Cross Flow Heat Exchanger

Dr. Brandner, Prof.-Dr. Dittmeyer, Dr. Schubert, Dipl.-Ing. Wenka


The exchanger has heat transfer regions formed in a region of a channel group that comprises a set of channels. Another channel group comprises a set of channels for carrying heat carrier fluid stream. The channels of the two groups are arranged in planes, where channels of the latter group exhibit meander-shaped or linear queue-shaped channel detours. Each channel of the former group comprises intersections, where the heat transfer regions are arranged at the intersections. The channels of the groups comprise a constant flow cross section over an entire channel length. The channels anfd the channel groups are designed as micro-channels and micro-channel groups, respectively.
