UK Heat Transfer Society – President’s Lecture

Martin is Founder and Managing Director of CALGAVIN Limited, formed in 1980 to research and develop thermal solutions to improve the performance of tubular heat exchangers and reactors. He developed the now widely used hiTRAN tube-side enhancement systems. On what will surely be an entertaining and colourful stroll through a rich and deep history of the heat transfer industry, and in his own indefatigable manner, Martin will talk about aspects of technology development and application engineering. From humble beginnings to what has now become a science and research lead business of the future. Martin will punctuate his presentation with images of the past when international communication was by telex, slide rules were in vogue, the first 386 chip computer arrived and even before HSE was considered to be important!! Digression and even touches of nostalgia will undoubtedly ensue. Martin will idiosyncratically finish the evening with a toast to British Manufacturing and Engineering and to the future of the United Kingdom.
