Big truck radiators are essential components within large trucks, buses, and other commercial vehicle cooling systems. These radiators play a crucial role in maintaining the optimal operating temperature of the vehicle's engine.
Big Truck Cooling
Big trucks often have complex cooling systems that include not only the radiator but also other components such as a fan, water pump, thermostat, other sensors, and hoses. The reliable operation of all these components is crucial for effective engine cooling.
The major component of the cooling system is the radiator, its primary function is to dissipate the heat generated by the engine during operation. It does this by circulating coolant through the engine and then through the radiator, where the heat is transferred to the surrounding air.
What are the different types of radiators in big trucks?
The main differences between the types of radiators in big trucks are primarily the construction materials used. Dura-Lite manufactures radiators with Plastic Tank/Aluminum Core, All Aluminum, Steel Tank/Copper Brass Core, and Brass Tank/Copper Core.
Dura-Lite has made improvements to the standard OE radiator to reinforce areas that are commonly prone to failure. Dura-Lite tanks are built tougher to hold up and flex under pressure. This stops stress cracking that can happen with other less flexible radiators.
