Test Procedure for Internal Heat Exchangers of Mobile Air-Conditioning Systems with R-134a or R-1234yf Refrigerant
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Published February 14, 2023 by SAE International in United States
The purpose of this SAE Standard is to define a common set of thermodynamic test conditions to evaluate internal heat exchangers for use with R-134a and R-1234yf refrigerants in mobile air-conditioning systems. This SAE Standard can be used to test actual vehicle IHX designs or standardized IHX samples, which can be used for comparison based on a common length and shape.
This revision updates the scaling limits for IHX based on bench testing results gained with various lengths of the same cross section design from two suppliers. Results of a very short IHX of approx 206 mm revealed a linear performance scaling. Subsequently the scaling limits were modified to up to a ratio of 1.1 and down to 200 mm and the reporting template of SAE J3174 updated.

Interior Climate Control Vehicle OEM Committee
The Interior Climate Control OEM Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining SAE Standards, Recommended Practices, and Information Reports that serve as guidelines for technicians who service mobile air conditioning systems and operate refrigerant recycling equipment as it applies to automobiles, light trucks and other vehicles with similar R12 systems. Participants in the SAE Interior Climate Control Standards Committee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government, and other interested parties.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
