100% Leak Tested
Ready to install out of the box
Design features like the reinforced B-Tube for better rigidity, reduced chance of leaks
Aluminum oil coolers for increased heat transfer to improve oil cooler efficiency
Plastic tanks are cast with ribbing inside or out for added strength
Service Tip: If you are experiencing unexplained or reoccurring radiator core leaks, or notice dark spots on your failed radiator core, test your coolant for Electrolysis. If detected, correct the source of the problem before replacing your failed radiator to prevent repeat failure.
APDI's Testing Process
APDI's products are validated through a series of tests which are all completed in-house in their testing lab.
Thermal Cycle Testing - Verify radiators ability to withstand the effects of thermostat opening in cold ambient conditions
Pressure Cycle Testing - Demonstrates robustness to concurrent pressure cycling and vibration
Salt Water Acidified Acceleration (SWAAT) - Measures corrosion resistance
Heat Transfer Testing - Validates radiator efficiency
Leak Test - Identify any coolant circuit leaks
Burst Pressure Test - Determines the maximum internal pressure before fin collapse and leakage occurs
Cooling System Maintenance | Tips & Tools
Without regular maintenance, cooling system components will degrade and fail prematurely, which can lead to costly engine damage. Protect your engine with simple preventative maintenance:
Completely drain and flush the system using Cooling System Flush prior to installation. Flushing the system is critical to prevent system contamination and failure.
Consider replacing the Radiator Hoses (and Hose Clamps), Thermostat and Radiator Cap as part of routine preventative maintenance. System contamination can cause these parts to degrade and fail over time, which can lead to severe engine damage from overheating.
Refill radiator with fresh Coolant / Antifreeze according to the volume and formula specified in your Owner's Manual. Inspect levels and condition every year.
