Oil Coolers

GHT is the only aluminum cooler manufacturer in the world to achieve Canada Wide CRN certification.

Canada Wide CRN Certification

Forum’s coolers are ASME complaint. They were designed in accordance with ASME 2015 BPVC Section II (materials), VIII (construction) and IX (welding).

ASME Compliant

GHT is Alberta Boiler Safety Association (ABSA) Certified to manufacture aluminum Coolers.

ABSA Certified

Forum’s brazed aluminum coolers are engineered to assure operational survivability in three modes- transport, static and operational. Cooler dead load is 50/50 glycol water at 75% of cooler volume plus combined cooler component weight.

Cooler Design

Forum’s coolers have been engineered to the following factors:

  • Dead load at 2.5G Vertical Load Factor
  • Dead load at 1.6G longitudinal load factor
  • Dead load at 1.4G lateral load factor

Transport:

Dead load plus centered 300lb abuse load in worst-case direction.

Operation:

Dead load plus cooler operational load in worst-case direction.
Analysis considers highest load from each mode, typically transport vertical, to determine cooler survivability from attach point inward to critical tank to core weld.

Temperature Cycle Testing

GHT has done extensive product testing to ensure our coolers live in high temperature applications. GHT coolers have been tested up to 600F with no signs of failure

Pressure Testing

GHT coolers have been third party burst tested to over 2200 psi- the highest rating in the industry.
