What Cools Better Aluminum Or Copper?

Are Aluminium radiators any good?

Aluminium radiators heat up and cool down very quickly thanks to their super conductivity, so they are also the best at regulating the temperature of a room.

Added to that, they are extremely lightweight, and so a good choice to hang on a stud wall that might not be able to take the weight of a 50kg steel radiator..

What is the advantage of an aluminum radiator?

In short, aluminum radiators mark a modern advancement in cooling. Not only does the material dissipate heat at close to double the rate compared to brass, but also reduced the overall weight of the vehicle and provides a stronger and more durable core and tube design.

What dissipates heat better aluminum or copper?

It is clear that thermal conductivity of copper is better than aluminium and specific heat of copper is less than that of aluminium. So it is clear that copper will transfer more heat. But aluminium is preferred in automobile radiator and many other heat transfer application over copper.

Does Copper cool faster than aluminum?

Aluminum has the ability to absorb heat faster than copper, and when removed from the heat source, will cool faster because it is less dense than copper. BUT..in a system with steady heat input, like a computer cpu, copper is better at keeping heat going into and out of the metal, much as it is with electricity.
