  • Patent number: 9032757
    Abstract: A cold storage heat exchanger includes multiple refrigerant tubes, a cold storage container, an inner fin, a cooling air passage and an air-side fin. The inner fin is arranged inside of the cold storage container. The cooling air passage, in which air flows to cool a space, is provided to contact a surface of the refrigerant tube on a side opposite to the cold storage container. The air-side fin is arranged in the cooling air passage and thermally connected to the refrigerant tube. The cold storage container includes multiple recess portions bonded to the inner fin, and multiple protrusion portions located on an outer side of the recess portions. The protrusion portions of the cold storage container are bonded to an outer surface of the refrigerant tube.

  • Patent number: 8978411
    Abstract: An outer surface of a cold-storage container (or a refrigerant tube) is provided with a plurality of protrusion portions or recess portions. A cooling air passage, in which air flows to cool a space to be cooled in a cold storage time and in a cold release time of the cold storage material, is provided to contact a surface of the refrigerant tube on a side opposite to the cold storage container bonded to the refrigerant tube. The refrigerant tubes and the cold storage container form therebetween a cold-storage side air passage by the protrusion portions or the recess portions, such that air flows in the cold-storage side air passage separated from the cooling air passage. For example, the cold-storage side air passage is provided with a slanting space that causes condensed water or ice generated in the cold storage time to be drained along the cold-storage side air passage.

  • Patent number: 8973395
    Abstract: A cold storage heat exchanger includes multiple refrigerant tubes, a cold storage container that is bonded to the refrigerant tube and defines a compartment receiving a cold storage material, and an inner fin arranged inside of the cold storage container. The cold storage container has a portion that stops and fixes the inner fin, and the cold storage container has a space where air is sealed. The space of the cold storage container is located at an upper side of the member that stops and fixes the inner fin. Accordingly, a stress applied to the cold storage container in the expansion of the cold storage material can be reduced.

  • Publication number: 20120285668
    Abstract: Multiple cooling-storage containers are arranged in respective spaces formed between neighboring refrigerant tubes. The cooling-storage container is made of a pair of outer envelope portions, each forming a side wall. Multiple convex portions and concave portions are formed in the side walls so that air passages are formed between refrigerant tubes and the concave portions. A sectional area of the air passage formed in a lower portion of the cooling-storage container below a predetermined height is made larger than that of the air passage formed in an upper portion of the cooling-storage container above the predetermined height.

  • Publication number: 20100065244
    Abstract: An object of the invention is to provide an effective cooling-energy storing performance and a stable cooling-energy radiating performance and to realize a high productivity. An evaporator has a plurality of refrigerant tubes arranged at almost equal intervals to form therebetween accommodating spaces. A plurality of cooling-storage containers are arranged in some of the accommodating spaces and fins are arranged in the remaining accommodating spaces. A cooling-storage unit is formed by one cooling-storage container and two refrigerant tubes arranged at both sides of the cooling-storage container. Each of the cooling-storage container has projections extending from one wall portion to the other wall portion to form heat exchange portions. The cooling-storage container is connected to the refrigerant tubes by soldering material.

  • Publication number: 20090146415
    Abstract: A pipe-joint structure according to the present invention is advantageously used in an air-conditioner system mounted on an automotive vehicle. A compressor including an expansion valve is connected to an evaporator through the pipe-joint structure. The pipe-joint structure includes an inserting portion of a pipe connected to the compressor and a socket connected to the evaporator. The inserting portion is inserted into a hole formed in the socket. A front end of the inserting portion is positioned not to extend into an enlarged portion of the socket to thereby avoid formation of a dead-end small space between the inserting portion of the pipe and the enlarged portion of the socket. Refrigerant entering the socket from the evaporator smoothly flows without stagnation, and thereby noises caused by the refrigerant flow are suppressed.

  • Publication number: 20070039717
    Abstract: A heat exchanger unit has tubes each having a body section and at least one of an inner pipe section and an outer pipe section extending from the body section and defining an opening at an end. Each of the inner pipe section and the outer pipe section has a first portion and a second portion adjacent to the first portion. The tubes are stacked such that the body sections are spaced from each other. Further, the inner pipe section is received in the outer pipe section such that the first portion of the inner pipe section overlaps the first portion of the outer pipe section, and the second portions of the inner and outer pipe sections are located on opposite sides of the overlapped first portions. The first and second portions of the inner pipe section have an outer diameter smaller than an inner diameter of the first and second portions of the outer pipe section.
