The OCLP model (CSA US Certified) is a coolant preheater designed to maintain optimal temperatures for diesel and gas engines in stationary land power and marine applications. The OCLP is designed as a plate mounted, user-friendly, pre-packaged system that includes all necessary components. The OCLP’s remote automatic function and customer interface connections enable it to be easily integrated into any control system.
In order to improve engine startability and availability, the OCLP maintains a consistent and uniform temperature by circulating heated coolant throughout the engine block and heated oil throughout the sump – eliminating hot spots and ensuring oil viscosity is at optimal levels for engine protection. When compared to cold starts, maintaining optimal engine heat during down time lowers NOx emissions during startup. Engine heating also eliminates the need for extended idling, reducing overall maintenance expenses.
In oil and gas applications, improving equipment availability and maintaining system readiness are critical factors in reducing expenses and improving the bottom line. In cold climates, HOTSTART heating systems ensure immediate startup on demand even in freezing temperatures. In warm, humid climates, HOTSTART systems maintain equipment above the dew point, eliminating the risk of condensation forming inside the heads during cool down periods.
