Trends in next-generation heat exchangers for heat pump systems


Development of air conditioning products to address environmental and air pollution concerns is now
an imperative for the industry. Heat exchangers, which are widely used in room air conditioners, packaged
air conditioners, heat pump water heaters and other applications, are one of the most important
components and affect the performance, reliability (quality) and cost of the product. This paper, therefore,
describes trends in the development of heat exchangers by air conditioning manufacturers, focusing
on actual cases.
