This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 691624
The objective of the project is to provide a direct comparison between the different types of absorbers and to analyse the performance of the MPE design absorber. In addition the project shall prove the durability of an aluminium tube on aluminium sheet absorber that will lead to substantial cost savings in comparison to using copper tubes.
The project is pending local approvals but it is scheduled to be carried out during second half of 2013 and to be completed early 2014.
Aluminium has for many years been the material of choice for heat exchange applications within the automotive industry (radiators, air conditioning, charge air cooling, oil cooling) and since the early 2000 years also within stationary applications for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. This development is driven by increasing copper prices.
