Another common radiator service is needed when debris builds up inside the radiator. A rod-out repair is a perfect solution when rugged conditions take their toll. This is where a rod is used to free up the radiator tubes from sludge and ensure optimal coolant flow.
After our trusted team has performed a thorough inspection of your cooling system, it may be that the radiator core is too worn for reuse. A radiator recore brings an auto radiator up to original condition, re-using functioning parts in combination with a new core. Cores to fit all radiator sizes are available for both modern aluminium radiator core and vintage copper and brass models.
We are also kind to the environment, as damaged radiators get recycled into scrap metal and repurposed.
All radiators have a thermostatic valve. Yes, both vehicles and stationary cooling systems have one! It needs to function for optimum radiator and engine cooling performance. Why? An engine operates within a fixed range of temperatures, maintained through this radiator valve. It controls the flow of coolant throughout the system to reach and maintain this level of heat.
If radiator valves fail, coolant will either flow at maximum or not at all. The result ranges from inefficient operation to a significantly expensive engine rebuild. As such, our experienced technicians advise annual checks of your coolant system.
