Which is better, steel radiator or aluminum heatsink

Steel radiators are easy to oxidize and corrode, and have relatively high requirements on water quality, so they are not suitable for geothermal heating. In non-heating seasons, it needs to be maintained with full water. For buildings with central heating, the water flowing through the radiator needs to be deoxidized.

    Using aluminum as raw material, it is small in size, light in weight, high in heat dissipation efficiency, and obvious in energy saving. In the same room, if the radiator of the same specification is used, the number of aluminum used is less than that of steel. Aluminum has good oxidation corrosion resistance without adding any additives. aluminum heatsink have a strong resistance to oxygen, but they are afraid of alkali corrosion. However, the current water-alkaline conference will have an impact on the aluminum radiator, and internal anti-corrosion must be done well.

    Generally speaking, in dry places, you can consider installing steel radiators, and in places with a lot of water, you can consider installing aluminum heatsink. Steel tends to rust in wet places, while aluminum is a little more waterproof. In addition, the surface of the steel radiator is relatively hot during use, while the surface of the aluminum radiator is not particularly hot. So from another point of view, aluminum heatsink are safer.
   Steel radiators and aluminum heatsink are the most commonly used types of radiators at present. Steel radiators have various styles and require high water quality. aluminum heatsink have good heat dissipation and are afraid of alkali corrosion. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages.
