Paper Title:
Thermomechanical Treatment of Aluminum Alloy Fin Stock for Heat Exchanger Produced by Twin Roll Strip Casting Process
  Abstract

Aluminum alloys are commonly used as a material for heat exchangers due to their higher thermal conductivity and specific strength among various metallic materials. The lightweightening heat exchangers for automobile application are requisite for reducing the evolution of CO2 and improving the efficiency of fuel. The twin roll strip casting process is considered to produce the high quality and low manufacturing cost aluminum alloy fin stock for automobile heat exchangers. Thermomechamical treatment has carried out to obtain optimum processes for initial cold rolling, intermediate annealing and final cold rolling, which can meet the requirements for high strength and high thermal conductivity after brazing heat treatment. Mechanical properties and thermal condutivity have been evaluated before and after simulated brazing process. The nuclei of recrystallization might be formed along shear deformation bands during initial cold rolling and should be grown during intermediate annealing to enhance the permeation of molten brazings for the following brazing process. Final cold rolling has allowed strain hardening and controlling of sagging amount as fin stock materials of heat exchanger. In the present study the suitable thermomechnical treatment was suggested to balance the properties of strength, thermal conductivity, brazing behavior and sagging in Al-Fe-Mn-Si-Zn based alloys produced by twin roll strip casting process.
