A truck A/C condenser is somewhat similar looking to a radiator. Condensers are usually made of aluminum and located near the front of the engine to allow air to flow through. An evaporators job is to absorb heat where a condensers job is built to release heat.
The cooling system and especially the radiator are crucial in keeping your engine from overheating. Your commercial truck engine can produce a large amount of heat, and without a properly functioning radiator, it will certainly overheat. The radiator in your truck is filled with a mixture of water and anti-freeze. This mixture is moved through your cooling system usually by a water pump.
One of the key factors of keeping your engine running smooth and hassle-free is your cooling system. If your engine overheats, it could cost you a ton of time and money to get it back on the road. So you need to take the time to make sure your cooling system is working properly and a key component that should not be overlooked is the coolant tubes.
The Surge Tank is an integral part of a trucks cooling system. The main function of a surge tank is to control the pressure variations caused by changes in temperature. They prevent system failure by controlling the rise and fall in pressure in the cooling system. Usually, a radiator is topped with a surge tank to prevent the blowing out of radiator fluid.
