Abstract
More compact and efficient cooling coils are needed to address increased heat management loads on Navy systems. Altex has identified an advanced cooling coil approach that can achieve the needed cooling, at half the typical cooling water flow, at face velocities exceeding 1000 fpm, without condensate carryover. Preliminary tests have shown the heat transfer potential of the concept. Under the proposed Phase I project, the concept will be adapted to the Navy cooling coil application of interest; and the performance and cost benefits of the concept will be determined, versus alternative techniques. In support of this assessment effort, a test article will be built and tested. These efforts will show the feasibility of the concept for cooling coil applications of interest.
