Aluminum Cores

Many off-road aluminum radiators, charge air coolers, and oil coolers are subject to high-debris environments.


Applications like this may cause the air fins to get clogged and the engine to run hot.

Active’s aluminum wave fin is a viable alternative.

  • Non-Louvered Fins
  • 6-8-10 fins per inch
  • Air passes through freely to avoid clogging
  • Increased tube-to-fin contact maximizes heat transfer

Our aluminum coolers come in a variety of configurations. We offer a full range of coolers from standard welded tubes to extruded tubing. Headers can be constructed with standard flanged aluminum, or aluminum bar headers.
