Cartek will be showcasing new versions of its unique coolant level sensor products, which now incorporate a water temperature sensor along with the original air-in-water detection functionality, at the 2015 Professional MotorSport World Expo. The self-contained, aluminium units are simply installed in the upper hose of a coolant system to monitor for the presence of air. Cartek’s coolant sensors are designed in such a way that small air bubbles do not trigger the sensor. The sensors only alert the driver, and/or ECUs and dataloggers, when the water level within the cooling system drops dangerously low, which can happen when a radiator is punctured or a hose becomes loose, but is often not noticed by the driver until it is too late, resulting in engine damage.
With the addition of a temperature sensor, this neat and compact product now offers two important functions instead of just one. The original coolant level sensors were developed by Cartek in 2011 and have found application in all areas of motorsport, with the latest demand coming from all Cosworth Duratec powered cars competing in Uruguay’s Superturismo championship.
