The function of coils in heating and cooling systems is to transfer heat from one medium to another, either extracting heat from a building and expelling it outside or vice versa. Depending on the application, different technologies are available to ensure thermal energy is transferred as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
Modern process improves performance, reduces waste
April 18, 2016
The University of Maryland, through a partnership with 3D Systems and the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Building Technologies Office, has used 3D printing to prototype a new heat exchanger. The product weighs 20 percent less, is 20 percent more efficient, and can be manufactured much quicker, compared to current designs.
Designed to Decrease Bolting Time and Prevent Tightening Failures
May 5, 2015
Engineered for tightening or loosening heavy bolt connections with spindles or long threads, Mountz said its RG (radial gearing) torque multipliers have been specially developed for plate heat exchanger applications. The electric or pneumatic torque multipliers are designed to reduce maintenance time and expense.
At the 2012 AHR Expo, SWEP has introduced its e-business shop to the United States market. SWEP noted that its e-business shop has been up and running for six years and is now available to its dealers in the U.S.
Inspection of tubes up to 4 inches inner diameter in any shape or material can be achieved for boilers, fin fans, and other heat exchangers with the Dolphin G3™. Achieving speed as fast as 10 seconds per tube, the tool features patented acoustic pulse reflectometry (APR) technology.
