n.
An agent that produces cooling, especially a fluid that draws off heat by circulating through an engine or by bathing a mechanical part.

coolant

(ˈkuːlənt)
n
1. (Mechanical Engineering) a fluid used to cool a system or to transfer heat from one part of it to another
2. (Mechanical Engineering) a liquid, such as an emulsion of oil, water, and soft soap, used to lubricate and cool the workpiece and cutting tool during machining
