Intro & Service Considerations for PHE, Box Coolers, Fined & Tube Coolers, Double Tube Heat Exchangers (Parts 1-4)

This presentation breaks down the basics of Plate Heat Exchangers including the different types of PHE, and service techniques. It also includes an introduction to box coolers, finned tube oil coolers, and fin tube technology.

The Ever-Changing DPF Service Market

DPFs are unique in that they require regular service, are prone to failure, and are expensive to replace. This situation creates a unique opportunity for service shops to add value to their customers by offering solutions for managing their aftertreatment systems. DPF cleaning is the center point of the service event, and it creates additional opportunities in the areas of diagnostics, repairs, replacement part and component sales, and end of life recycling.

Technology & Opportunities in Coils

Learn more about the markets, applications, and technologies for coil products. Raphael Taveras of Industria Core covers coil applications for deep freezers, refrigeration and air handling units. Technologies include direct expansion coils, chiller water/ steam coils, micro-channel coils. Session also goes into special coatings as  well as measurement and information requirements. 

TitanX’s View of the IAM Market

In this session, TitanX uses input from several IAM market specialists as well as their own experience to provide an overview of a complex arena. They discuss areas including why does an end-user buy what he/she does and from whom? The presentation also identifies the various levels of the IAM value stream; what share of the aftermarket goes to the OEM’s service organizations versus the traditional WD, etc.

How Does Your Fin Shape Up?

Bob Carlo from Voss Mfg. Co. addresses the critical role fins play in the performance and endurance of the plate heat exchanger. He provides general information about the various n types, applications, shapes, materials, stiffeners, dimples, louvers, and other elements of construction and design. Learn why specific fin types are used in heat exchange applications for products such as oil coolers, charge-air-coolers, bar and plate heat exchange and common radiators.

What Does Durability Testing Tell the Radiator Shop?

The scope of this technical session is to show the radiator shop technician how the results from durability testing – pressure cycle, thermal cycle & vibration – can help them to better identify the root cause of a customer’s failed radiator or CAC. Just replacing a failed unit with a new one will certainly ‘fix’ the immediate problem. But what if the failure was a result of vibration inputs caused from a worn out isolator? By looking at what elements fail in a bench test, it can help guide the technician in identifying the ‘real’ problem and not only sell a new heat exchanger but also allow them the opportunity to fix and bill for additional work.

Manufacturing Aluminum Heat Transfer Technology Components

Yves Larouche and David Gaudreault from SKL Aluminum Technology cover the basics of the brazing process, SKL tubing, microchannel vs. bar plate, liquid to liquid exchangers, remote cool- ing applications & conversions, expansion joints, and “recoring” techniques, machined headers vs stamped & strategic production planning.

Wind Tunnel Testing & How Its Related Design Information Impacts You

Test data and its uses do have practical application for service. Joseph Yeremian, President of Thermodyne Engineering Ltd. covers how test data relates to the service world. Learn more about how test data relates to the service world. You'll also see how data is used for sizing and predicting the performance of aftermarket radiators and in general heat exchangers such as oil cooler and charge air coolers.
