Over the decade that they’ve been in service, heat exchangers have gained a reputation for providing reliable, high-performance thermal management for a wide variety of applications. Their success has helped countless companies dramatically reduce overhead by lowering energy costs, free up employee time by reducing the need for maintenance, and much more. However, like any product, heat exchangers and their successful operation rely on how well they’re manufactured. To ensure a consistently high level of quality, heat exchanger manufacturers focus on every detail and test every component before creating a final product.
Analyzing the Design
As heat exchangers grew in popularity, they also became more versatile. With the ability to absorb and transfer waste heat without relying on chilled or compressed air, the innovative thermal management units can be applied to a wide range of applications. However, each of those applications comes with a unique set of operating standards and thermal management requirements. To meet those needs, more heat exchangers with varying specifications can be created according to a given application’s unique restrictions. Therefore, the first step is to thoroughly analyze the application’s design, implementation, footprint for the heat exchanger, and more before designing the most appropriate solution.
Testing with Rapid Prototyping
After various engineering and thermal management experts finalize a heat exchanger’s design, they can test it by rapidly prototyping each component. Using advanced 3D printing technology, the company can create lifelike models that can be fitted and tested in a real-word setting. This helps eliminate any unforeseen errors or miscalculations that could impact the heat exchanger’s functionality once it’s been created and implemented.
