XAS 185 JD RSC overheating and shutting down?

My atlas copco XAS 185 JD RSC compressor keeps overheating and shutting down.

we use it to sand blast and have the machine set at 100 psi. It has worked well for us until recently. Now it runs for five minutes or so then overheats and shuts off.

We found the hose clamp on the radiator was loose and leaking, yet the compressor still shut off after putting coolant in and tightening the clamp (no visible leaks)

I and our service techs are at a loss on this one.
