WEIGHT REDUCTION: Welding can reduce aluminum's yield strength by up to 80%. Because the aluminum in a bolted radiator maintains its temper, significant weight savings can be realized over welded designs. Bolted radiators also allow designers to use higher strength, non-weldable alloys, further increasing weight savings.
DIMENSIONAL ACCURACY: The elimination of welding distortion can yield a finished radiator with industry-leading dimensional accuracy.
EASE OF MAINTENANCE: The ability to remove the tanks and gain access to the end of the core allows the user to flush and dry the unit much more thoroughly.
REDUCED MANUFACTURING COST: By eliminating welding, the need for the design and procurement of welding fixtures is eliminated, reducing setup costs on the front end. In addition, recurring costs are reduced since no inspection process is needed to assess the quality of welds.
REDUCED MAINTENANCE COST: Complex header tanks can often account for a notable portion of a radiator's cost. Since bolted header tanks can be removed, they can be reused in the event that a core is damaged beyond repair.
