Two major considerations to be taken into account when using brazed aluminum heat exchangers for military environmental control units are highlighted from the corrosion observations. The standard brazed aluminum construction must have an organic or equally resistive coating for protection against high salt atmospheres which exist in many areas of the world. An improvement in corrosion resistivity through material and construction changes is also desirable to add to the benefits obtainable through protective coatings, such as use of Alclad for the prime surface.
