Reversing radiator fans

Multi-patented reversing fan solutions clean radiators, contribute to optimal engine cooling, help curtail powertrain inefficiencies, and extend the service life of wheel loaders, skid steers or other rolling stock in high-dust environments. The company presented its signature solution at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020, highlighting:

  • E-Box switches from cooling to cleaning and is time-controlled at 30-minute or other user-defined intervals. An intermediate cleaning can be performed with the press of a button. A protective box with high performance lamella filter secures the component. A compressor triggers and expedites the cooling-to-cleaning cycle.
  • Pneumatic actuation takes place via the vehicle’s compressed air system, an intermediate valve, or the Cleanfix compressor.
  • Hydraulic actuation is facilitated by an interposed valve and taps the vehicle’s power supply. — Cleanfix North America Inc., Stratford, Ontario; 519/275-2808; www.cleanfix.org
