When considering the appropriate coolant for your application, it is important to remember the following coolant filtration pointers:
Coolant filtration engine coolants have a simple role – to remove and transfer heat generated in an engine into the cooling system.
Coolant filtration is necessary as the coolant absorbs engine component heat and is then circulated through the cooling system.
Combustion in an engine can result in temperatures greater than 3 100 °C, with the cooling system and cooling filtration removing most of the heat.
As the function of a cooling system is to absorb unwanted engine heat, dissipate heat away from the engine and provide protection for components, the coolant in these systems circulate from 45 000 to 60 000 litres per hour, providing intense coolant filtration.
Only 35% of energy from combustion in an engine is useful! 33% is lost via the exhaust system and heat, and the remainder 32% is removed by coolant. This fact is indicative of how important coolant filtration is in a cooling system.
Hytec Fluid Technology was appointed Master Dealer for Cummins Filtration’s range of Fleetguard engine products in South Africa in 2015.
The product range incorporates coolant filtration, fuel filtration; lube filtration; air filtration; crankcase ventilation; and hydraulic systems, ideal for mobile heavy-duty machinery.
Cummins Filtration opened a new filtration and coolant filtration manufacturing plant in Woodmead, Johannesburg, South Africa which includes Cummins Filtration’s component warehousing and local manufacturing facility. The manufacturing facility produces Fleetguard fuel and air filters, and with regards to coolant filtration, also produces Fleetguard Organic Acid Technology engine coolant.
Fleetguard is ranked as one of the top two global brands in the international filtration market!
