Diesel Locomotives and Trains
Our professional services also extend to trains and diesel locomotives. High-horsepower locomotives generate a lot of power and heat. Left uncontrolled, locomotive engine heat can damage engine parts. This shortens the life of the engine and its components.
An effective radiator system is vital to keep the engine at its optimum operating temperature, regardless of whether it’s running in flat land or mountains, or in hot or cold temperatures. The locomotive radiator system cools water, air and oil. The water is used for cooling the engine and turbo. The air is used in the combustion process. The oil is used for lubricating the engine’s components.
The locomotive’s radiator system must keep the engine operating at a constant temperature, regardless of the conditions. This enables maximum horsepower at all times, extending the life of the engine.
