Continuous combustion could cause your engine to give up if not for your cooling system - which eliminates about one-third of the heat produced by the engine. Some of the heat is used for other auto processes, but too much of it could lead the engine to break down if the heat is not dissipated.
One of the principal components of the engine's cooling system is the radiator fan, sometimes also called condenser fan or automotive fan. It is a rotating device whose primary function is to dissipate heat. It has a fan motor, a fan blade, and a fan shroud.
The fan motor powers the radiator fan and keeps it running, while the fan blades are the curved propellers that project from the central hub and runs around it to create air. Most fans have four blades but some have as much as eleven. The fan shroud, on the other hand, is a plastic hood that protects the blades. It encloses the fan, and because of that, it can direct air through the core and prevent it from coming back and through the fan again. Thus, cool air is concentrated. The fan shroud must be mounted properly, though, to ensure that it works well. Its durability may be determined by how it responds to vibration while you are on the road.
These parts of the radiator fan are most often made of tough plastic. Considering that the radiator fan plays a central role in the engine's cooling system, it must not be neglected and must be replaced immediately if even a tiny crack appears on one of its blades. Otherwise, heat would accumulate in the engine and cause it to break down.

  • Important Facts You Need to Know About Fan Blade 21 December 2012





    Plastic is cheap. Yet, most cars nowadays use radiator cooling fans that have plastic blades. Sure, these are lightweight, but wait till they start cracking. No matter where you live, changes in air temperature under your hood can have drastic effects on plastic.A fan blade typically goes through extremely hot conditions, sucking heat off the radiator. Soon, the plastic material can harden and become brittle. It won't be long before it develops a crack. A cracked fan won't be able to perform its task well enough to keep your car's engine from overheating.Thus, you may find the water temperature gauge rising above normal. Your fan blade may be fine today, but the time will come. Before the worst happens, you may want to get rid of the plastic blade in exchange for a metal one.At least, your engine will be safe from overheating resulting from blade failure. You can get one easily at Auto Parts Deal.
