This type of heat exchanger was used for the first time in around 2008 in the automotive industry.
With its globally patented FLAT TUBE system, Mitsubishi Electric has further developed this technology to offer even more advantages.
Unparalleled quality, efficiency and product integrity are the tangible results of a production process based on a single brazing stage instead of the 200-300 manually brazed individual connections necessary with a conventional copper/aluminium coil.
Moreover, the FLAT TUBE heat exchanger requires a smaller charge volume than a conventional bi-metal coil, as the microchannels limit the available volume for the refrigerant fluid while also creating a larger thermal exchange surface area.
Weather resistance is a key factor for the heat exchanger coil, as it is perhaps the component that is most exposed to the harmful effects of the atmosphere.
