Danfoss continues to lead the industry with groundbreaking fan drive technologies like our reverse displacement motor (RDM). By occasionally changing the airflow direction, accumulations of debris can be dislodged from the vehicle’s radiator to help ensure efficient cooling system performance.
When used in radiator cooling fan applications, the Danfoss RDM uniquely incorporates the external shift valve within the motor itself, eliminating the directional control valve, and either simplifying or completely eliminating the HIC block. With fewer components in the hydraulic circuit, the RDM frees up space in the engine compartment to create additional opportunities for innovation.
Design advantages like this help combat the challenges brought on by today’s harder-working, hotter-running Tier 4-compliant engines, where emission control equipment takes up more under-hood space than ever before. Building on our proven efficiency and reliability, the compact Danfoss RDM motor is technology that’s helping Danfoss engineer tomorrow.
