Cooling services

Kempston Radiators has over 50 years experience in the radiator industry and specialises in all aspects of cooling services. Not only can we cover car and commercial vehicles but also industrial heat transfer solutions as well.


The Radiator is situated at the front of the vehicle and is essential for the cooling of the combustion engine. Kempston Radiators stocks and supplies radiators for cars, vans, HGVs, agricultural vehicles and plant machinery and our knowledgeable staff can source the radiator you require from the vehicles registration using a VRM system.

A/C Condensers

The function of the condenser is to change gas to liquid expelling heat from the vehicle, they are positioned at the front of the vehicle but this makes them prone to damage from impact, corrosion and the elements, causing it to leak and lose refrigerant. Condenser failure is typically the most frequent cause of an air conditioning problem.

A/C Compressors

The compressor is the driving force of the air conditioning system and is also known as the air conditioning pump, it is a vital part of the system and is mounted within the engine compartment. We can supply brand new original equipment and aftermarket Air-con compressors for cars, vans, HGV’s, agricultural vehicles and plant machinery.


The heater is positioned behind the dashboard and is part of the climate control inside the vehicle. The heating system is linked directly to the engine cooling system and it is therefore important to get your vehicle checked if a problem occurs or you experience problems with your blowers and vents.


An intercooler is another name for a heat exchanger and is used to cool air to the engine that has been compressed by either a super charger or turbo charger. The heating system is linked directly to the engine cooling system and it is therefore important to get your vehicle checked if a problem occurs.
