Strength and Reliability
The key to strength, durability, and performance comes from vacuum brazing. Vacuum brazing is a manufacturing process used to join all the components once assembled that requires the use of magnesium. Magnesium is found in aluminum alloys to give structural components strength when high strength is required. Griffin Thermal Products utilizes this process to offer one of the toughest aluminum radiators on the market today. By producing the tubes, fins, headers, side bands, tanks, and mounting brackets in house, every piece is performance matched for optimum cooling with unsurpassed quality.

Then secure the radiator with mounting hardware, the shroud, or a support cover to the radiator support. If you are using an electric fan, it will need to be mounted to the radiator as well. Next, the upper and lower radiator hoses can be clamped to the radiator from the water pump and thermostat housing. If the vehicle has an automatic transmission, the fluid cooler lines are reconnected next. Then, the coolant overflow or recirculation tank is connected to the radiator. After confirming the correct radiator cap fits the radiator, the coolant can then be poured into the radiator. The engine coolant bleeding process can then begin with the engine running as well as checking the automatic transmission fluid(if equipped) level and topping off if necessary. The overflow tank can then be filled to the correct level, completing the in
