We are seeing significant growth in the heat exchanger market. In recent years, there has been a rising demand for heat exchangers in various industries such as power generation, chemical processing, and HVAC. This can be attributed to the increasing need for energy efficiency and the growing emphasis on environmental sustainability.

The heat exchanger market is poised for growth due to the increasing demand for energy-efficient solutions. Businesses across various industries can benefit from investing in heat exchangers, as they offer improved energy efficiency, reduced operating costs, and enhanced equipment performance. By taking advantage of these devices, businesses can not only contribute to environmental sustainability but also improve their overall efficiency and profitability. More and more businesses are exploring the potential of heat exchangers to incorporate them into their operations to stay ahead in the market.

what are they?

Heat exchangers play a crucial role in transferring heat from one liquid or gas to another without them mixing, thereby optimising energy usage and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. They typically consist of a number of thin metal plates with complex channels that the liquid or gas flows between. Chemical etching from Tecan is an efficient way to produce large volumes of precision channels which can be diffusion bonded to create a block.

benefits of heat exchangers

Heat exchangers offer numerous benefits, including improved energy efficiency, reduced operating costs, and enhanced equipment performance. By efficiently transferring heat, heat exchangers enable businesses to optimise their processes and minimise energy wastage. Moreover, they help in maintaining desired temperature levels, which is crucial for industries that rely on precise temperature control. By investing in heat exchangers, businesses can not only reduce their environmental impact but also improve their bottom line.

the benefits of chemical etching from Tecan

By using specialist chemical etching processes, Tecan can produce complex designs, with a precision of ±25µm and with a low tooling cost. We can significantly reduce limitations on channels, ridgetops, headers, collectors and port features. The process also removes mechanical or thermal stress and leaves no compound planarity. Almost any metal can be used, even highly corrosion-resistant ones.

Similar plates can be used in applications such as cold plates and cooling plates for electric vehicles, printed circuit heat exchangers and heat sinks. In addition, they can be found in applications for the food and beverage market, aerospace, electronics and linear motors.
