The paper presents the results of experimental investigation of Novec 649 refrigerant condensation in tube minichannels. This is a low-pressure refrigerant. This investigations are basis for flow structures visualization during condensation in pipe minichannels. The local and the average values of pressure drop (Δp/L) and heat transfer coefficient α in the whole range of the changes of vapour quality (x = 1 ÷ 0) were calculated. On the basis of the obtained test results there was illustrated the influence of the vapour quality x, the mass flux density G and the inner diameter of channel d changes on the studied parameters. These results were compared with the calculation results based on the dependencies of other authors.
