FAQ This section is updated with FAQ from our customers

Is it binding? Do I need to pay when registering?

Absolutely not. Register your interest by the 31st of May. Registering is not binding for the moment, Unilab is just checking the interest for the solution. If we reach 50 companies interested, Unilab will contact each interested company and present a proposal. Please see the “ROADMAP” section for more information .

How much will the cost be?

The final price of the “Microchannel Evaporator” module will be calculated after the dedicated time window closes. The higher the number of customers requesting the tool, the lower the entry price. We are trying to reach the target of 50 customer to allow everyone to participate at the lowest possible price. Unilab needs at least 50 customers subscribing to kickstart the project.

Unilab will greenlight the project only if the number of 50 users is reached.

What happens if I don’t join in time?

It will still be possible to join, however you may loose the special price reserved for the first 50 customers.

What happens if Unilab does not reach 50 Customers?

The development window will close and we will have to postpone the development until a later date to be determined.

In alternative, if we still manage to gather an acceptable amount of interested customers, Unilab will propose to the intersted participant a contribution price which may be higher than the target price.

What are the benefits from participating? If you Register your interest and later decide to contribute, you will have the following advantages:

Get the current Condenser module

Get 1 license of the current Unilab Microchannel Condenser module included in the cost, and delivered at the payment of the contribution fee.

Access to beta versions

Have access to the first tool beta, and provide us with feedback for the improvement of the tool, which will be evaluated by Unilab as potential future improvements.

Be the first

Be one of the first companies to benefit from the tool

A QUICK LOOK AT THE SITUATION WITH MICROCHANNEL EVAPORATORS

Until now, a real software development for microchannel evaporators has not been addressed, mainly due to lack of demand from the market and constructional problems of this type of exchanger. However in the last 5 years the construction problems seem to have been solved, and the interest from the market is increasing. Practical applications at present are few and still on the experimental side.

The Microchannel evaporator has a main problem. Since the microchannel evaporator is a cooling coil, the main problem is that condensation forms, the condensation stops on the plates and acts as an insulator, thus needing to be removed.

As the microchannel plates are generally placed horizontally, it is an area where water stops. Therefore, the air velocity should be increased so that the air carries away the water, and the plate treatment should also be hydrophilic.
About 6 years ago in Korea, some experimental studies began, in which instead of putting the fin horizontally it was placed vertically.

Microchannel Evaporators are becoming a necessary technology, especially used in the automotive air conditioning market within conventional and electric vehicles.

Also in the field of data center conditioning many applications are being tested in which instead of traditional coils, Microchannels are used both on the condenser and evaporator side, however we are also in an experimental phase.

It must be said that the close control units that have an evaporating coil exploit no more than 20% of the surface of that coil: it is therefore clear that if we replace that evaporating coil with a MICROCHANNEL EVAPORATOR, the advantages are enormous because it is possible to exploit the microchannel only for the surface that is needed, with enormous savings.

From a computational point of view, Unilab has all the resources to deal with it, being Evaporation and Condensation very similar as application processes. The Unilab MICROCHANNEL software already allows to deal with Condensers. Therefore we have the knowledge to do it but a good investment is needed. 

The development costs are quite high, and difficult to sustain for a single company: however, as made successfully with other software (e.g. Transcritical Co2 Gas Coolers) we decided to launch the request and gather a group of companies interested in the implementation, to help us with the development so that we can deliver the calculation by the end of 2021 at the latest, and distribute the cost so that everyone can sustain a little expense for starting the common development.
