Cross Flow Radiators

March 21, 2014 Ellet Radiator Service

A cross flow radiator is a radiator that has its tanks on the sides of the radiator core. The coolant moves across the core from the right side to the left side. This type of radiator is a good option for cars with a low hood line or a modern smaller car. When you are in the market for cross flow radiators, there is no better place to find them than Ellet Radiator.

Learn How Cross Flow Radiators Work

On a cross flow radiator, the fluid is moved across the core from the right side to the left side. On this type of radiator, the radiator cap can be placed on the low pressure side of the tank. This reduces the pressure on the cap when you are running at high RPMs.

“A stick went into the radiator on our D6 dozer. They came out to the job site and repaired the radiator. Kept our down time to a minimum. Thanks”

Typically, you will find that cross flow radiators come in single pass, double pass, and even triple pass options. This is a great advantage because the fluid can be cooled more than once. You will find that your temperatures run quite a bit lower – even up to twenty degrees lower.

The double and triple pass is possible due to the fact that the radiator separates the fluid that needs to be cooled from the fluid that has already been cooled.

One aspect you need to be aware of with cross flow radiators is size. They are wider than other radiators, so if your car or truck has had any engine modifications, having enough room for the radiator could be an issue, but if you have a vehicle with a low hood line, a cross flow radiator is a great fit.

If you are concerned about getting the most out of your vehicle’s cooling system, the cross flow radiator’s larger size will dissipate more heat therefore making your cooling system even more efficient.
