Still think that antifreeze can only be used in winter?
July 11, 2022
The full name of antifreeze is "antifreeze coolant", which means coolant with antifreeze function. It sounds like it can only be used in winter. It is said that 90% of users are misled by the name of antifreeze, thinking that antifreeze is only used in winter, but is it really like that?
The full name of antifreeze is "antifreeze coolant", which means coolant with anti-freeze function. It sounds like it can only be used in winter, and it is said that 90% of users are misled by the name of antifreeze, thinking that antifreeze is only used in winter, but is it really like that?
Antifreeze can prevent the coolant from freezing and cracking the radiator and freezing the engine cylinder block or cover when the diesel generator set is parked in the cold winter. In addition to protecting the unit in winter, the best effect of engine cooling in summer is not water but antifreeze, so do not think that antifreeze is only used in winter, in fact, in some areas also need antifreeze in summer.
In different areas, different antifreeze should be added.
1, in the north, the year-round temperature is relatively low in the south, the lowest temperature may drop to minus tens of degrees, so such areas in the purchase of antifreeze, the model has to choose negative 35 degrees or more to be able to, and the water tank should be maintained year-round use of antifreeze, and can not be cooled with ordinary water.
2, in the central region of China, to Jiangsu around the region, for example, most of the year-round temperature is mostly above zero, only one to two months of the temperature below zero, and will not exceed minus 10 degrees, so, in the purchase of antifreeze, as long as the antifreeze calibrated negative 25 degrees can be selected.
3, the southern region, the year-round temperature is relatively high, it is impossible to reach sub-zero temperature, so the generator set on the use of normal soft water cooling can be.
When adding antifreeze users should pay special attention to.
1, choose a suitable antifreeze, so as not to corrode the heat pipe.
2, open the lid in the hot state, first slowly relax the lid, wait for all the steam to be exhausted, before opening the lid to avoid burns.
3, different brands of antifreeze should not be mixed, you must add the antifreeze specified by the manufacturer, otherwise it will start a chemical reaction and corrode the unit.
4、The location of the radiator should be an open and ventilated space, and the dust attached to the radiator should be cleaned regularly.
