Heat Exchangers


What Are Heat Exchangers?

Heat Exchangers enable the heat to transfer from within a system to the ambient environment or another system, this makes them a key component of most advanced cooling systems. There are three common types of heat exchanger; air to air, liquid to air, and liquid to liquid. Depending on the application a wide range of liquids can be used in a heat exchanger including water, petroleum products, and coolants. Within the heat exchanger, working fluids are mechanically separated in a way that allows heat to transfer from one to the other so that the heat can be dissipated elsewhere.

Heat exchangers are typically made of heat transfer fins to maximize surface contact and highly engineered channels to optimize fluid flow.
