Abstract
More compact, efficient, lighter weight and lower cost radiators are desirable for the Army Ml 09A6 cooling system. At Energy Innovations, Inc.(EII), we have invented new thermal technology using innovative materials and designs which has potential to provide the high quality radiator for the Army. These new heat exchangers are characterized by technical merits such as high cooling capacity, low device profile, overall compactness, low weight, etc. In Phase I, investigation into the feasibility of adapting these new thermal technology to for the M109A6 cooling system will be made and tests for the performance of our new radiators will assessed. It is anticipated that our radiators will have great advantages over conventional tube-fin radiators for the M109A6 cooling system. Upon completion of Phase I, II, and III, it is anticipated that our radiators and heat exchangers have great advantages over conventional tube-fin radiators. A wide variety of applications for our radiators and heat exchangers can be found in, transportation, power generation, oil field, refinery and petrochemical processes, HVAC, automotive, steel and metal working, pulp and paper, textile, and food processing.
