Heat Exchanger Cap

Our diesel experts at Marine Diesel Specialists in Fort Lauderdale and Gulf Coast Diesel Services provide premium marine parts, maintenance services, and repairs in South Florida. A heat exchanger cap is essential in your MAN boat or yacht engine.

What Does a Heat Exchanger Do For a Boat?

Heat exchangers combine seawater and a coolant to keep a marine engine from overheating. The coolant and seawater maximize heat exchanger efficiency to keep the engine running cool and efficiently. The heat exchanger cap helps your engines reduce corrosion and damage to your heat exchanger system.          

How to Maintain a Heat Exchanger?

Heat exchangers and caps need to be consistently checked for corrosion, debris, and leakage. If clogged, it can restrict the water flow causing your diesel engine to overheat.  Our MAN maintenance experts suggest regularly cleaning the heat exchanger and cap with some acid. Our marine rebuild specialists highly recommend scheduling yearly diesel engine surveys to keep your engine running smoothly. Regular maintenance checkups minimize the need to replace your engine.

Signs to Service or Replace Your Heat Exchanger Cap

If you are noticing the following from your heat exchanger and cap, it may be time to service or replace:

  • Clogged with Debris
  •  Leaking Coolant
  • White Streaks or Corrosion Marks
  • Overheated Engine
