At Hailiang, we provide two primary aluminum tube types: aluminum micro-port extrusions and industrial aluminum profiles.
Micro-port extrusions, also known as multi-channel tubes, are a thin walled, flat tube made from highly refined aluminum bars, which have been refined using hot extrusion and zinc spraying processes. Micro-port extrusions are a core material in micro-channel heat exchangers, as well as various pipe fittings to carry refrigerants in air conditioning systems.
Industrial aluminum profiles are made through a melting and extrusion treatment of aluminum bars. With different element proportions, the mechanical performance and applications of the aluminum profile will change. Generally, an industrial aluminum profile refers to any aluminum profile, with the exception of those used in doors, windows, curtain walls, interior decorations and buildings.
