Abstract:

Mezzo fabricates high performance micro tube heat exchangers. In the Phase I program, Mezzo explored substituting the stainless steel micro tubes that typically have been used with polymer micro tubes. Polymer micro tube heat exchangers have significant potential advantages over currently used metal plate-fin heat exchanger technologies. Specifically, polymer micro tube heat exchangers provide extremely high ratios of heat transfer/weight, and offer excellent corrosion resistance. During the Phase I effort Mezzo was able to demonstrate some of these benefits, most importantly extremely high heat transfer/weight performance. In the Phase II effort, Mezzo will continue to improve on the advancements made in the Phase I by further developing the polymer micro tube technology to a point where a full scale replacement military vehicle heat exchanger can be built and tested.
