COMHEX©, compact heat exchangers with micro-channels
Stiral designs and develops custom exchangers to meet the specific demands of industry.
We have designed the COMHEX© innovative heat exchanger to overcome many of the problems highlighted by industry, in particular :
- Compact footprint
- Modular design
- Laminar flow
- Custom load loss
- Optimal transfer coefficient
These micro-channel heat exchangers, which rate as plate heat exchangers, represent a real technological breakthrough in terms of performance and small footprint.
They may be used for applications involving liquid-to-liquid, liquid-to-gas and two-phase exchange.
They can cope with a wide range of power ratings, thanks to their modular design.
Their very large operating range means they can be used in applications subject to widely varying flow-rate, temperature or pressure regimes.
The choice of materials is flexible, dependent on the conditions of use. Several architectures are possible, the better to cater for the demands of our customers.
The high performance is due to the relatively large heat-exchange surface compared with the small volume of fluid. Thanks to this characteristic our exchangers are well placed to meet requirements for reducing the use of coolants in heating, ventilation and air-conditioning applications.
Being light (with a comparable material) and compact, they are ideal for embedded applications where weight and footprint are major technological and economic issues, respectively in the aerospace and car industries.
