Bridgestone debuted the 59/80R63 VRF tire with Cooling Fin
technology at MINExpo.
The cold side of the TE modules was adhered to a cooling fin
assembly by a high-conductivity thermal paste.
The cooling system has a uniquely designed aluminium cooling fin
, called a dimpled wave fin.
The cooling fin
extrusion comes in variable height increments, and the fins do not need to be modified for mounting.
The Cooling Fin
technology expands the vehicle application potential of runflat tires.
Available in AISI stainless steel with stainless steel actuator the RC 200 valves with cooling fin
bonnets are designed for handling liquids and gases at operating temperatures up to 560[degrees]C with PTFE packing and higher temperatures with Grafoil packing.
The WA500-7 provides easy service access, increased cooling capacity, wider cooling fin
spacing, and a standard auto-reversing fan to help keep the radiator clean.
The circular air cooling fin
assembly (Fig 5), consisting of fins (29) and spacing rings (30) is attached by swaging the thickened portion of the fins (29a) to the barrel, .
Bridgestone has developed new Cooling Fin
technology that expands the vehicle application potential of runflat tires.
Bridgestone 59/80R63 VRF Tire with Cooling Fin
technology: The Bridgestone 59/80R63 VRF tire with Cooling Fin
technology offers up to a 10 percent increase in wear life over its predecessor, the Bridgestone VRF.
For example, according to Gianluigi Mengoli, director of R&D, there is a rotational casting process used in order to get an additional cooling fin
for the head.
