what we are doing now on
choose your make of Truck radiator make
radiators are the most common rebuilt item that comes through our workshop due
to the road conditions of today causing a lot of premature failure of many items
just like the radiator, intercooler and condenser. This is mainly caused by vibration,
rubber supports, mounts wearing and cracking not to mention the horse power of
today's trucks and the load rating they carry takes its toll on items such as
the radiator and the intercooler which are both constantly going from hot to cold
all the time.
What this causes is thermal expansion in the join between two
joint materials to what we call tube to headers causing either loss of coolant
or loss of air.
cooling system repairs.
Hi-Tech Radiators are more
then capable of repairing these problems but are not a guaranteed repair. Normally
we do just enough too allow the customer time to keep running his truck until
they are able too afford a new more improved Hi-Tech replacement, then we can
supply with all the improvements needed to handle today's working conditions here
With over 130 part numbers & growing. We can turn around
a Charge air cooler replacement within the day with ease with a network of shops
& freight to get to & from your workshop.
Other reoccurring problems
in trucks is cracking of plastic top tanks know more commonly to happen to late
models that come out as original equipment with plastic top and bottom tanks with
an aluminium core.
This is mainly done because those two materials are cheaper
then copper and brass also far more lighter giving them allowance for more trailer
load capacity. When a plastic top tank cracks and the rest of the core is still
ok we then give you the customer a couple of options other then just replacing
the complete radiator that can become quiet costly at times.
Alloy side tank added to this radiator.
These options consist
1. Fabricate a new brass or
alloy tank to suit the core depending on what material the core is made out of
in thicker enough material then is manually folded and tig welded around the out
side of the tank then brazed on the inside's for extra support and strength. (
shown in picture left)
2. Fabricate both the top and the bottom tanks to suit
core. This will only be done if one of Hi-Techs experienced staff members believes
they may be any issues in the near future with the bottom tank cracking as well.
Normally this does not happen because the temperature hits inlet tank or better
know as the top tank, even if it is a cross flow or a vertical flow fast at about
20 - 30 degrees hotter then the bottom/outlet tank allowing the heat in the water
to decay and harden the plastic as the top. The way we can tell if a tank is close
to cracking is looking for slight fractures in the plastic, discolouration of
tank or once the tank has been removed from the core and is found too be very
hard when you squeeze it. That's when we replace both tanks.
3. Another option
replace top and bottom tanks with the core to suit this will give you the customer
a good warranty and peace of mind knowing that your truck radiator has been fully
replaced, using thicker more robust materials made from Australian companies that
know and understands Australia s climate and road conditions.
that can occur on trucks is header tanks or better know as overflow bottles cracking
or corroding weather they are made out of alloy, plastic or steel. Hi-Tech Radiators
can either repair or remanufacture a new tank out of stronger more robust material.
