  • 10. Thermal Management Selection Criteria
    • Thermal Efficiency
    • Space Constraints
    • Durability
    • Maximum Temperature
    • Vibration Resistance
    • Ease of Fabrication
    • Cost
    • Fire Tests
  • 11. Products – Metal Blankets
    • Consistent dimensions based on tooling – highly reproducible parts
    • Removable to support repair/inspection
    • Continuous use temperature up to 1200F (stainless) or 1600F (Inconel)
    • This process can support price reductions with larger quantities
    • Easily installed, durable parts, which survive fluid splash
    • Requires tooling
    • Re-designs could be costly
    • Heat paths associated with the split lines and edges
  • 12. Products - Integrated System
    • Much like Metal Blankets
    • May be lower cost option compared to full metal blankets
    • Lighter weight than full metal blanket
    • Heat paths from insulated component to outer shell is minimized - improved overall performance of the system
    • Cannot be removed for inspection or repair
    • Parts to be insulated must be shipped to TIG Hitco – logistics/lead time concerns
    • Parts to be insulated will have metal shell welded to them or require some type of claming devise
    • May require stand-off ring for welding outer shell onto the unit
  • 13. Products – Soft Goods
    • Rapid prototyping available
    • Slight re-designs can be easily supported
    • Few heat paths from insulated component to exterior of blanket
    • Complex shapes may be very challenging due to tolerance stack-ups
    • Quilted products available
    • Parts conforming to tight envelope or tolerances are difficult
    • Cloth selection largely determines cost, durability, weather resistance, and temperature use limit
    • May be susceptible to fluid ingress
      • Silicon based fabric – 500F
      • Teflon based fabric – 600F
  • 14. Products – Molded Goods
    • Consistent dimensions based on tooling – highly reproducible parts
    • Few heat paths
    • Easily installed, durable parts, which survive fluid splash
    • Well suited to less complex geometries or flat surfaces
    • Requires tooling
    • Re-designs could be costly
    • Continuous temperature use limit 450-500F
  • 15. Design
    • Application requirements and environment will largely determine material selection, product configuration and production process
    • Quantity projections will also affect design
    • TIG Hitco Engineering is Project Based
    • Most parts are modeled in CATIA
      • Drawings
