Copper-Brass Radiator vs. Aluminum Radiator

Over the last few years, we’ve also been building our in-house aluminum core manufacturing department. And so we often get asked by our customers “what’s better, a copper-brass radiator or an aluminum radiator?”

The answer is it depends on your machine’s needs and the environment you’re using it in. So here’s some of the benefits of copper-brass rads vs. aluminum rads.

The Benefits of Copper-Brass Radiators:

  • Can last up to 6,000 hours without failure
  • It’s a trusted material
  • It’s an excellent heat conductor
  • It’s extremely durable and easy-to-repair

The Benefits of Aluminum Radiators:

  • Strong thermal properties, allowing it to conduct heat efficiently
  • Aluminum is a 100% recyclable material
  • Can withstand extreme working conditions
  • The aluminum tubes West End Rad manufactures are larger than the OEM, which can accommodate heavy-duty demands better
