Backup Generator Cooling Systems
Everyone knows electricity is important. In our homes, it provides comfort (heating, air conditioning, lighting, etc.) and safety (fire protection systems, burglar alarms, etc.). For most of us, electricity is more than important to our businesses. It is CRITICAL. If your business operations rely on electricity, chances are you have a standby power system. If it’s a small facility, you may have a portable generator. Businesses with larger facilities and even office buildings require more power than a mere generator can produce.

Larger buildings require a generator system—or “genset”—to provide electrical power to the building should power from the electric company be lost. These gensets consist of several systems that work together for proper operation, including the cooling system, fuel system, battery and charging system, engine, and the generator and its controls.

Gensets are typically large, permanent structures. They may be housed in a standalone structure or integrated into the building for which they are designed to provide power.

GENSET RADIATOR maintenance and repair is one of Kendrick’s key areas of expertise. We routinely service units to ensure maximum efficiency. We can repair units on-site as space permits OR at our facility in Atlanta Ga. We also offer replacement options should it become necessary. Generator maintenance is extremely important. Remember, it is your first line of defense should your supply of power from the electric company be interrupted. Remember, your genset is your defense. Chances are, it doesn’t have a backup. Improper maintenance will eventually cause generator failure.

While the fuel system, battery and charging system, engine, generator controls are all important to maintain, we specialize in cooling systems. The cooling system includes a radiator, antifreeze, block heater and water pump. Some examples of preventive maintenance are inspecting your radiator at least monthly and checking antifreeze levels on a weekly basis. You also need to be inspecting all hoses for signs of wear (bulges, cracks, leaks, etc.), checking hose clamps for tightness, examining the water pump for leakage, etc.

Investing a small amount in maintenance now will guarantee that your genset works when you need it, preventing possible catastrophic financial loss should your external power supply be interrupted for extended periods.

Call Kendrick Radiator today. We will schedule a time to meet with you to discuss your system’s history and your business needs. We can work together to tailor a maintenance schedule designed specifically to best meet the energy needs of your business within your operating budget.

                      PLASTIC RADIATOR REPAIR

Here is a common problem on nearly any car built since
about 1990.  Radiators are now built out of aluminum and
plastic instead of copper and brass.  While the aluminum
design gives longer life, and better cooling, there are also
some major disadvantages.  The main disadvantage of
building a radiator out of plastic is that over time, plastic will
become brittle and break.  A radiator is subjected to major
extremes of temperature.  A radiator can be subjected to
temperature swings from 0 degrees or lower depending on
outside temperature, to 240 degrees or more as scalding
hot antifreeze comes out of the engine at 40 gallons per
minute.  When you consider the millions of gallons of
coolant that circluates through a radiator during its life, it is
truly amazing that a radiator lives as long as it does.  The
major problem with a plastic tank radiator is a failure of the
plastic, usually in the area directly by the inlet neck.  This is
where the hottest coolant fluid hits the plastic, and over
time, the stresses of extreme temperatures take its toll and
the plastic tank will develop a leak.  
Kendrick Radiator has a solution to this problem.  Instead of throwing your radiator away and
buying a new one, we simply remove the broken plastic tank, and install a new one.  We
don’t use and magic glue, super adhesive, or bondo, (although we have seen many people
try to fix them this way).   A brand new Factory plastic tank installed by Kendrick Radiator will
give you many more years of trouble free serviceThe following pictures illustrate a problem and then the cure by Kendrick Radiator. 
Problem – Broken neck on a plastic radiator tank.  A customer was
replacing a radiator hose at home and overtightened the top radiator hose.
 In its brittle state, the tank broke and he had a leak.  On the bottom is the
original radiator with a chunk missing out of the inlet neck on the radiator.  
On the top is a brand new GM Factory radiator tank that we will install on
this radiator.  We will remove the broken plastic tank from the radiator.  
Then, we remove the oil cooler from the old tank and replace it in the new
tank with new gaskets to prevent any leaks.  While we have the radiator
disassembled, we will clean out the tubes inside the radiator and check the
flow.  Next we reinstall the new radiator tank with a new gasket.  The last
step is to bench the radiator under pressure to double check that there are
no leaks.  Problem solved with service from Kendrick Radiator
Here is another common problem.  Stress crack in the side of the plastic radiator
tank.  This is caused by extreme temperatures of the coolant causing the plastic
flex thousands of times.  After 100,000 miles or more, the plastic finally gives in
and fractures.   This is still a very good radiator, it just needs this one end
replaced, and it should be good for another 100,000 miles.
Here is another common problem we see with many cars today.  Major
contamination in the cooling system.  This can be caused by many different
things including:  General neglect of anti-freeze, rust in the cooling system from
the engine, mixing the wrong type of anti-freeze, adding stop leaks to the
radiator, etc.  This radiator did not leak, it just severely overheated, leaving the
customer stranded on the side of the road.  The solution is to remove the plastic
tank and remove all contamination from the radiator.  The pictures below will
show the difference in flow rates before and after cleaning.

These two pictures show the major change in coolant flow of a radiator before and
after it has been cleaned by Kendrick Radiator.  To simulate coolant flow through
the radiator we have attached a water line to the radiator and let the water flow
through it.  The radiator on the left has not been cleaned, and the water just barely
trickles through it.  Low coolant flow through a radiator will not dissipate the heat
quickly enough and cause a serious overheating situation.  The picture on the right is the same radiator after it has been cleaned out and is
ready to be reassembled.  As you can see, the water is practically jumping out of
the radiator.  This higher flow rate will allow coolant to flow through the engine
faster, which makes for a more efficient transfer of heat to the radiator.  This will
keep the engine at the proper operating temperature.  Another, cooling system problem solved by Kendrick Radiator.
