(54)Refrigerant distributor for heat exchanger and heat exchanger


(57) A refrigerant distributor for a heat exchanger is disclosed. The refrigerant distributor comprises: a pipe for distributing a refrigerant, the pipe having a channel therein in which the refrigerant flows. The channel has at least one portion having reduced cross-section area. With the above configuration, the distributor relieves the layering of refrigerant flowing in a distributing pipe and mixes the vapor-liquid refrigerant relatively uniformly.
