State-of-the-Art Copper/Brass Radiator at Nippondenso Part 1. New Radiator Development
This paper introduces a new type of radiator that has been developed with the objective being, high performance (compact size), light weight, and high quality in the field of copper/brass radiators that are superior in heat conduction, lower in price, yet there is still more room for improvement. The development of a new copper/brass radiator with the objective being higher performance (more compact), lighter weight, and higher quality has been completed. The synthetic study covered is not only an in-depth analysis of performance and structure, but the new development of materials and production engineering. As a result, the new radiator has a minimum of 10% increased performance, a minimum of 25% weight reduction, and its corrosion resistance is more than twice that of a conventional radiator.
