The Heavy Duty version of the radiator fits light and heavy-duty trucks, and off-highway equipment. They are built to sustain more stress and more heat generated over long periods of time.
AIR TO AIR HEAT EXCHANGERS
The air-to-air intercooler system is relatively simple. It uses airflow through the intercooler to remove heat from the compressed charge air. Heat is transferred from the charge (air) to the atmosphere (air) – hence the name “air-to-air”. “You have air coming in through the air intake, through the compressor, then to the front of the vehicle through the heat exchanger and then into the intake manifold,” Fenske explains of the air-to-air system.
The main component of the cooling system, a radiator’s main purpose is to keep an engine at the optimal operating temperature, which it achieves by absorbing excess heat generated by the engine and lowering the coolant temperature with the air passing through the vehicle’s front grille.
The primary job of the oil cooler is to cool the engine lubricating oil, which travels through the main oil rifle, allowing this cooled oil to not only lubricate but cool down a number of other components such as the crankshaft, bearings, camshaft, rods, and pistons.This cooling can impact overall performance. It helps keep the engine running smoothly, during hot weather gear changes or on long-haul trips, for example, when things sometimes have a tendency to overheat and break down.
