Summary

If you notice your forklift engine's temperature is higher than its average range, one of the first devices you should check is the radiator cap. Simply replacing a bad forklift radiator cap on time can save you a lot of trouble. So if you're looking for a good forklift radiator cap price, you've come to the right place. At Lift Parts Warehouse, you'll find everything you need to take care of your lift truck, regardless of its type or brand. We carry a large selection of forklift spare parts, including quality forklift radiator caps. Stay with us to know more about it.

Forklift Radiator Caps for a Better Cooling Performance

A forklift radiator cap is a small device that is part of the cooling system of any forklift powered by an internal combustion engine. They are usually located on top of radiators and serve as a coolant pressure regulating valve. Depending on the size and model of the forklift radiator, the dimensions and features of the radiator cap may vary; however, their designs usually remain the same. The purpose is to serve as both a pressure control and relief valve. By prolonging the use of a faulty radiator cap, you risk subjecting the engine to severe damage. The best thing you can do when they fail is purchase a new one to keep your forklift's cooling system working at its peak level.

The radiator cap is designed to hold the coolant in the radiator under a predetermined amount of pressure. Once the pressure reaches its maximum level, the radiator cap opens its release valve and allows heat to escape.

Once the coolant leaves the engine body, it enters with a considerable amount of heat into the upper radiator reservoir. As refrigerant accumulates at such temperatures, the pressure inside the upper tank will rise considerably and may cause a pressure lock. But the low-pressure seal on a radiator cap will move up and cause coolant to flow into a reservoir tank. The upper-pressure seal ensures the tightness of the lid. It helps prevent the escaping of coolant or entry of air into the system.

The vacuum valve opens to regulate the cooling system's pressure once it is lower than the outside air pressure. It occurs when the engine cools down. It helps extract part of the refrigerant stored in the coolant reservoir tank to inside the radiator, avoiding the radiator hoses collapse.

Choose the Right Radiator Cap

A good forklift radiator cap price is not the one that is the cheapest but the one that has the best quality-price balance. To properly choose the radiator cap for your forklift, the first thing you must make sure is that the new replacement can meet the parameters that your forklift radiator requires. Below we highlight the most notable:

  • Dimensions: The total height, the distance between hooks, the width, and the radiator cap diameter are helpful parameters when buying a new forklift radiator cap.
  • Operating pressure: It is the most critical parameter. The new forklift radiator cap must withstand the same pressure range established for your radiator lift truck model to ensure good performance. A pressure range for a typical radiator cap is between 4 Psi - 30 Psi. Be careful when reading pressure measurement as some manufacturers express it in other units as Bar o KPa.
  • Radiator cap type: A cooling system can work with a recovery cap and a non-recovery cap. The design of the recovery cap has a single seal; meanwhile, a non-recovery cap has a double seal. Generally, Forklift cooling systems use a recovery cap.

New Radiator Caps to Keep You Going

A bad radiator cap can cause your forklift's engine temperature problems. It is preferable to know when it is time to replace it before impulsively buying a new radiator. It is best to check the current device to find out if what you need is a new radiator cap to keep your material handling activities going.

A basic visual inspection could identify the problem:

  1. Turn the engine off and wait for it to cool down.
  2. Remove the radiator. As the first step, turn it clockwise to release the remaining pressure. Then, push it and turn it again until it is removed. While doing this, check if this device is fixed correctly to the radiator tank.
  3. Inspect the condition of the device's internal components.
  • Springs: If there is no chance to exert pressure on the springs inside this device during the visual inspection, it means that the cap is damaged and needs a replacement.
  • Seals: If seals are melted, broken, or deformed is recommended to replace the cap

For a deeper inspection, special equipment is necessary to evaluate the performance of the cap. In any case, a forklift radiator cap price is not usually high, so replacing the old one with a new one is sometimes the best call.

Replace Your Faulty Forklift Radiator Cap Before it's too Late

Most forklift radiator cap seals are made of rubber, which means that over time, they will eventually lose properties. Degraded rubber seals will lead to several failures. The continued exposure to high temperatures and changing pressure cycles will eventually affect the original shape of the seals. On the other hand, the radiator caps' valve springs are made of metallic material, which mechanical properties may be affected by the use. Also, a metallic spring is vulnerable to rust and corrosion. If the radiator cap seals start to deteriorate, the radiator cap's spring will do as well, at a fairly quick rate.

A Faulty Forklift Radiator Cap

The common problems that come from a defective radiator cap are:

  • The coolant passes to the reservoir tank when it is not required.
  • The radiator cap gets stuck in the radiator, and thus, the pressure will still increase inside the radiator without control.
  • Another related problem is when the upper seal is defective because it causes air entry into the cooling system. The presence of this air in the system has its components corrosion as a consequence.
  • A radiator hose collapses by excessive internal suction. It happens when the vacuum valve of the radiator cap is defective.

Find the Best Forklift Radiator Cap Deals at Lift Parts Warehouse

At Lift Parts Warehouse, we understand how frustrating it can be to find the right forklift radiator cap. Many of these caps are very similar to one another, making it easy to make a mistake when purchasing them. Not all radiator caps are interchangeable. Even if a cap from another radiator model looks like it fits at first glance, the seal may not be completely hermetic.

The good news is that thanks to Lift Parts Warehouse, you won't have to worry about this happening to you. Also, you won't find better deals anywhere else. Lift Parts Warehouse always strives to deliver the best products at the most affordable prices, so you probably shouldn't be surprised to find a forklift radiator cap price that suits your needs.
