All Iveco Stralis radiators from NRF are now upgraded to prevent premature failure.
1) An Easy Fit kit comes with every radiator for flexible mounting the radiator on the Intercooler.
It allows you to reduce the movement between radiator and intercooler due to the different thermal expansion of the two units.
2) The radiator core of the NRF radiators has an increased core thickness of 48mm against the original 42mm. This increases mechanical strength of the radiator.
Because we at NRF are so convinced about the quality of this improved product we have started to run a test under real conditions on a Iveco Stralis.
See below our findings so far!
MONITORING TEST ON IVECO STRALIS RADIATOR (509698 NRF product thickness 48mm) + INTERCOOLER (309272)
FITTING DATE: 15/05/2014
VEHICLE: IVECO STRALIS 560 YEAR 2009
KM COVERED : 396,000NOTE: The above vehicle mainly cover the distance NAPOLI-MILAN and delivers recycled material.
KM COVERED: 421.000
NOTE: The driver of the vehicle stated that it had found errors in the temperature while traveling. The medium was further tested at full load and uphill with an outside temperature of about 33° Celsius reaching a temperature of the liquid equal to 89° Celsius verified through the temperature measurer. There is no problem of wear or problems related to vibration.
KM COVERED: 433.000
NOTE: the vehicle was further tested at full load and uphill with an outside temperature of about 31° Celsius reaching a temperature of the liquid equal to 89° Celsius verified through the temperature measurer. There is no problem of wear or problems related to vibration.
KM COVERED: 542.000
NOTE: the vehicle was tested on the road at full load, there is no temperature problem and there is no problem of wear or problems related to vibration.
GENERAL NOTES: At present, and based on the results of the checks carried out, it can be concluded that the products in question showed an excellent thermal exchange and good resistance to wear and vibration.
