Heavy Duty cooling system repair requires properly identifying fittings. It is recommended to test certain heat exchangers with high pressure nitrogen. In order to test at 300 psi, it is necessary to have fittings that will seal the cooler's original fitting set up. Identifying the fitting that will be needed for testing will be covered in this webinar.
How can you get verifiable DPF cleanings regardless of the brand of machine you’re using? During this session led by DES Engineering & UL Shop Manager Russ Tuckerman, you’ll learn the best steps to have a repeatable DPF cleaning program no matter what type of brand of cleaning equipment you have.
Very often plastic tank failures can be related to poor designs or a very strenuous application that causes premature failure or the new radiator and parts are not available for servicing your customer’s needs. Whether you have an aluminum or copper and brass radiator core, tank fabrication practices are the same. During this presentation, you will learn some ideas on how to convert a plastic tank radiator to all-metal.
The discussion continues in Part 2 of Aftertreatment 101 where you will learn more about engine maintenance in relationship DPF maintenance and failures. Why is it important to be proactive? Attendees will also dive into cleaning machines types and why there is no one size fits all.
In Part 2 "Measure that Radiator Core Error Free!", we explore how to properly count fins per inch in serpentine and flat fin radiator cores. Attendees will also learn the method for counting tubes in a radiator core without actually counting each tube and a continuation of ordering the correct headers either for a solder together or bolt together application. At the end of this session, you should be armed with the necessary information for ordering radiator cores correctly.
When ordering cores, mistakes can cost the service shop, the manufacturer, and the customer time and money. Learn how to do it correctly the first time with NARSA/IDEA! Executive Director Mark Taylor will explain the ins and outs of radiator core measuring along with proper terminology.
How do aftertreatment systems work? In Part 1 of "Aftertreatment 101," this class led by Diesel Emissions Service Lead Trainer Steven "Jr" Stratton will cover the entire aftertreatment system, including the reason why it exists and what needs to be done for maintenance to keep it working correctly.
Get an in-depth view of regeneration system components and operation. Additionally, you’ll learn the importance of running a regeneration for diagnostic purposes, and the powerful insight that it gives you for diagnosing failed components without the need for a fault code.
Also known as a one-tank rod out, this process could be performed if the radiator is running hot and you have to rod the tubes out to restore heat transfer, if a seam is leaking where the tank is soldered into the header, or you have a tube to header leak. The Affton Radiator team will deconstruct this process and explain the benefits of using this method.
For radiator repair facilities that do not manufacture new radiator cores, this process can be used to help speed up the downtime for customers’ machines or equipment or reduce cost to the overall life of the radiator assembly. This is an art form process that is performed to completely rebuild the original conventional radiator core that comes through a radiator repair facility. The team at Affton Radiator (Fenton, Missouri) explain the process step-by-step.
