Upgrade your vehicle cooling system online at low cost
The main function of a cooling system is to eliminate the heat generated by the engine. This is because the built-up heat can cause major damage to the vehicle and engine. A radiator prevents this. A distinction is made between two types of cooling - air cooling and liquid cooling. The systems must not fail in any season and at any temperature. In winter, the cooling system must not freeze and in summer, it must be cooled down to the target temperature despite the high outside temperatures. At QP24 you will find all parts on the subject of cooling. Look now for the solution to your problem.

Structure of the air cooling
This type of cooling was used a lot in the past. Its advantages are mainly the favourable construction and the uncomplicated and rare maintenance. In addition, the lack of coolant is a big plus, because it often causes problems. Nevertheless, the disadvantages of air cooling outweigh the advantages, so modern solutions have been invented. Disadvantages are on the one hand the noise that the cooler produces by the swirling air. On the other hand the restriction of the engine power by the cooling fan, which needs power and by a varying air flow behaviour. Characteristic for air cooling are metal fins around cylinder and cylinder head, which support the heat conduction. The larger surface area allows heat dissipation. The heat is normally transferred to the crankcase and lubricating oil and then absorbed by ambient air.
Modern liquid cooling
This type of cooling works with a coolant that protects against minus temperatures and corrosion. Unlike air cooling, this method provides even cooling of the entire engine. The engine performance is increased and not reduced and engine damage is avoided. Other differences are also the sound insulation and not its amplification and the possibility to use the cooler for heating. A water cooler is a more complex system and consists of many components, therefore it is more expensive. Running it with liquid causes several defects. Leakage, freezing, corrosion lead to frequent checks and in the worst case replacement.
