BGR Radiators

The annual Power-Gen International show was held this year at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando Florida from November 12 – 14. BGR Radiator unveiled its new line of vertical remote radiators and horizontal remote radiators at the show. Our BGR Radiator booth generated a lot of activity and our BGR Radiator engineers were busy during the entire show discussing the new line of vertical remote radiators and horizontal remote radiators. Booth visitors were interested not only in the efficiency of the line but also in the the protective coatings available to withstand harsh corrosive conditions. Visitors were also interested to learn that the new line of BGR Radiator’s vertical remote radiators and horizontal remote radiators are both available in direct drive and belt drive versions and that they are constructed from heavy-duty 3/16” steel. Call (800) 774-2168 and talk to our engineers about BGR Radiator’s new line of vertical remote radiators and horizontal remote radiators.

BASIC FUNCTIONS OF A HEAVY DUTY TRUCK RADIATOR

The moving parts inside a heavy duty truck engine block produce friction, and friction produces heat. Unless abated, that heat will cause problems for the heavy duty truck parts inside (and outside) the block. The engine will overheat and parts will seize. read more

HEAVY DUTY TRUCK RADIATOR CORE CONSTRUCTION

1995 Ford F series heavy duty truck used by UPS

Class 6, 7 and 8 heavy-duty truck radiator cores are composed of headers, fins and tubes which are subject to a variety of punishing over the road conditions. There’s the constant barrage of debris and other larger objects, jolts from irregular road surfaces and the endless flow of air through the body of the core. The relentless airflow around radiator tubes manufactured from inferior and thinner gauge materials will cause the tubes to erode quicker than those manufactured with heavier gauge, better quality materials. That erosion will eventually cause tube punctures and leaks. Heavier gauge fin material will decrease the possibility of fin tearing which causes reduced fin surface, loss of heat transfer and over-heating.

COPPER VS ALUMINUM HEAVY DUTY TRUCK RADIATORS

Cooper and Aluminum Radiator cores

Copper radiator or an aluminum radiator for my over-the-road heavy-duty truck? Copper transfers heat better than aluminum. But aluminum is cheaper. Copper radiators are easier to repair. But aluminum weighs less. The debate continues. It’s generally agreed that copper fin, brass tube radiators last longer than aluminum radiators, especially in heavy-duty, over the road truck applications.

HEAVY DUTY TRUCK CHARGE AIR COOLERS

Heavy Duty Charge Air Coolers

Although charge air coolers (cac’s) are now being used in high performance cars such as BMW’s and Audis, they have been used in over-the-road heavy-duty trucks since the 1970’s.

Considering that temperatures in an in-service cac reach 500 F and the harsh impaction and vibration which they endure, it’s no wonder they need servicing, re-coring or replacement. The most common problems with cac’s are cracks in the tubes or in the tube/header joints. As the truck moves over the road the cracks get bigger and pressure and performance are lost and fuel efficiency decreases. Heavy duty truck operators should have their cac’s regularly tested and inspected.
