The most widely used materials for the fabrication of heat exchangers have been copper and aluminum alloys. The reasons behind this choice have been sound in that such components, requiring an efficient transfer of heat from one fluid to another, should be made of materials with a high thermal conductivity. However, other factors greatly influence the choice of material; ease of fabrication as well as weight and performance of the component must also be carefully considered. This is particularly true when the heat exchanger is to be used with mobile equipment.
