If Cooling System Conditioner additions are not made every 250 service hours as recommended, the drain period must be reduced to every 2000 service hours or 1 year.Filling at over 20 liters (5 U.S. gallons) per minute can cause air pockets in the cooling system.After draining and refilling the cooling system, run the engine with the filler cap off until the coolant reaches normal operating temperature and the coolant level stabilizes. Add coolant as necessary to fill the system to the proper level.Operate with a thermostat in the cooling system all year-round. Cooling system problems can arise without a thermostat.Water
Hard water, or water with high levels of calcium and magnesium ions, encourages the formation of insoluble chemical compounds by combining with cooling system additives such as silicates and phosphates.The tendency of silicates and phosphates to precipitate out-of-solution increases with increasing water hardness. Hard water, or water with high levels of calcium and magnesium ions encourages the formation of insoluble chemicals, especially after a number of heating and cooling cycles. Caterpillar prefers the use of distilled water or deionized water to reduce the potential and severity of chemical insolubility. Using water that meets this requirement may not prevent drop out of these chemical compounds totally but should minimize the rate to acceptable levels.For more information refer to "Know Your Cooling System" Form SEBD0518.Antifreeze (Use Caterpillar Antifreeze or equivalent)
Most commercial antifreezes are formulated for gasoline engine applications and will, therefore, have high silicate content. Caterpillar antifreeze is formulated with the proper coolant additives for heavy duty diesel engines. Caterpillar Antifreeze (Part No. 8C3686) is available through Caterpillar dealers.The major advantages of Caterpillar antifreeze are:
* Significantly reduces water pump seal leakage problems due to the over concentration of chemical additives.* There is no need to add coolant inhibitor on initial fill which must be done with current commercially available antifreezes.High silicate antifreezes used with a supplemental coolant conditioner can cause a buildup of solids over a period of time which can cause plugging, loss of heat transfer, and water pump seal damage. * Make proper antifreeze additions.Adding pure antifreeze as a makeup solution for cooling system top-off is an unacceptable practice. It increases the concentration of antifreeze in the cooling system which increases the concentration of dissolved solids and undissolved chemical inhibitors in the cooling system. Add antifreeze mixed with water to the same freeze protection as your cooling system. * Use lesser amounts of antifreeze.The reason for the use of ethylene glycol antifreeze is strictly for freeze protection. Use only the amount of antifreeze necessary for the environmental temperature. If operating in warm climates [above 0°C (32°F)], use of plain water treated with a supplemental coolant inhibitor package is sufficient to protect the engine against corrosion and pitting.Caterpillar recommends the use of a coolant mix containing a minimum of 30% Caterpillar Antifreeze and acceptable water. This 30% mixture is necessary to maintain an adequate water pump cavitation temperature for efficient water pump performance. Only use a greater concentration (above 30%)
