How Does a Radiator Cooling Fan Work?

A vehicle is made with a vast cooling system, and these radiator cooling fans are just components. For these cooling fans to function well, all the rest of the elements like the thermostat of the car’s cooling system should be effectively operational.

Radiator cooling fans are usually electric power driven and are typically positioned between the vehicle’s engine and its radiator.  Those fans which are located in front part of the radiator are called pusher fans. Puller pans are what we call those that are found at the radiator’s rear.

The pusher fans are responsible for blowing air to the radiator’s grill blowing away heat, while puller fans sucks in cool air through those grills. These fans are run by the thermostat in the vehicle’s cooling system. Cooling of the engine to avoid over-heating is initiated when the heat attains the predetermined temperature. The fan ceases to blow when the heat in the engine drops below the fixed temperature.

Whether electric-powered, engine-driven or flex fans which are constructed from stainless steels, these radiator cooling fans which are crafted with 4 to 6 blades have the same functions. Their basic role is to substitute or control heat moving around the car’s engine.

When the car is on the go, heat is generated. The cooling fans drive away that type of heat so that the engine does not overheat. They are designed with blades that rotate swiftly to supply the needed cooler air to the engine because overheating will compromise the mechanism’s performance.
