Heat Dissipation Capacity of Steel Reservoirs
Surface Area (sq ft) Temp Diff (°F) Heat Dissipation
If the oil temperature is 140 degrees fahrenheit, and the air temperature is 75 degrees fahrenheit, how much heat will a reservoir with 20 square feet of surface area dissipate?
0.001 x Surface Area x Difference between oil and air temperature = horsepower
Heating Hydraulic Fluid Nodes:
1 HP = 2,544 BTU per Hour
1 watt will raise the temperature of 1 gallon by 1°F per hour
Horsepower x 745.7 = watts
Watts ÷ 1000 = kilowatts
