This paper presents the heat transfer and pressure drop correlations for condensation in micro-fin tubes. Experimental data for eleven micro-fin tubes with different fin dimensions were used, and the refrigerants tested were R22, R123 and R134a. The predicted results using new correlations show good agreement with experimental results within an absolute deviation of ±30%. Experimental results for the micro-fin tubes were also compared with previous correlations for micro-fin Tubes.
