Fan Clutches – Borg Warner Kysor Fan Clutch

The Fan Clutch is an imperative piece of your vehicle which controls the vehicular emissions. Its main role is to decrease harmful air by changing unsafe contaminations into less destructive emissions, for example, water, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen.


How Does a Fan Clutch Work?

An ordinary fan clutch depends on sensors to recognize temperature. An uncommon sort of oil is contained inside its repository and permitted to stream out of the supply through a gap when the temperature arrives at its trigger point. As the oil goes into the chamber it triggers a shaft that makes the fan pivot. On the other hand, when the temperature decreases past the trigger point, the valve permitting the oil to enter will close and the rest of the oil in the chamber will release through centrifugal force to the reservoir. As this occurs, the rotor will deactivate, and the fan will stop. Without this activity, the fan would be simply connected with the driving belt consistently and would provide cooling when not required.

How Is a Fan Clutch Made?

Fan clutches are made from extremely strong materials intended to withstand vibration and high temperatures. At the front is a bimetallic temperature sensor and underneath the external cover is a slide valve, chamber, and rotor. The back side of the case forms a closure and mounts to a pulley shaft that is attached with the driving belt.
