New generation heat exchangers
Our engineering team took on the challenge of creating a next-generation heat exchanger that is both more compact and more efficient than a standard plate heat exchanger.
This is in response to the needs of the automotive and aerospace industries, where these very parameters are crucial.
Instead of traditional exchanger plates, we used a Triply Periodic Minimal Surface (TPMS) structure.
This unique structure further turbulises the flow, resulting in intensified heat transfer.
- Reduction in volume by 27% while increasing efficiency relative to a standard heat exchanger.
- Material: 316L stainless steel
- Technology: 3D printing using LPBF technology
