ADVANTAGES OF THE MICRO CHANNEL
This ingenious design significantly optimizes the efficiency of residential, commercial and industrial air conditioning and refrigeration outdoor units or condensers, it transfers heat through flat tubes, 32 mm thick, through which it circulates the refrigerant; works with almost all current refrigerants on the market, R410A, R134A, R404A, R507A, R290 and R717, its maximum working pressure can be up to 650 PSI.
They are currently the industry standard and today we are going to learn about their main advantages.
Designed to maximize heat transfer along with the refrigerant, resulting in smaller, more compact and more efficient condensing units.
MORE EFFICIENT HEAT TRANSFER
Heat transfer increases by 20-30%, resulting in lower condensing temperatures and smaller, more compact compressors.
LESS REFRIGERANT LOAD
The smaller the condenser size, the smaller the volume and the space occupied, this is a lower refrigerant charge, up to 70% in the condenser and up to 40% in the entire system.
LESS AIR PRESSURE LOSS
By reducing the amount of refrigerant, you get less pressure loss with the same heat transfer, consequently smaller and more efficient fan sizes that save more energy and lower noise levels.
100% ALUMINUM - HIGH CORROSION RESISTANCE
They are more resistant to galvanic corrosion (direct contact corrosion of two or more different metals) than conventional copper-aluminum coils and retain thermal performance for longer, they can have a life cycle between three and five times longer than a conventional coil and are 100% recyclable.
LOW CHANCE OF LEAKS
The rigid one-piece construction and flat tubing design make the chances of leaks almost zero. If a leak occurs, it can be easily repaired with epoxy welding.
All metals oxidize in the presence of oxygen, aluminum is no exception, the oxidation is much faster than that of iron, the difference is that the oxidation of iron is always continuous and that of aluminum stops, forming on the surface a hard and compact layer that acts as a barrier or defense, preventing oxidation from advancing, if this oxidation appears or is present it must not be removed under any circumstances, for cleaning you should not use any type of chemical, or detergents, water pressure is the only recommended cleaning item.
To avoid corrosion before installing in the field, it is necessary to apply an anticorrosive coating of those that currently exist on the market.
In CONCLUSION: the condensing units that use Micro Channel technology optimize their efficiency, reduce energy costs, maximize resources, are 100% friendly to the environment due to their ease of recycling and finally improve the quality of the facilities.
