Multivoid aluminium tubing for AC Condensers

Reason for use: Corrosion protection and brazing during assembly Download PDF Corrosion of heat exchangers for automotive air conditioning units can be a major problem. The unit is often located near the front grille of the vehicle and hence is exposed to a severely corrosive environment, with road salts, rain and high temperatures all contributing to high corrosion rates. In order to reduce the rate of corrosion, historically several methods have been tried: zinc diffusion by flux brazing, sacrificial anodes…
