Be Cool Electric Fans
Be Cool’s high-torque electric fans offer a powerful, consistent cooling airflow regardless of engine RPM. This compares very favorably to an engine-driven fan’s output, which is limited by engine RPM. At slow driving speeds, such as during a cruise or a parade, an engine-driven fan is producing the least airflow when your engine actually needs more cooling air. Be Cool fans not only provide the airflow needed by your cooling system at low speeds but, in most cases, they also allow for the removal of a vehicle’s engine-driven fan which can result in a significant horsepower gain as well as fuel savings.
Pusher fans that are mounted on the top of a radiator core, which is mounted horizontally or flat, will pull the fresh airflow in, and then push the air down through the core exiting out the bottom. Make sure there is ample air space below the radiator (approximately the thickness of the radiator core) to remove the warm air out of the core.
Be Cool Radiator Module Cooling Systems are built with Puller fans unless noted otherwise.
Puller fans mount on the engine side (back) of the radiator core and pull air through the radiator core. The fresh airflow is pulled through the grille, then pulled through the core, and exits out the back side of the radiator. Puller fans are the desired and most common way of mounting a fan when space is not a limitation between the front of the engine and the back of the radiator core.
Pusher fans mount on the grille side (front) of the radiator core and push air through the radiator core. Fresh airflow enters through the grille, then is pushed through the radiator core, and exits out the back side of the radiator. Pusher fans are used typically where there is a limited amount of space for a properly sized puller fan.
Fan Motor HP Ratings
Super Duty Motor - Be Cool has the answer when you need the maximum airflow possible from a single 16” electric fan. The Super Duty motor produces 3,140 cubic feet of airflow per minute (cfm) when mounted against a radiator core. This is the highest-rated CFM available from a through-the-radiator-core 16” electric fan. The Super Duty fan motor requires a high-amp alternator and Be Cool’s 40-amp waterproof relay to produce peak performance and durability.
High-Torque Motor - Be Cool High-Torque fans feature an enhanced motor design that ensures you get the maximum possible fan output from a reduced-depth electric fan while benefitting from fan motor life that is second to none. Be Cool’s most popular through-the-radiator fan offers a tapered protective grate with a sealed, waterproof high-performance electric motor. The High-Performance fan motor also requires a high-amp alternator and Be Cool’s 40-amp waterproof relay to produce peak performance and durability.
Medium Profile Motor - Be Cool’s Medium Profile fans are perfect for when you require industry-leading airflow but don’t have the space required for our more powerful fans. Our Medium Profile fan motor utilizes the same European technology as our High-Torque fans, but packages it into a smaller size with slightly less CFM output. This series of fans provides the maximum airflow possible in a space-saving design.
Thin Line Motor - Be Cool’s Thin Line Fans are ideal where space is a problem. They can be used as a helper fan to enhance the original engine-driven fan’s output, an intercooler fan, or an A/C condenser fan.
