Down Flow Radiators

March 21, 2014 Ellet Radiator Service

Radiators come in different formations. One of the most popular types of radiators is the down flow radiators. How the radiator is configured will impact the movement of the coolant as well as rigidity in mounting, and finally, the plumbing methods involved. There are times that a down flow radiator is the right choice for you, and Ellet Radiator is the right place to find it.

Learn When Down Flow Radiators are the Right Choice

If you have an older car, it is quite possible that you already have a down flow radiator. When it is time to replace it or change from a cross flow to a down flow, there are several things you need to know.

If you have a truck or a car with a low hood profile, a down flow radiator is the right fit for you. This type of radiator tends to be tall and thin. This allows more surface space which provides for better cooling. The smaller the surface space, the less cooling is provided by the radiator.

Ellet Radiator Service

“I brought my Frieghtliner to their shop for a radiator. They pulled the radiator, recored it and put it back in all in the same day. Thanks for the great service.”

A second consideration when deciding on a down flow radiator is how you drive your car or truck. A lot of hard, fast driving can reduce your cooling potential. This is due to the fact that in a down flow radiator, the end tank is on the bottom and the top with the cap being on the top.

When RPMs are the highest, the water pump is pushing more fluid at one time and your coolant is very hot. This means the bypass valve will open sooner with a result in decreased cooling effectiveness.

Ultimately, and most importantly, it is the space you have available to install your radiator that makes the most difference. If a down flow radiator gives you the most surface space, then it is the right radiator for you.
