CACs are unlike radiators that are filled with coolant that will give visible signs of a leak
CACs must have a pressure test performed to confirm its integrity
Charge air coolers are not designed to be 100% air tight and leak free
A good rule of thumb is, Charge Air Coolers that show a pressure drop greater than 5 PSI within 15 seconds when pressurized at 30 PSI, should be replaced. Northern’s CAC Test Set provides you with the tools to safely and effectively determine whether any CAC passes or fails the manufacturer's specifications.
