About the Product

Radiators are heat exchangers that are used to cool internal combustion engines, mostly in vehicles, but also in piston-engined aircraft, railway locomotives, motorbikes, stationary generating facilities, and other applications. We're talking about an automobile radiator here.

Internal combustion engines are frequently cooled by cycling engine coolant through the engine block, where it is heated, then through a radiator, where it loses heat to the environment, and finally back to the engine. Engine coolant is often water-based, although it can also be oil-based. A water pump is commonly used to push the engine coolant to circulate, as is an axial fan to drive air through the radiator.
