About Eco Refrigerant Al

Why Now, Why Aluminium?

Why Aluminium is the best alternative material for HVAC & R:
  • Stable and low price compared to using copper.
  • Provides excellent metal properties with the advancement of technologies.
  • Have excellent formability characteristics that make it highly suitable for use in HVAC & R.
  • Improves system weight significantly in HVAC & R applications.
  • Improves energy consumption & efficiency since thermal conductivity ratio is lower, hence heat gain & loss is lower.
  • Pure Aluminum lasts longer than other metals when use in an appropriate way.
  • Moreover, Aluminum can be recycled & view as a resource preservation.

Characteristics & Advantages of Aluminium

Flaring
  • Requires less strength to flare
  • Higher wall thickness (G18) provides better tensile strength
  • Using the same set of tools to flare copper

Brazing
  • No argon gas, wire spool, gloves, shield or electricity required
  • Special brazing rods allow up to 45-50 joints per rod (50cm rod)
  • Fast, easy & secured joints in 15 seconds
  • No turning of torches or rounding up gaps 4 times faster than brazing copper
  • No additional flux is required
  • Uses the same torch and mapp gas
  • Substantial saving on gas, time and brazing rod due to lower melting point of aluminium
  • Joints are stronger than main material
  • No need for nitrogen purging for oxidisation

Bending
  • Requires less strength to bend
  • Light weight & offers better flexibility than copper
  • Does not kink as easily compared to copper
  • Using the same set of bending tools as copper

Corrosion
  • 48 hour salt water test before shipment
  • Corrosion rate is a lot less than copper
  • Oxidisation rate is also lower, making pipes clean and bright when exposed

Swaging or Expanding
  • 30% expansion from original OD
  • Using the same set of swaging tools as copper

Thermal Conductivity
  • Lower than copper by almost 50% which means less rate of condensation
