Microchannel heat exchanger surfaces

Microchannel technology is being increasingly adopted by manufacturers in heating, air conditioning and refrigeration products, both for their enhanced energy efficiency, cost and reduced refrigerant charge. 

The goal with microchannel heat exchangers is to improve overall heat transfer, which could potentially reduce the temperature difference between the air and a refrigerant. Additionally, the heat exchangers minimise airside pressure drop, which results in more energy savings gained from the fan energy consumption.
