Coil design for air conditioning solutions

Trane has added a rugged microchannel aluminum coil construction to its HVAC units.

04/27/2012


Packaged air conditioning solutions from Trane feature a rugged microchannel aluminum coil construction to increase reliability and sustainability. The more robust microchannel coil replaces copper and aluminum tube-and-fin condenser coils. The microchannel coils reduce refrigerant charge by as much as 50%, creating a healthier and greener environment. The designs also leverage reusable packaging in the manufacturing process to reduce landfill waste. Trane packaged air conditioning solutions featuring the microchannel coil include the Voyager II (12.5 to 25 tons), Voyager Commercial (27 to 50 tons), and the IntelliPak line (20 to 75 tons). Additional large rooftop platforms will follow later this year. The high-efficiency Voyager II is particularly useful in restaurant and large retail applications. The IntelliPak and Voyager Commercial are highly flexible rooftop solutions featuring multiple factory installed offerings that make them ideal for diverse applications, including malls, offices, manufacturing, healthcare, and primary/secondary education facilities.
