Coordinating the Complete Cooling Package 720717

There is more to the cooling system than just the jacket water radiator. Consideration must be given to the heat generated by the torque converter, hydraulic system, turbo-charger, lube oil cooler, and the air conditioning. Total heat load, water pump flow, fan performance, deaeration, and drawdown requirements dictate further considerations. Reasonable preliminary evaluation of these significant aspects of a cooling system can save manufacturing costs as well as operating costs, while effectively prolonging the life of the machine. A simple check list can save both time and money.
