Brewers Reap the Advantages of Smaller-Diameter Copper Tubes

MicroGroove Excels in Process Cooling Application

New York, New York (June 8, 2016) – The International Copper Association announced that MicroGroove copper tubes are now being used in the condenser coils of turnkey refrigeration systems from PRO Refrigeration.

The refrigeration systems are used to cool wort, control fermentation and chill conditioning tanks. Smaller-diameter copper tubes offer improved performance in a smaller footprint compared to larger-diameter copper tubes or aluminum microchannel tubes.

MicroGroove Technology Unlocks Potential of Ultra-Low GWP Air conditioning and Refrigeration Systems, Says the International Copper Association

Smaller-Diameter Copper Tubes are the Key to Efficient Use of Propane in ACR Products

New York, New York (June 6, 2016) – Also known as R-290, propane (C3H8) is a flammable hydrocarbon with an ultralow global warming potential (GWP) index of only 3.3, that is, many hundreds or thousands of times lower than conventional refrigerants.

Smaller Diameter Copper Tubes Expand into Large Applications

MicroGroove Is Suitable for Coil Size from Small to Very Large

New York, New York (8 April 2016) – MicroGroove technology is expanding into all sizes of heat exchanger coils from small to very large. Not many years ago there were just a handful of MicroGroove applications but that’s no longer the case. MicroGroove smaller-diameter copper tubes can be found in a myriad of products, with tube lengths ranging from a few inches to several meters; and capacities ranging from hundreds of watts to hundreds of kilowatts.

Range of Applications Benefitting from MicroGroove Smaller-Diameter Copper Tubes Widens, Says the International Copper Association
