Danfoss MicroChannel Coil Advantages
MCHEs are made of aluminium, a low-density metal that prevents the galvanic corrosion which can occur between the aluminium and copper in F&T coils. Being made of a single material also makes it easier to recycle the product.
LOWER HOLD-UP REFRIGERANT VOLUME
The superior MicroChannel design delivers greatly improved heat transfer with less refrigerant. An MCHE’s hold-up volume is a full 77% lower than that of an F&T coil.
GREATER AIR-SIDE HEAT TRANSFER EFFICIENCY
MCHEs successfully address one of the limiting factors of coil performance and give higher air-side efficiency than F&T coils.
They offer greater tube surface and better tube-to-fin joints as well as high and consistent contact between the metal surface and the ambient air.
COMPACT DESIGN, LIGHT WEIGHT
The smart design of MCHEs means smaller coils can be used compared with an F&T coil of equivalent performance.
Cooling units can be up to 35% smaller in size, which leads to further competitive advantages such as reduced footprint and smarter logistics solutions.
MCHEs weigh 68% less than equivalent F&T coils. Their superior efficiency enables you to produce smaller, lighter units with equal performance. Their lightness also makes MCHEs cheaper to transport.
STRENGTH INCREESING, BRAZED TUBE TO FIN JOINT
Air gaps reduce heat transfer. In an MCHE, all the parts are brazed together, so there are no air gaps in the joint between the fins and the tube so heat transfer is improved & the strength increase.
LOWER PRESSURE DROP & NOISE LEVELS
Pressure drop is lower in an MCHE, which allows you to use a smaller air side fan and reduce energy consumption.
Alternatively, you can use the same fan to increase capacity.
MCHEs have an unobstructed airflow that reduces noise – a strong competitive advantage in residential AC applications.
The straight-through air flow also gives a lower pressure drop and requires less fan power.
MCHEs are very easy to clean, unlike F&T coils from which dust and dirt are difficult to remove.
LOWER PRICE & PRICE STABILITY
Since they can be made very compact, MCHEs contain less metal than F&T coils. The metal content therefore represents a smaller proportion of the total cost, which makes MCHEs less vulnerable to raw material price fluctuations.
DESIGN FLEXIBILITY & READY TO DELIVER
Our comprehensive product range gives you maximum flexibility in both the size of the coil and your mounting options.
MCHEs are available up to 1.5 x 4 metres, and we offer a range of mounting accessories to suit every type of installation.
