Coolants

It is a heat transfer fluid used to prevent its overheating, transferring the heat produced by the engine.
Coolant a.k.a antifreeze, protects your engine from freezing while defending components against corrosion,
as well as plays a critical role in sustaining overall engine heat balance by removing heat. In a heavy-duty
diesel engine, only one-third of the total energy produced works to propel the vehicle forward.

An additional one-third is removed as heat energy by the exhaust system. The remaining one-third of heat
energy produced is taken away by the coolant. This heat removed by the coolant provides a balance in the overall
removal of engine heat that is critical in ensuring that the engine operates properly. Overheating could result
in accelerated deterioration of the oil and subsequently the engine itself.

Technical Info:

A coolant is a fluid which flows through or around a device to prevent it’s overheating, transferring the heat produced by the device to other devices that use or dissipate it.

An ideal coolant has high thermal capacity, low viscosity, is low-cost, non-toxic, and chemically inert, neither causing nor promoting corrosion of the cooling system. Some applications also require the coolant to be an electrical insulator.

While the term coolant is commonly used in automotive and HVAC applications; in industrial processing, heat transfer fluid is one technical term more often used, in high temperature as well as low temperature manufacturing applications. Another industrial sense of the word covers cutting fluids.

The coolant can either keep its phase and stay liquid or gaseous, or can undergo a phase transition, with the latent heat adding to the cooling efficiency. The latter, when used to achieve low temperatures, is more commonly known as refrigerant.

Coolants provide vital rust protection and also reduce friction on water pump and seals. It acts as an excellent cooling medium and helps increase engine life & performance. Even though it gives excellent corrosion product for new generation aluminium engines,it’s an environment friendly product . There are coolants used in normal temperature areas and there are anti-freeze coolants which are used in places where the temperature drops below 0 degrees.
