-to-water oil coolers installed on mobile or stationary equipment and provides a glossary of oil cooler nomenclature. Such oil coolers may be used for the purpose of cooling automatic transmission fluid, hydraulic system oil, retarder system fluid, etc. This document outlines the methods of procuring the test data to determine the operating characteristics of the oil cooling system and the interpretation of the results.
This document has been expanded to include information previously published in SAE J1244, “Oil Cooler Nomenclature and Glossary” and SAE J2414, “Application Testing of Oil-to-Water Oil Coolers for Heat Transfer Performance”. This brings all of the SAE Oil Cooler Recommended Practices into one document.
Technical content previously published in SAE J1468 APR2006 is in Sections 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.
Technical content previously published in SAE J2414 JUN2005 is in Sections 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.
Technical content previously published in SAE J1244 FEB2008 is in Section 13.
