Improved Tubing for Flat Oval Tube Condenser 971797

During the past few years, a new Flat Oval Tube Condenser has been developed (1) and launched in the market place (2) as a very strong and competitive alternative to the well known brazed Parallel Flow Condenser, due to its high performance and low cost.
The Flat Oval Tubing used for this condenser application, seems very similar to traditional tubing used in Oval and Flat Oval Tube Radiators.
However, due to higher pressure and pulsations when the A/C system is cycled on and off, it was very important to study fatigue properties to ensure a sufficient lifetime for Flat Oval Tube Condensers.
