  • The cooling agents customarily employed are air and a liquid (usually or a solution of water and ), either alone or in combination. In some cases, direct contact with ambient air (free ) may be sufficient; in other cases, it may be necessary to employ forced-air convection, created either by a fan or by the natural motion of the hot body. Liquid is typically moved through a continuous loop in the cooling system by a .

    , apparatus employed to keep the temperature of a structure or device from exceeding limits imposed by needs of safety and efficiency. If overheated, the oil in a mechanical loses its lubricating capacity, while the fluid in a hydraulic coupling or converter leaks under the pressure created. In an , overheating causes deterioration of the insulation. The pistons in an overheated may seize (stick) in the cylinders. Cooling systems are employed in automobiles, industrial plant machinery, nuclear reactors, and many other types of machinery. (For a treatment of cooling systems used in buildings, see .)

  • In an , the motion of the vehicle provides sufficient forced-convection cooling for the transmission and the gears in the rear axle; in the , however, so much energy is released that, except for some early models and certain small cars with low-powered engines, air cooling is inadequate, and a water cooling system (radiator) is required.

    A typical automotive cooling system comprises (1) a series of channels cast into the engine block and cylinder head, surrounding the combustion chambers with circulating liquid to carry away heat; (2) a , consisting of many small tubes equipped with a honeycomb of fins to convect heat rapidly, that receives and cools hot liquid from the engine; (3) a water pump, usually of the centrifugal type, to circulate the liquid through the system; (4) a thermostat to control temperature by varying the amount of liquid going to the radiator; and (5) a fan to draw fresh air through the radiator.

  • Cooling Tower Systems, Inc.

    Cooling Tower Systems has manufactured cooling tower lines and related equipment for over 40 years, with five different models in production. We are the oldest, full service fiberglass cooling tower manufacturer in business today.

    All CTS cooling towers are designed, engineered and tested by our own factory research and development laboratory. Our towers are second to none in quality and energy efficiency, and produce a lower total cost of ownership than any comparable cooling tower solution.

    The fiberglass construction of a CTS cooling tower makes the tower durable, while also making it unmatched time and time again in price. The lighter weight of a fiberglass tower enables a smaller, more energy-efficient fan motor to be used...a cost savings from the moment it is in use.
    Installing a water recycling system is a good environmental and public relations choice. CTS makes this choice smarter. The amount of energy saved by using our cooling towers make it an industry favorite for companies who are conscious about making a wise environmental and financial choice.

    Head gasket failures are often the result of engine overheating (which may have occurred because of a coolant leak elsewhere in the cooling system, a bad thermostat, or an electric cooling fan not working). When the engine overheats, thermal expansion can crush and damage portions of the head gasket. This damaged areas may then start to leak combustion pressure and/or coolant.

The thermostat’s main job is to allow the engine to heat up quickly, and then to keep the engine at a constant temperature. It is designed to stop the flow of coolant through the cooling system while the engine is warming up to operating temperature. An engine needs to operate at a particular heat range to be efficient. Once the engine is warm the thermostat will open to allow coolant flow and cool the engine. A thermostat consists of a main housing, a plunger style of valve and a temperature sensitive mercury filled plunger that acts as the sensing and activating device with a return spring. A thermostat maintains engine temperature as it opens and closes throughout the engine operation.
