Its ingenious design significantly optimizes the efficiency of residential, commercial and industrial air conditioning and refrigeration outdoor units, it transfers heat through 32 mm thick flat tubes, through which the refrigerant circulates; it 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 know their main advantages.
FLAT PIPE - Designed to maximize heat transfer along with the refrigerant, resulting in smaller, more compact and 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 CHARGE - The smaller the condenser size, the smaller the volume and space occupied, resulting in 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, hence smaller, more efficient fan sizes that save more energy and lower noise levels.
100% ALUMINUM - HIGH CORROSION RESISTANCE - They are more resistant to galvanic corrosion (corrosion by direct contact of two or more dissimilar metals) than conventional copper-aluminum units and retain thermal performance longer, can have a life cycle three to five times longer than a conventional unit and are 100% recyclable.
LOW PROBABILITY OF LEAKAGE - The rigid one-piece construction and flat pipe design make the chances of leakage almost zero. If a leak does occur, it can be easily repaired with epoxy welding.
MAINTENANCE - All metals oxidize in the presence of oxygen, aluminum is no exception, oxidation is much faster than iron, the difference is that iron oxidation is always continuous and aluminum oxidation stops, forming on the surface a hard and compact layer that acts as a barrier or defense, preventing the oxidation from advancing, if this oxidation appears or is present it should not be removed under any circumstances, for cleaning should not use any type of chemical or detergents, water pressure is the only recommended cleaning.
To avoid corrosion before installing in the field, it is necessary to apply an anticorrosive coating of those that currently exist in the market.
In CONCLUSION: condensing units using Microchannel technology optimize efficiency, reduce energy costs, maximize resources, are 100% environmentally friendly due to their ease of recycling and finally improve the quality of the installations.
