Emphasising on the advantages of smaller diameter, copper tube development in India, International Copper Association India (ICA India) organised a special seminar in Gurugram. The seminar was hosted with an aim to showcase how smaller-diameter tubes can be used to increase the rate of heat transmission through coils in numerous applications, thereby, improving the energy efficiency.

Gracing the event in large numbers were professionals from the R&D team of room air conditioners and coil manufacturers from across the country. Sanjeev Ranjan, Managing Director, ICA India welcomed the dignitaries through his special address. The panel at the seminar included Frank Gao, ICA China, Ajay Sharma, Spirotech Heat Exchangers, Dr Wu, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Hong Qingchi, Hailiang, Anand Sharma, Burr Oak Tools, Harshal Upadhyay, Zamil Air Conditioners, and Avinash Khemka, ICA India. Speaking at the seminar, Sanjeev Ranjan, Managing Director, ICA India said, “Smaller Diameter Copper Tube Heat Exchangers are used to make refrigeration equipment, heat pumps and air conditioners that are a great energy efficient alternative. They have a key role to play in the design of ACR products and is one of the best alternatives to use with green refrigerants. Microgroove is one piece of the sustainability puzzle for cooling and refrigeration and is suitable for use with many eco-friendly refrigerants.”

The use of 5mm Copper Heat Exchangers in condensers reduces cost, creates higher energy efficiency, and comes with high durability and demands low investments. This advanced heat transfer efficiency, therefore, increases the overall energy efficiency of the system. The use of smaller tubes also improves the air-flow outside the tubes because of the concentrated form factor.
