Title: HEAT EXCHANGE UNIT AND METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING A HEAT EXCHANGE UNIT
Abstract:
Heat exchange unit, in particular for a cooling apparatus, comprising a metal sheet (2), at least one metal exchange tube (3) supported on said sheet (2), and fastening means for fastening the tube (3) to the sheet (2), said unit (1) being bent with respect to at least one bend line (7a, 7b, 7c, 7d). The fastening means comprise a cover (4) covering the entire or almost the entire length of the tube (3) and the cover (4) is fixed to the sheet by means of adhesive. The surface of the cover (4) in contact with the tube (3) has no adhesive, therefore said surface having a coefficient of friction that allows sliding said tube (3) under said cover (4) when bending the unit (1) with respect to said at least one bend line (7a, 7b, 7c, 7d). Method for manufacturing the heat exchange unit.
