MARSHALL, Mich. — BorgWarner is introducing the new K26RA Fail Safe On-Off Fan Clutch.
According to BorgWarner, this fan clutch offers a 25 per cent increase in torque over its predecessor, the K22RA.
The design of the new K26RA was driven by the need to provide additional airflow for the 2002 emission engines.
Even if the fan clutch fails completely, the vehicle can make it to a service facility without overheating the engine, the company says. With the K26RA from BorgWarner Cooling Systems, the fan continues to rotate even if the clutch stops working. However, with proper maintenance, a million miles of trouble-free service under normal operating conditions may be expected.
