Which metal is used for making car condensers?

 Used Trucks for Sale

Car condensers look similar to the radiators but have the exact opposite function of that a radiator. Hence, similar to radiators, it has historically been made of metals that possess a high thermal conductivity or the capacity to transfer heat through it without much resistance.

Previously, car condensers were generally made from brass or copper. Cheaper cars that did not carry powerful engines had brass condensers. Expensive and bulky models with heft engines required the condensers to be made of copper. Today, however, when you buy used cars in Mauldin, most of them will come with aluminum condensers.

Brass has long been eliminated from the picture owing to its lower thermal conductivity than aluminum. And that latter replaced copper as well because aluminum boasts of the same properties as copper but at a 341% cheaper price. Manufacturers have thus moved away from copper and brass. When you buy used trucks in Simpsonville now, or even used cars, expect the condenser to be of aluminum.
