The better the heat transfer, the less heat resistance with which a structure can be designed, and the higher the specific cooling and heating capacities that can be expected.
The BEKA serpentine copper tubing sections are bent from copper tubes with 10 mm diameters. The copper tubes cannot be less than 60 mm apart. For improved heat distribution, BEKA serpentine copper tubes are therefore always connected to large-surface heat conducting profiles. BEKA serpentine copper tubes achieve thermal contact with the metal ceiling panels via these heat-conducting profiles. To achieve maximum thermal conduction, BEKA bonds the metal ceiling panels with the heat conducting profiles under pressure and temperature. This provides optimal conditions for achieving high cooling and heating capacities.
BEKA capillary tube mats are produced with 10-mm minimum spacing between capillary tubes. The capillary tube mats, which can be produced in almost any width, activate almost the entire panel surface thanks to the large number of capillary tubes. Capillary tube mats are also expediently pre-bonded into the ceiling panels in BEKA’s factory. Since the capillary tubes only have a wall thickness of 0.5 mm and a large number of capillary tubes are simultaneously distributed on the panel surface, the lower thermal conductivity of plastic compared with copper/aluminium components is hardly disadvantageous in terms of specific cooling and heating capacities.
