Ford Mechanically Assembled Aluminum Radiator 830019

This paper discusses the design, development and manufacturing of the Ford mechanically assembled aluminum radiator. This new product is lighter in weight, lower in cost, and has superior reliability and durability compared to its copper and brass counterpart. Extensive research and development by Ford of coolants, corrosion inhibitors, and the use of an air side sealant at the tube to header interface has made the mechanically assembled aluminum radiator very attractive for vehicle applications where moderate cooling requirements exist.
