radiators, plural;
  1. A thing that radiates or emits light, heat, or sound

  2. A device for heating a room consisting of a metal case connected by pipes through which hot water is pumped by a central heating system

  3. A portable heater resembling such a device

  4. An engine-cooling device in a motor vehicle or aircraft consisting of a bank of thin tubes in which circulating fluid is cooled by the surrounding air


  1. any object that radiates energy
  2. heater consisting of a series of pipes for circulating steam or hot water to heat rooms or buildings
  3. a mechanism consisting of a metal honeycomb through which hot fluids circulate; heat is transferred from the fluid through the honeycomb to the airstream that is created either by the motion of the vehicle or by a fan
  4. Radiators are heat exchangers used to transfer thermal energy from one medium to another for the purpose of cooling and heating. The majority of radiators are constructed to function in automobiles, buildings, and electronics. ...
  5. Radiator is the second album by the Super Furry Animals. It peaked at #8 on the UK charts. In 2005, it was reissued with a bonus disc of other tracks from the time.
  6. Radiator were a British alternative rock band, formed in 1996 by Jack Cooke, Janne Jarvis and Chris Rose. They released one album, also titled Radiator, which received 4 out of 5 when reviewed by Kerrang! ...
  7. Radiators are used for cooling internal combustion engines, chiefly in automobiles but also in piston-engined aircraft, railway locomotives, motorcycles, stationary generating plant or any similar use of such an engine.
  8. (The Radiators (Australian band)) The Radiators are a rock band from Sydney, Australia, formed in 1978. Their best known songs include "Coming Home", "No Tragedy" and "Gimme Head" (covered in 2004 by Melbourne band, Your Wedding Night)
  9.

  10. Anything which radiates or emits rays; A device that lowers engine coolant temperature by conducting heat to the air, through metal fins; A finned metal fixture that carries hot water or steam in order to heat a room; A type of antenna
  11. (Radiators) Tank extensions used to assist cooling the oil and transformer. Panel type is generally used for better efficiency and appearance.
  12. A heating unit which is supplied heat through a hot water system.
  13. Heating appliance that generates a gentle, enveloping heat from the floor to the ceiling. The continuous, homogenous emission of heat prevents hot-cold sensations. The radiators react rapidly and efficiently to any change in temperature and optimise the energy used.
  14. a heating element, typically metal, used in conjunction with water or steam to give off heat.
  15. A discrete conductor radiating RF energy in an antenna system.
  16. A radiator is a liquid-to-air heat transfer device having a tank(s) and core(s) specifically designed to reduce the temperature of the coolant in an liquid-cooled internal combustion engine. Radiators can be made from aluminum or copper-brass.
  17. A room heat delivery (or exchanger) component of a hydronic (hot water or steam) heating system; hot water or steam is delivered to it by natural convection or by a pump from a boiler.
  18. A heating unit usually exposed to view within the room or space to be heated; it transfers heat by radiation to objects within visible range and by conduction to the surrounding air, which in turn is circulated by natural convection; it is usually fed by steam or hot water. (See Heating Equipment.)
  19. The radiator dissipates the heat from the engine. It holds water in tubes, providing a large area in contact with the atmosphere. There is a core, tubes, a large cooling area, a receiving tank, and a dispensing tank.
  20. Nickname for Hamilton Hall, which looks like a 13-story radiator.
  21. This is the basic element of an antenna (and is often called "the element".) An antenna can be made up of multiple radiators.
  22. A device that cools the liquid in the cooling system by allowing it to circulate through a series of water channels, which are exposed to air ducts. F1 radiators are located in the sidepods just after the air intake holes.
  23. Any source of radiant energy, especially electromagnetic energy.
  24. A device that transfers heat from the liquid coolant to the atmosphere.
  25. The bug catching finny doodle which pumps around the green stuff and makes it cooler coolant, dude
