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