Timeline

Mechanical Heater Cores, also known as Expanded Tube Heater Cores, first hit the market in the 1990’s for Chrysler and high-end import applications. This style consists of copper tubes, aluminum fins and plastic tanks. There are some models that do not have a bottom tank, therefore the tubes are exposed. Aftermarket models with this style have been designed with aluminum tubes and O.E applications have started following suit.
