Heat Exchangers

There are three common types of heat exchanger; air to air, liquid to air, and liquid to liquid. In addition to these, Aavid is also the industry expert in phase change heat exchangers. We work with a wide range of liquids based upon the application, including but not limited to water, petroleum products, and coolants. Aavid offers the widest range of fabrication options in the industry from semi-custom to fully custom heat exchangers in a variety of configurations. Learn more about how heat exchangers work. 

Heat Exchangers are just part of a complete system. Aavid is known for advanced cooling technologies and engineering and can design and manufacture your full thermal management solution for maximum efficiency. To get help optimizing your system or heat exchanger, please tell us your current thermal challenge and requirements and an Aavid Engineer will contact you shortly.
