Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Aluminum microchannei heat exchangers show great potentials for many applications in the HVAC&R industry. Controlled atmosphere brazing technol-ogy provides a cost-effective and environmentally friendly manufacturing method for these advanced heat transfer devices. Novel heat exchanger design and continuous development of new materials, as well as stringent requirements in terms of device reliability, impose new challenges on the manufacturing process. The industry is continuously seeking improvements on CAB brazing technology for sustainable manufacturing of a new generation of A1 compact heat exchangers.
