EVENT – Advances in Heat Exchangers
Advances in Heat Exchangers for Heating and Cooling
On the 8th March 2018, the SIRACH Network will visit the Kelvion research and development laboratory in Fareham for an event that will focus on advances in heat exchangers for heating and cooling.
Delegates will have the opportunity to tour of the state-of-the-art testing facility that includes an airflow test rig, an inner calorimeter room, an environmental chamber, as well as a connected, smaller air flow test chamber to enable measuring of heat transfer coefficients.
A hot-water system for testing dry coolers and a refrigeration pack for testing coolers and condensers. In addition is an R507 refrigeration pack, a state-of-the-art transcritical CO2 refrigeration plant and an X-ray micro-tomography system.

This conference is held by Sustainable Innovation in Refrigeration Air Conditioning and Heat pumps (SIRACH) Network.
SIRACH disseminates the work of the ‘Interdisciplinary centre for Storage, Transformation and Upgrading of Thermal Energy (i-STUTE)’ and is a networking organisation for promoting new technology in refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pumps – increasing the flow of information between those with problems to solve and those with the ideas to solve them.
The i-STUTE mission is to advance progress to a low carbon emission future through integration and innovation of heating and cooling technologies.
