Project: Flexible Capillary Heat Exchangers

Mechanically flexible polymer capillaries with a small diameter, usually below 1.0 mm, show an exceptionally high heat transfer coefficients if used as the heat transfer elements. Several hundreds or even thousands capillaries are used to form an equivalent of a shell or tube meal based heat exchanger. These polymeric heat exchangers give realistic promise for a novel product with much reduced cost and weight when compared to traditional aluminium or copper based heat exchangers.
