Abstract
The usage of Brazed Plate Heat exchanger is the key component for this SBIR. By utilizing the large amount of heat transfer surface area that a Brazed Plate Heat Exchanger provide, it will minimize the overall size of the heat exchanger system. The goal is to have the heat exchanger operate without failure due to thermal shock, corrosion, or fouling as hot gas enters the system between 500 to 1200F and interacting with non-aqueous liquid coolant at 60 to 130F. The design and development of the brazed plate heat exchanger will revolve around developing new grove pattern on the plate, incorporate a double plate design for thermal shock, and develop a thermal resistance that is built into the system, selection of material to prevent fouling and corrosion.
