Chevrolet Equinox Radiator
The radiators are heat exchangers which are used for the cooling and heating purposes to transfer thermal energy from one medium to another. A radiator is a device that consists of a large amount of cooling surface containing large amounts of air to effectively cool it out through the water. It has a broad variety of uses in the automotive industry. They are primarily used to refrigerate the automotive internal combustion engine.
What is the purpose of radiator?
The radiator would transfer the heat from the inside of the fluid to the outside air, thereby cooling the fluid, which in effect would cool the car engine. Also used for cooling automatic transmission fluids, air conditioner refrigerant, intake air, and often for cooling motor oil or power steering fluid.
How radiator works?
A cooling system will operate by sending a liquid refrigerant through passages in the block and heads of the engine. This would pick up heat from the car engine as the coolant would flow through these passages. Then, the hot fluid will make its way through a rubber hose to the front of the car radiator.
Where is radiator located?
As such, heat is forced away from the parts of the engine which would make the vehicle free from overheat. The radiator is usually placed behind the grille of the vehicle to hold the radiator, the fluid inside it, and the engine in peak conditions, while cold air is forced through it.
