An investigation of heat transfer coefficient during refrigerants condensation in vertical pipe microchannel
This article presents the results of experimental research of R404A, R407C and R410A high-pressure refrigerants condensation in vertical pipe microchannels with an internal diameter dw below 1 mm. The study determined the local and average heat transfer coefficient in the full range of vapor quality, x = 1-0. On the basis of experimental investigations, the dependence of heat transfer coefficient on the vapor quality x, the mass flux density G and the channel internal diameter dw was obtained.
