The air conditioning and refrigeration market is a growing and increasingly significant user of copper tube.Copper tubes and coils have been used for many years in all types of heat exchangers. Responding to market needs and regulatory goals, innovative thinking from the copper industry has reshaped the traditional heat exchanger into a resource-efficient, eco-friendly and cost-effective unit.Small-diameter copper tube packs all the advantages of copper into more compact, more efficient heat exchanger coils, reducing the cost of high-efficiency air conditioners and refrigerators for homes and businesses.
Using proven, cost-effective copper fabrication processes and familiar assembly techniques, suppliers and manufacturers are producing new commercial and residential air conditioning and refrigeration products based on small-diameter copper tubing
- Cost-effective fabrication and assembly.
- Smaller size, less weight and lower material costs.
- Higher heat transfer coefficients.
- Well-suited for new refrigerants.
- Uses less refrigerant.
- Overall reduction in system cost.
