Tubeside Heat Transfer Lab

Comprehensive coil performance modeling

Our tubeside heat transfer lab is where we determine the tubeside heat transfer and pressure drop characteristics under single-phase convective flow, evaporation, and condensation conditions for selected refrigerants. By combining this data with data from our wind tunnel test lab, we're able to accurately model the airside and fluid side performance of a coil, giving you a complete picture of what you can expect from your equipment.
