The purpose of the present paper is to present research and development within the area of mini- and micro channels in Sweden. A review is made of the historical development of highly compact heat exchangers within the country, starting with plate heat exchangers. The main focus is on the research performed at the Royal Institute of Technology, where mini-channel research has been going on since more than ten years. Single-phase flow as well as two-phase flow is treated, both in single channels and in full-size heat exchangers with multiple parallel channels.
