Actually, when the liquids were first being built, they used a variety of radiator types.The heat exchanger that was cooled by the snow was the most efficient. Some used a automotive type radiator that was cooled by the air going through it. If you sat too long, it would heat up as there was no fan to move the air when stationary. Also, the radiator type was vulnerable to getting punctured by branches and other debris and would also clog when in deep powder.
