Cooling System Analyzer
Providing at a Glance a Complete Picture of the Coolant System's Overall Health & Condition.
A water cooled conversion would not be complete without proper
instrumentation. Designed from the ground up, this new cooling
system analyzer not only shows coolant temperature, but also
displays coolant pump output pressure and has three warning
light indicators signaling: low coolant condition, high temperature,
and low pressure and it can be linked to external aural warning
Although our Cool Jugs liquid cooled conversion is designed
to be as reliable as possible we wanted to provide the earliest
possible warning of any potential failure in order to offer
the greatest amount of decision making time possible for a pilot.
The simple matter is that unlike an oil leak - a coolant leak
is virtually invisible and we understand that it isn't practical
to fully de-cowl an engine every time to inspect for
any leaks in pre-flight. Our CoolJugs system is designed to prevent
the possibility of a major leak however, a slightly loose hose
fitting can slowly lose coolant over a long period of time. Our
cooling system analyzer will warn if the system loses as
little as 8floz. of coolant and will provide a clear health check
of the system during runup and in flight.
The gauge is designed to fit in a standard 2.25" instrument
mounting hole. A separate box containing the driving electronics
is mounted in a concealed location behind the instrument panel.
The gauge displays the coolant system temperature and coolant
pump output pressure (corrected for system pressure). In addition
the gauge incorporates warning lights to indicate low coolant
condition (yellow), low pump output pressure (red) and high
system temperature (red). In addition, electrical outputs are
provided for each condition for in order to interface with an
external aural warning system.
Our cooling system analyzer uses methods so unique that it was
awarded US Patent #7,069,883 on July 4th, 2006.
