heat transfer solutions.
We offer custom-made heat transfer solutions. With broad and experienced engineering resources, we can swiftly deliver design ideas followed by the final products that provide efficient heat transfer in the most demanding environments and applications.
The process begins with understanding the client’s needs. We review the initial input data provided with the particular request to verify its consistency and analyze the process requirements and overall constraints. In order to start product design, we need a set of working parameters that the heat exchanger would operate with, such as specific fluids, flows, temperatures, and pressures, as well as information about the application.
We select the most suitable heat transfer technology based on project insights and input data. We either select one of the typical AIC designs or, if necessary, go with a custom-made solution tailored for a specific project.
Once the heat exchanger type is selected, we perform thermal calculations to determine the heat transfer area. Those calculations consider all process constraints, such as allowable pressure drops and dimensional limitations. Depending on the project, we either utilize pre-built models using calculating software (e.g. Aspen) or conduct calculations manually, starting from scratch.
The mechanical design process covers all activities resulting in getting the final form of the heat exchanger. Those activities include selecting appropriate materials, conducting mechanical strength calculations, and setting the system's interface. They are performed under relevant designing codes (i.e. ASME, EN 13345, SELO, additional TEMA standards), consideration of the external constraints, and the product's final destination.
The final design may be verified by conducting advanced numerical simulations (CFD & FEA analysis) or/and by running a series of tests in the thermal laboratory if project complexity requires that.
The process is finalized by issuing a technical offer consisting of the technical drawings, pricing and estimated delivery lead time. If the project does not require special design activities, it is finalized in no more than two days.
