Title (EN) AN ADDITIVELY MANUFACTURED HEAT EXCHANGER INCLUDING FLOW TURBULATORS DEFINING INTERNAL FLUID PASSAGEWAYS
(FR) ÉCHANGEUR THERMIQUE FABRIQUÉ PAR ADDITION COMPRENANT DES TURBULATEURS DE FLUX DÉFINISSANT DES PASSAGES DE FLUIDE INTERNES
Abstract:
(EN) An additively manufactured heat exchanger and a method of manufacturing the same are provided. The heat exchanger includes a plurality of wails spaced apart to define a plurality of fluid passageways and a plurality of flow turbulators extending between two adjacent walls through the fluid passageways. The walls and flow turbulators define one or more internal fluid passageways in thermal communication with the plurality of fluid passageways which receive a flow of auxiliary heat exchange fluid for enhancing the heat transfer efficiency of the heat exchanger.
(FR) L'invention concerne un échangeur thermique fabriqué par addition et son procédé de fabrication. L'échangeur thermique comprend une pluralité de parois espacées pour définir une pluralité de passages de fluide et une pluralité de turbulateurs de flux s'étendant entre deux parois adjacentes à travers les passages de fluide. Les parois et les turbulateurs de flux définissent un ou plusieurs passages de fluide internes en communication thermique avec la pluralité de passages de fluide qui reçoivent un écoulement de fluide d'échange thermique auxiliaire pour améliorer l'efficacité de transfert thermique de l'échangeur thermique.
