What Does a Heat Exchanger Do For a Boat?
Heat exchangers combine seawater and a coolant to keep a marine engine from overheating. The coolant and seawater maximize heat exchanger efficiency to keep the engine running cool and efficiently. The heat exchanger cap helps your engines reduce corrosion and damage to your heat exchanger system.
How to Maintain a Heat Exchanger?
Heat exchangers and caps need to be consistently checked for corrosion, debris, and leakage. If clogged, it can restrict the water flow causing your diesel engine to overheat. OurMAN maintenance experts suggest regularly cleaning the heat exchanger and cap with some acid. Ourmarine rebuild specialists highly recommend scheduling yearlydiesel engine surveys to keep your engine running smoothly. Regular maintenance checkups minimize the need to replace your engine.
