The Radiator technology

The Radiator technology

Radiators are used for cooling internal combustion engines, mainly in automobiles but also in piston-engined aircraft, railway locomotives, motorcycles, stationary generating plant or any similar use of such an engine. Internal combustion engines are often cooled by passing a liquid called engine coolant through the engine block, where it is heated, then through the radiator itself where it loses heat to the atmosphere, and then back to the engine in a closed loop. Engine coolant is usually water-based, but may also be oil. It is common to employ a water pump to force the engine coolant to circulate, and also for an axial fan to force air through the radiator. Automobiles and motorcycles In automobiles and motorcycles with … Continue reading

THERMOSTAT REPLACEMENT

THERMOSTAT REPLACEMENT

Why replace your thermostat? The thermostat has two important jobs to perform: to accelerate engine warm-up and to regulate the engine’s operating temperature. A quality thermostat ensures excellent fuel economy, reduces engine wear, diminishes emissions, improves cold weather drivability, provides adequate heater output to keep you warm and comfortable while driving and detours engine overheating. This is accomplished by blocking the circulation of coolant between the engine and radiator until the engine has reached its predetermined temperature. The thermostat then opens as required in response to changes in coolant temperature to keep the engine’s temperature within the desired operating … Continue reading

Reduce Climate Change

Reduce Climate Change

The vehicles we drive release over 1.7 billion metric tons of greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere each year—mostly in the form of carbon dioxide (CO2)—contributing to global climate change. Each gallon of gasoline you burn creates 20 pounds of CO2. That’s about 6 to 9 tons of CO2 each year for a typical vehicle. How can 6 pounds of gasoline create 19 pounds of carbon dioxide? It seems impossible that a gallon of gasoline, which weighs about 6.3 pounds, could produce 20 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) when burned. However, most of the weight of the CO2doesn’t come from … Continue reading

NASA is Making Hot, Way Cool

NASA is Making Hot, Way Cool

By: Lori Keesey NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. The more advanced the electronics, the more power they use. The more power they use, the hotter they get. The hotter they get, the more likely they’ll overheat. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand what typically happens next: The electronics fry. The new cooling device of the future from NASA. In the world of electronics, thermal control is always one of the limiting factors — particularly in space where there is no air to help cool down electronic components. However, Jeffrey Didion, a thermal engineer at the … Continue reading

Research: Li-ion battery has surprisingly small ecological footprint

Research: Li-ion battery has surprisingly small ecological footprint

According to EMPA, lithium batteries are highly competitive under ecological aspects. The Li-ion battery has relatively little impact on the eco-footprint of the cars; what affects the environment much more than the battery is the electric energy required to recharge the battery. If this energy is generated by means of today’s energy mix most common across Europe (hydro power, fossil energy and nuclear energy), during an anticipated e-car life cycle of 150.000 km, the generation of the electric power causes three times higher environmental burden than the battery. Only 15 percent of the e-car ecologic footprint accounts for production, … Continue reading
