Few reports give information on corrosion damage of Al-radiators. Some paper deal with the effect of pH, and contaminations of water on corrosion and bimetallic corrosion. The role of oxygen, metal ions and organic materials are often neglected. The aim of the authors is the elaboration of practical directives for installation and operation of Al-radiators with respect to corrosion aspects. The paper contains the previous problems, the effect of steel, Cu and plastic pipes and the effect of auxiliary materials used for mounting.
