Condensation heat transfer of R245fa in horizontal copper pipe is studied in this paper. In the experimental study, the pipe inner diameter is 4.38 mm, the condensing temperature range from 50∼60°C, mass flow rate ranges from 3.132kg/h to 11.988kg/h, and inlet ranges from 0.89∼1. The research results indicate that the condensation coefficient is rose with the condensing; and it will rise when the inlet quality ranges from 0.89 to 1. Experimental value and the existing two-phase flow correlation are compared in this paper. It shows that the condensation heat transfer coefficient predicted by Haraguchi correlation has a high accuracy relatively. The research provides a foundation to promote development of microchannel high efficiency heat exchanger and it is useful to practical engineering.
