PLASTIC AS A HIGH-PERFORMANCE HEAT TRANSMITTER
Heat exchangers can present themselves as a bundle of copper pipes: tried and tested, heavy, smooth inside, lacking flexibility.
Let’s rethink this: think heat exchangers made of plastic. We design them to be slender, modular and thin-walled. By combining various production methods and processes, we enable highly complex, interlacing geometries. These generate turbulent flows instead of laminar flows and have a large interior surface, which enables optimum heat transfer – all this with low weight.
Bionic structures in the plastic further expand the possibilities. They are similar to the channel structure of a leaf, for example. In a heat accumulator, these structures reduce the pressure drop to a minimum thanks to minimal flow resistances. Ultimately, we have converted insulating material into a high-performance heat transmitter – just one example of the inventive ideas conceived at Etimex.
We take on challenges that redefine technology… Etimex shapes the future with you!
