A radiator is a exchanger hot . It is an element that allows dissipate the heat of something , either to prevent overheating or to take advantage of it in the heating of a place.
The radiators can work for radiation and by convention . What these devices do is receive or give up heat, depending on their function and the difference in temperature between the means of exchange.
In the explosion engines used by cars and other machines, the radiator is used to remove heat from the coolant , giving it to air . Their operation is very important since, while they are on, these engines produce a lot of heat that is essential to dissipate.
The radiator, in this frame, is part of the circuit liquid cooling vehicle. In order to enhance the effect of convection, a fan With thermostat and equipped with a small motor it favors the circulation of air through the device.
The computers (computers ), on the other hand, have radiators coupled to fans to dissipate the heat generated in the circuits, thus preventing damage to the electronic components. These radiators, known as heatsinks , enable the cooling of the microprocessor.
As an apparatus for heating, finally, the radiator is an apparatus that contemplates the circulation of a hot liquid inside to radiate heat to the environment . It may have tubes, fins or panels to emit such heat. Usually, this resource is used in the development of a system centralized heating .
