One of the advantages of an OEM heat exchanger supplier is access to the various truck and engine manufacturers. TitanX's access allows us to better understand the technical aspects surrounding a particular eld-failure event such as the Cascadia radiator prior to a redesign in mid-2013. During this session, TitanX reviews the fact finding activities and the subsequent actions that ended in a superior solution.
Power generation has been a global hot spot in the world of heat exchange products and service. Economic and environmental challenges have driven recent innovations in cooling systems designs. In this presentation, you'll get a look at popular power generating designs and the thermal management products used to meet the service and duty challenges.
In Part 2 of "Radiator Math," David Bienvenu explains how calculations are used to determine the triangular pitch of heat exchanger tubes, a fan blade angle, belt length using shaft centers, and pulley sizes or shaft centers knowing pulley sizes and belt length.
All the math you ever needed to know you learned between kindergarten and 8th grade. But you probably forgot some of it! Radiator Service Co.'s David Bienvenu explains everyday product calculations and formulas that will reduce project time, increase efficiency, and help insure accuracy.
Independent consulting engineer Mark Meller addresses the different types of metals and designs used in heat exchange and why. Materials covered include: copper, brass, aluminum, and steel. He explains fin and tube configurations and their applications as inline and staggered tube arrangements, staggered tube arrangements, bumped fins, louvered fins, lanced offset fins, serpentine fins and plat fins. The session also covers tube size and its impact on performance.
The presentation covers plate material selection (soft, hard, pickled, black, galvanized, SS 304 vs 316, gauges). It also breaks down bending for radiator tanks, side anchors and shrouds. Bending information will include selection of tool, blank length calculations, tolerance variations, radius selection, manual brake set-up, bending sequences as well considerations for single part, multi-part planning and duplication of parts.
Do you the principles of heat transfer? This presentation breaks down the basics of how and why heat exchangers work.
