TALOS® S80 pipes are specially designed for an operating pressure of up to 80 bar. In order to meet the requirements of high CO2 pressure, TALOS® S80 pipes are manufactured with reinforced wall thicknesses compared to TALOS® ACR. TALOS® S80 can be used where the design pressure of the system does not exceed 80 bar, i.e. the CO2 is not transcritical. In practice, this occurs on both the high and low pressure side for subcritical cycles and on the low pressure side for transcritical cycles.

The known installation practices for copper pipes in refrigeration apply to both systems and installation (see standard EN378).

Internally finned copper pipes

TALOS® IGT copper pipes have internal finning that improves the heat transfer of the coolant and thereby the energy efficiency of the entire HVACR unit. Applications for TALOS® IGT include heat exchangers for condensation and/or evaporation in air conditioning and cooling systems, as well as heat pumps.

HALCOR’s production technology for TALOS® IGT copper tubes enables the production of optimal internal surface designs in a wide range of dimensions – from 16mm outside diameter to the new generation of Microgroove™ tubes with an outside diameter of 5mm or less. Halcor is one of the few manufacturers in the world that can offer such solutions.

HALCOR’s options for complete customer solutions are now being further expanded with the new Tube Heat Transfer Laboratory. The system is designed so that actual measurement of the heat exchange of ACR tubes is possible under controlled test conditions. Critical factors such as heat exchange coefficient and pressure drop are measured using a special system for condensation and evaporation of HFC and natural refrigerants as well as single-phase liquids and liquid mixtures. To simulate specific working conditions, thermal and discharge factors are programmed (coolant flow rate, saturation temperature, steam quality, thermal capacity, etc.). This allows Halcor to analyze the real impact of the design of the internal finning in the pipe.

The Tube Heat Transfer Laboratory essentially gives Halcor the opportunity to use real test results in overall support for heat exchanger manufacturers and thus contribute to the optimization of heat exchanger design:

Improved efficiency
Higher capacity
Reduction of raw materials
Compact heat exchanger sizes
Reducing the amount of coolant

The Tube Heat Transfer Laboratory offers Halcor’s customers the outstanding advantage of mutual cooperation with integrated support and product development.
