Delphi: Micro Channel Evaporator
Delphi’s micro channel evaporator was named a winner of the 2010 AHR Expo Innovation Award in the Cooling category. It is based on Delphi’s Micro Channel Heat Exchanger (MCHX) technology. It joins three key components - the flat micro-channel tube, the fins and two refrigerant manifolds - together in a single coil. The optimized coil design provides a high rate of heat transfer while maintaining low air-side pressure drop. With this design, the micro channel evaporator can operate efficiently in both condensing (heating) and evaporating (cooling) modes.
