DK: the new radiator by Luvata

On display at Power-Gen Europe Conference June 12-14, 2012 Cologne - Hall 6, Booth E81

(12 March 2012). DK, the latest addition to the Luvata radiator family, is for applications in the industrial and power generation sectors, including cooling of big diesel or dual-fuel engines.

Already adopted by some of the global diesel engine giants for installation in large power generation plants, DK is the result of close cooperation among different Luvata Heat Transfer Solutions units in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and meets or exceeds the latest requirements of the industry and allows for a variety of customization and special options.

Based on a structural concept taken from the KCE – a product for industrial applications by Luvata’s branded ECO Coils&Coolers  – but designed to meet the specific requirements of a diesel motor fluid cooler, DK features components with increased thickness for optimal sturdiness, specifically designed fixing points and available options developed ad hoc for unique applications.

The basic model includes optimised ventilated axial sections, equipped with asynchronous internal rotor fan-motors, already meeting with the strict rules on energy efficiency set by the ErP 2013/2015 directives; special fan-motors with electronic commutation (EC) control are available to meet customers’ specific needs.

Thanks to its complete re-design, DK now offers considerably reduced sound levels and optimised energy consumption, to maximize the environmental compatibility for this specific application.

As with other Luvata products, DK also offers a wide range of options, some of which were included in the original product design, originating from a modular concept that includes up to 7 modules, and a wide choice of fan-motor diameters offered as standard.

“The power generation industry has particularly strict and demanding standards, where mistakes or performance failures are not tolerated,” says Giovanni Franco, Technical Manager at Luvata Söderköping. “DK is the result of Luvata’s many years of experience and know-how sharing that delivers a specific product aimed at the very delicate technical and performance related issues of this industry. The product not only guarantees the highest performance, but also the highest safety, reliability and durability on the market today.”

To better serve the international markets and to meet the growing EMEA demand, DK is manufactured at Luvata’s Söderköping, Sweden and Guadalajara, Spain locations.

The DK standard version will be on display in Luvata’s Power-Gen Europe booth in Cologne, June 12 - 14 (Hall 6, booth E81).
