Microchannel heat exchangers: features and benefits

May 1, 2016

All-aluminium microchannel heat exchanging products are now being widely used in the HVAC industry: they provide higher performance, smaller size, features and capabilities not found in traditional fin/tube heat exchangers.


Microchannel technology offers improved performance by increasing air-side heat transfer between the fins and the ambient air, heat conduction between the fins and tubes and refrigerant-side heat transfer between the tubes and the refrigerant.

 

Briefly summarized, microchannel heat exchanging technology offer the following improvements over traditional fin/tube designs:

 

Higher efficiency and performance

 

  • 20% to 40% greater overall heat transfer performance

  • Drastic reduction in airside pressure drops

 

Smaller size and less weight

 

  • 10% to 30% smaller coil face upon design conditions

  • Thin profile takes up less space

  • Up to 60% less weight

 

Reduced costs

 

  • Less refrigerant charge

  • Reduced material cost

 

Proven reliability

 

  • Time-tested manufacturing processes and materials

  • Higher corrosion resistance

  • More robust construction
