How to choose copper pipe for the air conditioner? Dubai, UAE

A reliable copper pipe has a number of characteristics: ductility, a high degree of cleaning, ease of installation, no dents and cracks, resistance to corrosion and pressure drops. The ends of copper tubes should be closed with special plugs, otherwise, dirt and debris can easily get inside.

Copper pipe for air conditioning systems is selected according to the following parameters:

  • type;
  • size.

Industrial enterprises produce two main types of copper pipes:

  • annealed or soft;
  • unannealed or hard.

Annealed copper pipes

Usually, annealed copper pipes are used in air conditioners. Their thick walls can withstand almost any pressure, and they are resistant to sudden temperature changes. These pipes can take various forms, so they are considered to be the most convenient for installing.

One of the most frequent requests – copper pipe 15 meter, although pipes sizes vary from 15 to 50 m. Their advantage is in low ability to deform.

 Features of insulating copper tubes in air conditioning systems

Corrosion resistance stands for the matter ability to stay against rust. To clarify, it determines the pipe lifespan. Take a tube of a low corrosion resistance metal, and you will soon need to replace it.

Copper is highly corrosion resistant due to its unordinary feature. When contacting the oxygen, there appears an oxide coating that protects the metal from corrosion. Thus, when you use, for example, AC Copper Pipe size ⅜ for your HVAC system, you can be sure the pipe will last for at least 50 years.

The use of additional insulation of copper tubes in cooling systems eliminates the risk of accumulation of condensate generated during the operation of air conditioners in critically large volumes. One of the elements of the insulation system is a special safety valve. It is a black tubular element about 2 meters long, made of foamed rubber (non-porous) or special polyethylene. This valve performs the function of protecting copper tubes in the temperature range from -150ºС to + 150ºС.
