Speaker: John Hipchen, President, Exel Consulting Group

Today's market is challenging manufacturers of air conditioning and refrigeration equipment to increase energy efficiency, use less materials and reduce impact on the environment. The superior heat transfer of smaller-diameter copper tubes with inner grooves is helping manufacturers meet these demands with high-performance compact coils that reduce energy requirements, transfer heat more efficiently and lower costs by using less material while using familiar manufacturing techniques. In this webinar, the advantage of MicroGroove™ technology is clearly demonstrated through data comparisons of products. The webinar will conclude by showing how improved heat transfer results in a system-wide savings of energy and materials.

MicroGroove technology is here, and now it is being implemented in places that might surprise you.  Although developed initially for the residential market, MicroGroove smaller-diameter copper tubing is also being adopted in larger commercial and industrial applications. The International Copper Association is teaming up with Super Radiator Coils to present a new webinar focused on the use of MicroGroove technology in large coils under demanding conditions. Learn from a leading manufacturer of heat exchangers how smaller-diameter copper MicroGroove tubing can be applied to meet the challenges of efficiency, cost, space and weight.
