That which radiates or emits rays, whether of light or heat; especially, that part of a heating apparatus from which the heat is radiated or diffused; as, a steam radiator.
Any of various devices for cooling an internal substance by radiation, as a system of rings on a gun barrel for cooling it, or a nest of tubes with large radiating surface for cooling circulating water, as in an automobile.
Heating unit that is exposed and which transfers heat generated by hot eater or steam through conduction. When the air circulates around the radiator using convention, the room is heated.
Part of an engine cooling system through which excess combustion heat is lost to the atmosphere by means of forced convection using a circulating liquid such as anti-freeze to effect heat transfer.
A heat exchanger used to remove heat from the coolant in the cooling system containing a vertical- or horizontal-finned tubing section connected between two tanks.
heater consisting of a series of pipes for circulating steam or hot water to heat rooms or buildings
a mechanism consisting of a metal honeycomb through which hot fluids circulate; heat is transferred from the fluid through the honeycomb to the airstream that is created either by the motion of the vehicle or by a fan
a common used term for many different types of heat exchanges
a cooling device, the only reason he would gain HP is if it somehow reduced engine drag along the principles of underdrive pullies, otherwise it shouldnt have any affect on HP
a device which is designed to dissipate heat with the aid of a coolant
a heating device that circulates steam or hot water through pipes found inside an upright metal structure
a must for any car type may it be a truck, SUV, van, sedan or coupe to avoid overheating of engine especially if you are in a hurry to go somewhere or driving in an isolated unfamiliar location
a physical element, without movable parts nor flames, destined to the heat contribution of some element or stay
a type of heat exchanger
The component of the cooling system that dissipates excess engine heat into the air.
a mechanical device that transmits heat by the process of radiation
A cast iron heat distribution device containing hot water or steam that can be a free-standing unit or recessed into a wall.
Transfers heat from the liquid coolant to the outside air, keeping engine operating in optimum temperature zone.
High surface area heat exchanger where as much as 40% of the engines heat , carried by the coolant is exchanged with cooling air and thus dissipated. Typically manufactured from copper/brass in heavy duty application with a current tendency toward aluminum for reduced weight.
A series of vanes and fins that conducts heat from the coolant and allows outside air to carry it away.
Cooling device through which the engine coolant is passed, situated in an airflow and consisting of a system of fine tubes and fins for rapid heat dissipation.
a heating element, typically metal, used in conjunction with water or steam to give off heat.
A radiator is a part of your car where hot water circulates through honeycomb shapes to cool down.
A heating unit which is supplied heat through a hot water system.
The grid of specially shaped metal tubes behind the grill of your car. Hot coolant passes through these cores and is cooled by the air passing over them. This is the principal method of cooling an internal combustion engine.
Part of the cooling system for a water-cooled engine, mounted in the front of the car and connected to the engine with rubber hoses. Through the radiator, excess combustion heat is dissipated into the atmosphere through forced convection using a water and glycol-based mixture that circulates through, and cools, the engine.
Part of the vehicle through which the coolant flows to be cooled.
A device necessary for water cooled engines to cool down the water. It is a gray flat box, which is usually located on the other side of the driver than the engine itself.
A heat exchanger used to cool the engines coolant. Needs air flow to dissipate the heat out of the radiators core. Coolant heat is unwanted by product of the engines power.
The part of the cooling system that gets rid of the engine heat. Coolant from the engine flows past the thermostat and into the radiator where it is cooled by air passing through the fins. Internal corrosion and hairline cracks caused by vibration are the
A heating device that transfers heat from the heated fluid within to the air outside.
A device that cools the liquid in the cooling system by allowing it to circulate through a series of water channels, which are exposed to air ducts. F1 radiators are located in the sidepods just after the air intake holes.
A heating unit which transfers heat by radiation to objects within visible range and by conduction to the surrounding air which, in turn, is circulated by natural convection; a so-called radiator is also a convector, but the term radiator has been established by long usage.
How to make the work of your team seem hot with lots of charts See Information Radiators.
Device consisting of two tanks inter-connected by numerous thin-walled tubes and thin metal fins (core) used to remove heat from the coolant circulating through an engine.
A room heat delivery (or exchanger) component of a hydronic (hot water or steam) heating system; hot water or steam is delivered to it by natural convection or by a pump from a boiler.
A device for cooling water that is passed through a series of small passages to maximize its surface area and at the same time air is passed over the water to draw the heat away from it.
Radiators and convectors are types of heat exchangers designed to transfer thermal energy from one medium to another for the purpose of cooling and heating. This article discusses radiators that are constructed to function in automobiles, buildings, and electronics.
