Delphi Thermal Multi Port Folded Tube Condenser
2012 - PACE Award Winner
What: Delphi Thermal Multi Port Folded Tube Condenser
Judge's Citation: The multi-port folded tube condenser, or MFTC, replaces the extruded tube process with a much simplified, shorter, less costly process that involves folding of a metal strip. Manufacturing steps are reduced from 3 to one, and time is reduced from 10 hours to one hour. MFTC also allows use of superior materials that reduce defects and improves corrosion performance. Weight, acoustical noise, and vibration performance improve as well. Overall, the simplified manufacturing process that MFTC represents in a game changer in the heat exchanger business.
