DURA-ER: ID Grooved/Rifle Tube

An inner groove copper tube, also known as a grooved copper tube, is a type of copper tubing that features internal grooves or ridges along its inner surface. These grooves are strategically designed to enhance the heat transfer efficiency of the tube.

The inner grooves create turbulence within the fluid flowing through the tube, which disrupts laminar flow and promotes better mixing of the fluid layers. This increased turbulence enhances heat transfer by improving the convection process, allowing for more efficient cooling or heating of the fluid.

Inner groove copper tubes find applications in various heat exchanger systems, air conditioning units, refrigeration systems, and other thermal management applications where efficient heat transfer is essential. They are particularly useful in applications where compact size and high thermal performance are critical design considerations.

Due to their superior thermal performance and versatility, inner groove copper tubes are a popular choice for engineers and designers looking to optimize the efficiency of heat exchange systems.
