COOPERATIVE PATENT CLASSIFICATION
F01P
COOLING OF MACHINES OR ENGINES IN GENERAL; COOLING OF INTERNAL-COMBUSTION ENGINES (arrangements in connection with cooling of propulsion units in vehicles B60K 11/00; heat-transfer, heat-exchange or heat-storage materials C09K 5/00; {cooling of gas-turbine engines F02C 7/12 }; heat exchange in general, radiators F28) [2013-01]
NOTES

  • In this subclass, the following terms or expressions are used with the meanings indicated:
    • "air" also includes other gaseous cooling fluids;
    • "liquid cooling" also includes cooling where liquid is used as the heat transferring fluid between parts to be cooled and the air, e.g. using radiators;
    • "air cooling" means direct air cooling and thus excludes indirect air cooling occurring in liquid cooling systems as explained herefore;
    • "cooling-air" includes directly or indirectly acting cooling-air.
  • Attention is drawn to the notes preceding class F01, especially as regards Note (3).
  • Cooling by lubricant is classified in subclass F01M when the lubrication aspect predominates and in subclass F01P when the cooling aspect predominates.
