The radiator of the car’s stove has very small honeycombs, therefore, with a rare replacement of antifreeze, it becomes clogged with rusty scale. In order not to freeze in winter, install this filter in front of the cabin heater. It will remove all coarse and medium fractions from the antifreeze, thereby preventing the radiator from clogging.
What you need:
- boiler scale filter;
- filter element for the main filter;
- fittings with external thread 1/2 inch – 2 pcs .;
- brass corners external / internal thread 1/2 inch – 2 pcs.
Filter installation process
The filter is installed on the contour of the stove in front of its radiator. If it clogs up, it will not affect the engine cooling system. You need to use a descaling filter for the boiler, since its flask can withstand heating up to 105 ° C.
Instead of its standard cartridge, you need to install a cut-off regular filter element from the main filter.
Brass corners must be screwed into the boiler filter housing. In the latter, fittings of a suitable size are twisted, hoses are pulled on them and tightened with standard clamps.
After starting the circulation of antifreeze, you need to release air from the filter. This is done by loosening the hose clamps.
The filter works 100%.
On the test car, after 50 km, a lot of dross accumulated on the cartridge. For clarity of the experiment, it was replaced, and after another 50 km it was compared with the previous one.
The second filter element for the same mileage is much less dirty. That is, the antifreeze has really become cleaner, which is good for the car’s cooling system as a whole.
