The Radiator Cap and How it Works

The Radiator Cap and How it Works

The radiator cap is a product of brilliant engineering. Its basic design is of two coaxial, spring-loaded, one-way gates, that open in opposite directions. This design allows for self regulation and safe engine cooling in an elegant, simple design. The lowly radiator cap is the hidden genius behind an engine’s cooling system. Because filling from the reservoir relies on a natural siphon effect, it is critical that an air tight seal be maintained at the radiator cap and adjacent structures. From: spelunkerd

Photo: Some rights reserved by quinet When the pressure inside the cooling system increases above its psi rating, the pressure cap releases some of the coolant into the overflow tank. It does this by use of a spring loaded valve. Once enough coolant has exited the system to reduce the pressure, the valve closes again. This action allows the system to remain at the optimal psi while the engine is running. This is great for when the engine is running, but what happens when you turn it off? As the engine cools down and the pressure in the system … Continue reading
