Specialist engine cooling systems advice

Whatever problems or questions you may have, your Silverton radiators outlet is a specialist on the subject and will gladly help. Please contact your nearest outlet directly for assistance.

Professional flushing of cooling systems

Good quality engine coolant contains various additives that will protect the system in different ways. Over time these additives will start to break down and lose their effectiveness and at this point the performance of the cooling system components will be compromised due to factors such as corrosion or build-up of foreign particles on the surfaces of the various components. This will impair the performance of the system and may lead to more expensive repairs at a later stage.

In order to maintain the system at optimal performance levels it is recommended to replace the coolant and flush the system from time to time. Please contact your local Silverton Radiators outlet and they will gladly assist.

Radiator and intercooler re-coring or refurbishment

Certain types of radiators and intercoolers / charge air coolers can easily be re-cored as a cost effective alternative to replacing a part with a new one. Another alternative for copper brass type radiators may be to repair or refurbish the item if damage is not too extensive. Your local Silverton radiators outlet will be happy to assist you in determining the best solution for your needs.
