Fourteen peer-reviewed papers present the latest research in modern engine coolant formulating.
International coolant development
Field testing of coolant additives
Engine coolant recycling
Engine component and coolant additive compatibility
Alternate coolant base technology
Extended life oxidation and thermal stability
New testing methods of cavitation, erosion, and localized corrosion
The advances in coolant system components and construction continue to impact the modern automotive, heavy-duty, locomotive and free standing engine design and performance. The expanding use of lighter metals, advances in nonmetallics, changes in fluid control technologies and coolant filtration in today’s engines, plus advancing discoveries in EGR and fuel cell technologies in engines of the future are a few of the challenges facing the experts in engine coolant formulating.
