Demonstrate Engine Overheating with our Engine Check Label
Engines are the heart of any vehicle, and overheating can cause serious damage to the engine and other components. Overheating occurs when the engine's cooling system fails to dissipate the excess heat produced during operation.
If overheating is a concern, we recommend you check out our Engine Check warranty temperature indicator labels.
They're widely used in the automotive sector as part of warranty procedures for new & remanufactured engine blocks and we ship them all over the world.
This automotive temperature indicator label reacts with a permanent, one-way colour change when specific temperatures are reached or exceeded. Designed for use on core plugs, freeze plugs, expansion plugs and welch plugs.
Here are some of the primary reasons why our customers are documenting when overheating of engines has taken place. Our irreversible colour change temperature indicators can be used in conjunction with warranty claim inspections to show when proper maintenance procedures have not been followed:
Engine damage: Overheating can cause serious damage to the engine, such as warped cylinder heads, cracked engine blocks, and damaged pistons. These repairs can be costly and time-consuming, and in some cases, the engine may need to be replaced.
Reduced fuel efficiency: Overheating can also reduce fuel efficiency. When an engine overheats, it has to work harder to operate, using more fuel to produce the same amount of power. This can increase the cost of operating the vehicle.
Increased emissions: Overheating can also increase emissions. When an engine is operating at a higher temperature, it produces more harmful emissions, which can negatively impact the environment.
Safety concerns: Overheating can also cause safety concerns. An overheated engine can cause the vehicle to stall or stop suddenly, potentially causing an accident. It can also cause damage to other components, such as the brakes or transmission, which can also affect the safety of the vehicle.
Reduced engine lifespan: Overheating can significantly reduce the lifespan of the engine. The high temperatures and stresses placed on the engine can cause premature wear and tear, reducing its durability and longevity.
In conclusion, it is essential to avoid letting engines overheat. By doing so, you can prevent engine damage, reduce fuel efficiency, reduce emissions, avoid safety concerns, and extend the engine's lifespan. Regular maintenance, such as checking and topping up coolant levels, replacing worn hoses or belts, and cleaning the radiator, can help to prevent overheating and ensure that your vehicle runs smoothly and efficiently.
If you are a car manufacturer or an engine remanufacturer, and concerned about warranty claims due to engine overheating, why not use our Engine Check labels to provide proof of excessive engine temperatures. We have a stock range and they can also be customised to your requirements from a range of sizes, colours and temperatures. In stock now with worldwide shipping available.
