Car Radiators – The Different Types

Car radiators are heat exchangers, utilized for heating internal combustion engines, primarily in cars but also in turbine-powered aircraft, railway locomots, motorcycles, power generating plants or any other such use of such an efficient engine. The radiator has a conical shaped body, wherein a burner, usually a small one, is placed. This burner supplies heat to the engine thus making it sing. The conical shape of the radiator facilitates the passage of hot air from the engine over the hotter surface of the radiator, and this heated surface is usually called the ‘blower’.

There are two types of car radiators. The first is the dry cell that incorporates a water-saturated sponge on its surface and acts as a heat reservoir. This heat reservoir draws away the heat radiated by the engine thus ensuring that the engine runs smoothly even during operation. The second type of radiator is the wet cell that includes a thin film of evaporated water along with metal plates and fins. These wet cells are usually set up in the engine block of a power generating plant, where they absorb heat radiated by the plant while holding back the emission of smoke and dirt from the exhaust.

There are three types of car radiators namely; front radiator, top radiator and the bonnet. The front car radiator is placed nearest to the driver’s front sight, which is usually fixed to the bonnet. The top car radiator is placed above the hood or ‘top-panel’ of the vehicle. The bonnet is generally located behind the driver’s seat in the engine compartment and is a box-shaped box with a fan and ductwork on its outer surface. The car radiators to cool the engine by circulating cooling air through the engine and its various components. They vary in their cooling capacities and efficiency, depending upon their overall size and structure.

They are available in various colors such as black, red, silver, grey and blue. The most common and popular car radiator is the bonnet radiator, which is found at the front end of the engine compartment and has a fan and ductwork that allow for proper ventilation and cooling of the entire cooling system. The size of the bonnet car radiator depends upon its cooling capacity and efficiency. The widest range of this type of car radiators is the twin piece units that are placed at the front end of the engine, either side by side or front and rear depending on the type of unit.

The second type of radiator is the water pump mounted inside the engine compartment. The water pump car radiators, like the bonnet ones, are located above the engine, either side by side or front and rear depending on the type of unit. The water pump unit functions to cool the engine by circulating coolant and water through the engine’s various components. Some water pump units also feature a water pump return which allows for more efficient cooling of the engine when hot water is required.

As is the case with any car radiator, it is important that car radiators are maintained regularly and cleaned regularly in order to ensure that they provide optimum service for as long as possible. It is very important that car radiators never open while the engine is running. This is because a broken radiator could cause severe damage to an engine if it is opened by mistake, leading to a complete replacement of the entire radiator system. It is also extremely dangerous to use an opened radiator to over-clock the engine, as excess heat can lead to engine failure and even leading to the loss of the car altogether!
