Title
(EN) MICROCHANNEL HEAT EXCHANGER
(FR) ÉCHANGEUR THERMIQUE À MICROCANAUX
Abstract
(EN)
A microchannel heat exchanger is provided that is configured to drain condensate out of the microchannel heat exchanger. The microchannel heat exchanger has tube sections that are positioned at an angle with respect to a horizontal plane when the microchannel heat exchanger has a vertical orientation. The fins between the tube sections can be positioned perpendicular to the angled tube sections or can be positioned perpendicular to the horizontal plane.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un échangeur thermique à microcanaux configuré pour drainer la condensation hors de l'échangeur thermique à microcanaux. L'échangeur thermique à microcanaux a des sections de tube positionnées selon un certain angle par rapport à un plan horizontal lorsque l'échangeur thermique à microcanaux a une orientation verticale. Les ailettes entre les sections de tube peuvent être positionnées perpendiculairement aux sections de tube inclinées ou peuvent être positionnées perpendiculairement au plan horizontal.
