Surge Tanks For Your Coolant System

Peterbilt Surge Tanks


Surge tanks help your cooling system from becoming overheated. The purpose of surge tanks is to regulate the pressure build up in your cooling system. The surge tank works in conjunction with the radiator, when the buildup in pressure in the radiator happens, the overflow fluid is moved into the surge tank which prevents the radiator from leaking. Normally, the surge tank is mounted on the top of the radiator, but sometimes it can be mounted on a firewall.


Southpointe Replacement Surge Tanks


At Southpointe Radiator, our OEM replacement surge tanks are made of quality stainless steel, and in many cases, more durable than the original manufacturers surge tank. Our surge tanks are meant for large heavy duty type trucks, such as Western Star, Motor Homes, Volvo, Freightliner, Kenworth, Peterbilt and more. 

Our Kenworth tank, for example, mounts directly onto the firewall and is made from high strength steel and will not crack. This tank comes with all the mounting holes and sight glasses installed. A sight glass is a clear tube so you can see the liquids that are inside the tube. Along with Kenworth, we also carry Freightliner surge tanks. The 51-553-4A tank, for example, is made from 1/8 inch steel. This tank is made to easily bolt to the top frame of the radiator. We also carry tanks for motorhomes, such as the 51-A05-17998-000, this tank is made from aluminum and has a lifetime warranty against cracking or any weld defaults. 

These are just some of the examples of surge tanks we carry at Southpointe Radiator. Along with the tanks, we also carry all the coolant tubes you need to keep your truck on the road.
