Abstract:

Most heat exchangers utilized in process industries are made of metals. These heat exchangers are balky, heavy, subject to corrosion, oxidation and microbiological fouling which leads to reduction in performance and increase in cost. The plastic heat exchangers can alleviate some of these problems. However, the commercial plastic heat exchangers are less efficient and have limited operating temperature range. The availability of light weight, compact, corrosion resistant, efficient heat exchanger is particularly important for process industries and transportation sectors. PoroGen Corporation is proposing to develop and demonstrate an advanced all polymeric composite heat exchanger for industrial applications and the transportation sector. The heat exchanger will be constructed from advanced engineering polymer poly (ether ether ketone), PEEK, The advanced polymeric heat exchanger will exhibit advantages of high temperature operating capability, superior heat transfer efficiency, light weight, durability, and contaminant and corrosion resistance. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Utilization of the compact lightweight heat exchanger in transportation sector, aviation and automobile industries, as cabin air coolers, filter coolers and radiators will provide large fuel savings and reduce operating cost. Additional market opportunities for polymeric heat exchanger include applications in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries, with possible integration into generic process equipment such as condensing boilers and refrigeration plants.
