The maintenance of heavy vehicle in most optimum operating method is very important for success of the business. Some of the essential requirement in maintenance of the coolants is the accurate temperature to avoid overheating and boil over, implementing effective inhibitors of corrosion and protecting engines to freeze up in coolest temperature.
The major challenge in maintenance of heavy duty engines is utilizing the appropriate coolant/antifreeze at the appropriate duration. If an appropriate cooling system is not utilized the overall durability, fuel economy, vehicle’s horsepower and emissions can be affected.
For the preservation of the heavy engines, manufacturers add organic and inorganic salts, chemicals (corrosive inhibitors) to coolant for prevention from corroding because water and glycol are natural corrosive. To protect the corrosion, the right type of inhibitors with combination of right coolant is necessary.
