Micro-channel Heat Exchanger - MCHE™

ref. Micro-channel Heat Exchanger - MCHE™

Micro-channel technology provides greater system efficiency and up to 50 percent less refrigerant charge, allowing design engineers to optimize new systems to satisfy current and pending government regulations. Additional benefits include less weight, smaller size, minimum galvanic corrosion and performance degradation over the life of the application.
