Materials and Maintenance of Auto Radiator

As for car fans, if you want to maintain and protect your loving car, you must have a wonderful auto radiator. Do you want to get informed of it? If you want, please follow me.

What is Auto Radiator?

Auto radiator belongs to the auto cooling system. The auto radiator in the cooling system of engine consists of water entering chamber, water exiting chamber and main piece and radiator cores. Coolant goes through radiator core, and air flows outside the radiator core. On one hand, hot coolant goes cold because of transferring heat to the cold air. On another hand, cold air goes hot because of absorption of heat from coolant. So, auto radiator is actually a heat exchanger.

Classification of Auto Radiator

According to the flowing direction of coolant in the auto radiator, it can be classified into vertical-flowing radiator and cross-flowing radiator.

The structure of radiator core mainly consists of pipe-piece and pipe-belt radiator.

Materials of Auto Radiator

There are two main auto radiators as follows: aluminum and copper radiators. The former is usually applied in bus. The latter is used in large commercial vehicles.

The material and making technology of auto radiator is developing fast. On one hand, based on the light weight features, the aluminum radiator gradually replaces the copper radiator in fields of cars and light vehicles. On another hand, copper radiator has made great progress in manufacturing technology and processes. Copper brazing radiator has obvious advantages in bus, construction machinery, heavy trucks. The auto radiator in cars is mainly aluminum based on the environmental protection. This situation is popular in Europe and the United States. Of the European new cars, the aluminum auto radiator takes up sixty-four percent. Copper brazing radiator is also applied in bus, truck and other engineering equipment.

Use and Maintenance of Auto Radiator

1. The radiator shouldn't be exposed to any acid, alkali and other corrosive substance.

2. It is recommended that hard water should be softened before use to avoid the internal clogging and production of scale.

3. To avoid the corrosion of radiator in using antifreeze, it is necessary to use long-term anticorrosive antifreeze which is produced by regular manufacturers and meets the national standard.

4. In the process of installing the auto radiator, you shouldn't damage the radiator sheet to ensure the cooling capacity and good sealing.

5. When pouring water into auto radiator after complete draining of water, you should first turn on the draining switch of engine cylinder. As soon as the water flows away, you should turn it off to avoid the blisters.

6. In the daily use, you should always check the water level and add water after the engine is closed and the radiator is cooled down. When adding water, you should slowly open the water tank cover and be far away from the water entrance to avoid the burns by high-pressure steam oil sprayed from the water entrance.

7. In winter, the water in the radiator easily becomes the ice to lead to the rupture phenomena of radiator cores. Thus, if you park your car for long time, you should open the tank cover and turn on the water-draining switch to drain the water completely.

8. The spare radiator should be stored in the ventilated and dry condition.

9. According to the practical situation, users should completely clean the radiator core every one to three months. When cleaning the radiator, you should use water to flush against the wind direction.

10. Water level gauge should be cleaned every three months. All the parts of water level gauge should be removed and cleaned by water and non-corrosive detergent.
