Copper Frequently Asked Questions
Energy efficiency: reducing the diameter of copper tubes in coils provides an economical path to energy efficiency for air conditioning and refrigeration (ACR)
Less material: tube-diameter reduction results in more effective heat transfer and consequently smaller, lighter coils. Less tube and fin material could provide equivalent
heat transfer or more heat transfer; or the same material could provide much more heat transfer.
Less refrigerant: a dramatic reduction in refrigerant volume is a further benefit of copper tubes.
Durability: coils made of copper tubes and aluminium fins (CTAF) or copper tubes and copper fins (CTCF) are durable and dependable. They set the industry standard for corrosion resistance and long, reliable service life.
Because the thermal conductivity is so high - it is 23 times better than stainless steel or titanium and 1.6 times better than aluminum.
