Competent engineering consultation for heat transfer analysis. Using a combination of research, industrial manufacturing and practical engineering in the field on heat exchange equipment, CALGAVIN® can help model the performance of thermal plant to enable its optimisation.
From Study to revamp, with a collective experience of over 70 years the team at CALGAVIN are ready to answer your questions.
Analysing existing exchanger performance and evaluating specifications on new designs with a focus on searching for improved efficiency.
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) can be used to solve combined fluid flow and heat transfer problems and adds value when identifying underperformance.
CALGAVIN®’s supervision team is available to ensure correct and completed installation is carried out for their heat transfer products.
Skilled engineers at your disposal
Heat transfer is at the heart of CALGAVIN®. Our engineering team have designed new heat exchangers, verified designs and modelled existing performance of heat exchangers in the field. With knowledge of various TEMA and API type heat exchanger configurations, the aim is to provide designs that not only meet the thermal requirements but also allow straight forward maintenance of the units once commissioned.
In addition to assessing the heat transfer and pressure drop required, our engineers will look at the suitability of correlations and will address issues such as fouling mechanisms, flow distribution, phase stratification and mechanical fatigue where considered relevant. These are sometimes overlooked and not considered when using the assumptions used for standard heat transfer correlations in design.
An audit approach of heat exchangers is taken and is especially important when modelling and proposing solutions to our customers for underperforming existing exchangers.
Various team members have specific skills such that you can be confident CALGAVIN will have a solution to fit your needs.
