Volvo Penta thermostat kit is an extremely important component in the cooling system of Volvo Penta engines. This component aids in faster and more stable engine operation, in addition, it helps to keep the engine operating temperature at a suitable level for multi-purpose use. To learn more about Volvo Penta thermostat TTTT, invites customers to see the article below.
Basic information about Volvo Penta thermostat
Functions of the Volvo thermostat
The main function of Volvo thermostat is to close the water or oil transmission line to the cooling water tank when the engine system’s temperature is still below the specified level and open the valve to allow the coolant or oil to reach the radiator. cool when the engine system temperature is excessively high. Thanks to that function, the Volvo valve makes the engine system can start quickly to increase the working temperature, stabilize the temperature, ensure economy and avoid polluting the environment in the early stages of operation. working body.
Structure and working principle of thermostat Volvo Penta
- The thermostat Volvo Penta is installed on the water line from the engine cover to the cooler
- The working medium is a solid paraffin particle contained in the cylinder of the valve
- On cylinders with a vane mounted, the recoil spring always forces the valve to close.
Basic working principle of Volvo Penta thermostat kit
At normal temperature, the return spring pushes the cylinder carrying the Volvo Penta thermostat kit to make the valve close, water does not pass through the thermostat. When the engine temperature reaches working temperature, the Parapin expands to overcome the spring resistance to push the cylinder down to open the valve and open the water line from the engine to the cooling tank (the tank usually records the valve opening temperature value of about approx 52-90 degrees Celsius or higher)

Damage and notes when using the thermostat Volvo Penta
Common damages of the thermostat Volvo Penta
The Volvo thermostat’s body elasticity and valve vane structure work poorly, due to the leakage of the contents in the body of the thermostat Volvo Penta, resulting in the valve not opening or opening enough to cause the engine to heat up when the engine is working at full capacity. There are cases when the valve does not close when the water temperature is still low, causing the engine to run for a long time to reach the working temperature, increasing environmental pollution and consuming a lot of fuel.
When you do Volvo Penta thermostat replacement or use, please note
Absolutely do not let the Volvo engine work when the thermostatic valve of the excavator, generator, Volvo construction machine, … is damaged because the harm that occurs is serious. The function of the cooling system on an internal combustion engine is: to quickly warm up the engine and keep the engine’s working temperature stable at the optimal value (85-95 degrees Celsius). Cooling is just one function of Volvo Penta spare parts system. The thermostat helps to quickly warm up that engine, removing it will lose this function.
