Abstract:

The objective of this study is to evaluate two prototype long-life coolant systems in actual vehicle tests. The systems utilize an electronic coolant condition sensor in conjunction with either the newly developed MIL-A-53009 Extender Additive or a commercial spin-on filterconditioner unit. Both systems were started with an antifreeze with a partially depleted inhibitor system. Results show that, to date, there has been no apparent depletion of the additive systems in either vehicle, and the sensors are functioning properly. Author
