The Impact of Contaminated Coolant on the Cooling System
Posted to Industry Events Forum on 3/10/2016

Hello everyone,

I'll be hosting a free webinar (3 time slots) sponsored by Gates on Tuesday April 19th 2016. The registration links and times are listed below. Seating is limited so I would recommend that you register early.

Dirty coolant has a tremendous impact on today's coolant system and can create premature failures of system components. Mishandling of coolants can force a water pump to fail in as little as 90 days and a heater core in as little as 30 days. This presentation focuses on flushing the coolant system to eliminate sludge and suspended solids.

You will learn:

* About damage created by cross coolant contamination * Why partial coolant replacements should become eliminated * The importance of eliminating suspended solids in the coolant * How to identify ways to eliminate premature failures in the coolant system * Best practices when working on the coolant system

Length of webinar is 45 minutes. Automotive Instructors will receive a certificate and assessment for the class.

Registration Times for Tuesday, April 19th, 2016:

• 8:00am Central = 6:00am Pacific; 7:00am Mountain, 9:00am Eastern • 10:00am Central = 8:00am Pacific, 9:00am Mountain, 11:00am Eastern • 3:00pm Central = 1:00pm Pacific, 2:00pm Mountain, 4:00pm Eastern
