What is dangerous poplar fluff for cars
This attribute late spring can significantly harm your “iron horse”.
Tickles face, sticks to the window, provokes sneezing and coughing? That’s what! Poplar fluff can permanently damage the vehicle!Give some real “horror stories” regarding this elegant and harmless attribute late spring. In the end – a couple of tips on how to avoid orthopedic troubles.
Fluff becomes the reason for engine overhaul. Under certain conditions, it may close the flow of air through the radiators, and the driver learns only when it is too late to do anything except complete disassembly of the engine.
Pooh raised by passing cars off the road, falls into honeycomb heat exchangers. The fine hairs wrap around the tubes and thin plates, they immediately began to gather dust, now can not pass through the radiator. Any moisture triggers the “cementation” and the formation of dense crusts. The radiator is normal – all the same gray, but the heat transfer decreases significantly, according to the portal Autoritet.
Fluff reduces the efficiency of the air conditioner. The pollution of the radiator often goes unnoticed by the driver, but it increases the load on the compressor air cooler, which reduces its life and efficiency of the system as a whole.
Fluff reduces the engine power. If the car traveled in areas with a lot of fluff, air filter will be clogged prematurely. Because of the decrease in the volume of air entering the cylinders, the engine power is reduced.
Fluff impairs the ventilation of the cabin. Scored during the “down” season cabin filter leads to misting in rainy weather, reduces the efficiency of the heater.
It is impossible to clean lint from the radiator with high pressure washer. A jet of water from the machine can damage the delicate aluminum fins of heat exchangers. To direct the jet should be at a right angle and from a greater distance to reduce the pressure on the elements of the radiator. You may have to apply a soft compact (soft!) the brush, reaching for the front surface of the radiator with your hand.
Meanwhile, to prevent the threatening pollution of radiators and filters is easy. If you often have to ride on the roads where poplar fluff especially active, you need to pull the front of the radiator mesh – better than metal, with cells of order 3×3 – 2×2 mm. the smaller the cell, as it significantly reduces capacity for air flow, which significantly deteriorates the heat transfer.
This protection will also cover the radiator from insects, which are also able to close up the radiator, and from the stones which can damage the honeycomb and tube. From time to time the grid will need to remove and clean from contamination.
