With a low engine load, the head wind often suffices to dissipate the waste heat from radiator and engine. Therefore, a low fan speed or even zero fan speed is sufficient for cooling.
With rising temperature in the engine compartment and with decreasing speed, there is an increasing risk of overheating and heat accumulation in the engine or vehicle. This is the case when driving up hills, for example, or in stop-and-go traffic. This is when the SACHS fan clutch for passenger cars is activated, thereby allowing sufficient air to flow through the radiator. This engine cooling system is fast and effective.
For more than 30 years, SACHS has been providing intelligent car fan clutches and LCV fan clutches for nearly every vehicle model. Due to their high quality and durability, service-oriented workshops choose fan clutches from SACHS when replacing a fan clutch.
