Design Features

Depending on the vehicle packaging requirements, down-flow or cross flow designs are available. The brazed aluminum construction provides advantages in both performance and mass. The radiators’ in-tank concentric and laminated plate coolers are optional for automatic transmission and/or engine oil cooling applications which are available for small cars to light duty trucks. Calsonic offers a variety of tube and fin selections available depending on performance level required.

Material & Process Features

Our radiators are made using in-house injection molding of nylon plastic tanks with die repair shop and engineering onsite. Another process we use is in-house stamping of most stamped metallic components. Zinc-bearing fin, tube and header plate alloys are used for external and internal corrosion protection. *Nocolok™ brazing process used for core. Nocolok™ is a patented brazing process of Alcan.

Size

12mm, 16mm, 27mm, 35mm, and 42mm core depths available

Testing

Like all of our products, the radiator goes through top of the line testing including: in-house performance simulation capability by KULI analysis, FEA capability to optimize product from the earliest stages of development. We have complete in-house prototype capabilities and fully capable in-house laboratories to validate all aspects of performance and durability, including a full scale vehicle wind tunnel. Annual competitive benchmarking ensures Calsonic Kansei remains a leader of industry trends.
