Turn your oil filter into an oil cooler
with "COOL COLLAR"
GTX 10W30 motor oil was heated to a
temperature of 220 degrees F. and pumped simultaneously through two identical
oil filters. One oil filter had a Cool Collar attached, the other did not.
A fan was used to direct seventy degree F. ambient air over both oil filters
at a velocity of fifty miles per hour.The oil exiting the filter having
the Cool Collar installed indicated a "heat removal" of two degrees
per minute. Whereas the oiltemperature exiting the filter without the Cool
Collar showed no change.(Typically an automotive engine passes all the oil
through the filter more than once per minute).
With a constant heat source applied to
the oil, the temperature dropped to 202 degrees F (from 220 degrees F.)
with five minutes.This translates to a 12% temperature decrease of the heat
added to ambient temperature.
Liquid Cooled Automotive Engine
This test was an actual highway test.The car used was a late model Corvette
equipped with digital readout oil temperature and coolant temperature gauges.On
a 72 degree F. day, at 65 miles per hour, the oil temperature read a constant
221 degrees F.The water temperature was 195 degrees.The corvette was then
pulled off the road and a Cool Collar was installed.Testing was then resumed.Within
a distance of five miles the Cool Collar was responsible for lowering and
maintaining the oil temperature at 203 degrees F.
The tests again indicated a 12% approximate
reduction above ambient temperature of oil heat.On similar testes, it was
found that after installation of the Cool Collar the oil temperature will
typically drop near to the level of the engine coolant temperature.
(Road Test) Air Cooled Automotive
Vehicle used was a 1978, 911SC Porsche, equipped with a carrera style oil
cooler.The car was driven 65 MPH on a 85 degree day for approximately 35
miles. The car was then stopped and a I.R. thermometer was used to check
the temperatures at various points along the oil lines, tank and cooler.
In addition, the reading on the dash temperature gauge was noted.An average
temperature of 220 degrees was logged.
Testing was then resumed, with the "Cool Collar" installed on
the oil filter, over the same coarse and speed.At the end of the 35 miles
the temperatures were then checked again using the infra-red thermometer
at the same points as before. The indicated temperature readings showed
an average reading of 208 degrees, a reduction of 12 degrees.
