Cooling circuit

« Back to Glossary Index

A cool­ing cir­cuit is a con­trolled sys­tem for cool­ing a heat­ing or ex­ter­nal­ly heat­ed tech­ni­cal de­vice, such as a dri­ve or tool. Cool­ing me­dia (wa­ter, oils, etc.) are fed in­to a cool­ing cir­cuit. Their task is to en­sure that the heat en­er­gy is dis­si­pat­ed as quick­ly as pos­si­ble and, at best, in a con­trol­lable man­ner with as lit­tle loss as pos­si­ble. In in­dus­try, cool­ing cir­cuits are used, among oth­er things, in pro­duc­tion tech­nol­o­gy (cool­ing of workpieces/tools), in plas­tics tech­nol­o­gy (cool­ing of in­jec­tion mold­ing tools) or in process tech­nol­o­gy (process cooling).
