CUSTOM SOLUTIONS

Mining is a challenging industry. By partnering with L&M Radiator, you have the benefit of our 60 years’ experience in design, manufacturing and support of our purpose-built Mesabi® heat transfer solutions.

Because we have designed and manufactured our own solutions since 1957, we are able to offer our customers a nearly limitless range of design options. L&M engineers work directly with customers, OEMs, engine manufacturers and fan suppliers to design reliability into every MESABI® heat exchanger. This includes working with OEMs in their plants and in the field to verify performance.

With a focus on understanding customer needs, then designing and manufacturing the very best heat transfer solutions to fulfill those needs L&M Radiator enjoys uncommonly strong customer relationships.

L&M Radiator designs, builds and tests all equipment to meet or exceed industry standards and exact Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) specifications.

Challenge:

Limited space for engine and oil cooling.

Solution:

“V-PACK” HEAT EXCHANGER PACKAGE

This frac truck powered by a 16V4000 Detroit Diesel rated at 3,000 horsepower had limited deck space. L&M engineers combined both engine and oil cooling in a common framework and fan – or “V-Pack.” The radiator forms one half of a “V”-shaped frame and the oil cooler the other half. Both share a horizontal fan at the top of the “V” which pulls air through the “V” and exhausts it upward and away from people and equipment.

Challenge:

Limited space; high ambient temperatures.

Solution:

LOW PROFILE, MULTI-COOLER PACKAGE

A blast hole drill rig required multi-functional cooling. Space was limited and with a height restriction. A second challenge was cooling adequate for worldwide ambient temperature extremes. L&M placed all four cooling functions into a single unit. Engine cooling is by standard MESABI® Model CSC™ 350 aluminum coolers. The flexible design feature MESABI® heat exchangers allowed the number of cooling tubes for each cooler to be optimized to assure cooling at high ambient temperatures.
