KEEP YOUR CAR’S COOLING SYSTEM FUNCTIONING EFFECTIVELY
The radiator is the key component of your vehicle’s cooling system. Without a properly-functioning radiator, your vehicle is going to overheat. Radiator problems often start slowly as the radiator gets clogged with particles of rust and debris.
That debris reduces the radiator’s ability to transfer heat, and your cooling system slowly loses its ability to do the job it was designed for. Fortunately, if your radiator needs cleaning, repairing or replacing we would be able to do so in a timeous manner.
We specialize in the following:
– Copper radiators
– Aluminium radiators
– Oil coolers
Our range covers Fordson, Massey Ferguson, Freightliner, International, MAN, Mercedes, Nissan, Tata, Toyota and Volvo, and so much more.
Oils are thin liquids made of long polymer chains, with additives for various extra properties. Common additives include antioxidants to keep the oil from oxidizing, corrosion inhibitors to prevent parts from corroding, and detergents to keep deposits from forming. These long chains are hard to squeeze out from between surfaces, making oils useful as a slippery barrier between them. Oils come in different “weights”, which correspond to viscosity. The lower the number, the thinner the oil, and the more easily it will flow.
Greases are made by using oil (typically mineral oil) and mixing it with thickeners (such as lithium-based soaps). They may also contain additional lubricating particles, such as graphite, molybdenum disulfide, or polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE, aka Teflon). Greases combine the lubricating properties of oils with added stickiness, allowing the lubricant to adhere to the surfaces better. Greases can even act as a barrier, protecting the surfaces from contaminants that can corrode or damage them. Like oils, greases come in a range of consistencies, from ketchup-thin too thick like cheddar cheese. One downside to grease is that because it’s so thick and sticky, it can cause resistance in small or fast-moving mechanisms.
