When you talk about 4WD heat exchanger hot water camping showers,
everyone knows about GLIND.
We don’t have to make outrageous
claims about our heat exchangers,
because……well, everyone knows they’re the best.
Don’t be fooled by imitations.
Did you know that some heat exchangers on the market are prone to corrosion, or require sacrifical anodes to stop corrosion of your engine and your heat exchanger simply because of the material they are made from? GLIND heat exchangers are made from a co-polymer glass filled nylon 66, the same material used to make the top and bottom radiator tanks, so due to the much lower surface area of copper, corrosion problems are non existant and annodes are not required. Buy quality, buy Glind.
All GLIND heat exchanger with 1/2″ barbed fittings on both the inlet and outlet fresh water ports. Simply radiator clamp 1/2″ hose in and out for ease of use. For compatibility and ease of use, the engine coolant side is 5/8″ barb which is the most common heater hose size. This allows the heat exchanger to be placed in line or hidden so that the outlet of the fresh water delivery hose can be run straight to a shower, sink, or to an external shower connector fitting at the front or rear of a vehicle.
The Glind heat exchanger as it sits on the mount bracket, measures 335 mm long and is 105 mm high. Remember to add a little on each end to accommodate for hoses. The beauty of this heat exchanger is that it can be mounted horizontally or vertically so fitting becomes simpler. If you need a tight hose bend on the ends, use the pre-moulded heater hose, also available from Glind.
In many modern vehicles, the engine rpm must be lifted to approx 1500 rpm in order to get sufficient coolant flow, and while this may not be necessary in the warmer months, it is essential in the cooler months.
Heat exchangers need 2 things, heat and flow. The heat is governed by the thermostat rating and the flow is determined by engine rpm. More rpm = more flow =more heat transfer.
The modern engines of all sizes, have to meet global emission laws, and as such, coolant is diverted to accommodate this, for example, turbo’s, intercoolers, transmission coolers, EGR’s and DPF’s and as such, the coolant flow is reduced. But this is overcome by lifting engine rpm and it pumps extra amps into the battery system.
If you recirculate and pre-heat the water from a 20 l drum, this system will provide 2 really good showers. Simply wet yourself down, then shut the pump off by shutting off the Glind shower rose, then soap yourself up, then re-activate the pump by opening the flow control on the shower rose and rinse off. Too easy.
The Glind heat exchangers are sealed units, so the brass fittings CANNOT be changed or altered.
Comes with the standard mount plate, spacers, nuts and bolts, so it is ready to fit.
