As a rule, a car radiator is paired with a cooling fan that blows air through the radiator to perform one of the most crucial tasks, and it is to cool the engine. The fan increases the air mass that flows through the radiator core and thus prevents the engine heat from destroying the radiator itself, as well as seals, gaskets, hoses, etc. Belt-driven and electric fans are two general types of cooling fan systems. The first type relies on mechanical energy and uses pulleys to turn the blades. It rotates slower compared to the electric contestant, however, it is longer-lasting. It’s also easy to maintain and repair. And if you’re looking to equip your vehicle with a belt-driven fan, you’ve come to the right place!
Have you ever asked yourself a question like ‘Do I have the right fan for my cooling needs?’ If so, then you probably have some serious problems with your cooling fan and need a highly efficient replacement. The Flex-a-lite fan is a perfect way to go to stay always cool. There’s a lot of pride and care that goes into every Flex-a-lite product, including belt-driven fans. The fan is designed to be inexpensive and lightweight, yet still providing maximum cooling. And because it puts less stress on your water pump bearings, it helps to extend the lifespan of your pump. Also, don’t forget that the Flex-a-lite fan is backed by an unbeatable one-year warranty that will give you the confidence you deserve.56.39Brand: Flex-a-lite Part Number: 1817 UPC: 088657018173
Flex-a-lite is a third-generation business that has been in the automotive industry for over half a century. In 1962, Eddy Davis, who was an Army Air Corps pilot in England during the Second World War, set up Flex-a-lite with the original ‘flex fan’ concept. The company is currently based in Fife, Washington, and run by Lisa Chissus, Eddy’s granddaughter. Lisa is the one who invented the now patented Flex-a-fit radiator sidetank design that provides superior heat transfer. Though Flex-a-lite continues to look for innovative performance cooling solutions, one thing that hasn't changed since the company's foundation is that all products are still engineered and manufactured in the USA, with American hands.
