The present work has the objective of characterizing several coaxial heat exchanger geometries in an automotive cooling system and its effect on the performance coefficient, using R-134a as refrigerant by means of experimental tests. In the first instance, the experimental tests were carried out with different geometries of coaxial interchanges involved in the high-pressure line between the condenser and the expansion valve, as well as the low pressure line between the evaporator and the

The development of the research entails complying with parameters for the acquisition of experimental data and the development of an adequate experimental design. Statistical regressions were developed with R2 of 86.86% and a standard deviation of 2.2 for the low-pressure zone, while for the high pressure zone The regression determined a R2 of 95.17% and a standard deviation of 0.57. As for the COP and the T variables is statistically significant with a value of R2 of 99.97%, thus helping to design the heat exchangers to decrease fuel consumption in vehicles.
