  • Patent number: 10697354
    Abstract: Provided is a heat exchanger including a core portion configured to include an inlet header tank and an outlet header tank having a space, in which cooling water is stored and flows, formed therein and formed in a height direction, a plurality of tubes having both ends connected to the header tanks to form a cooling water channel, and fins interposed between the tubes, in which a core portion of the heater exchanger is formed to block only a part of a bypass area of a part where inlet/outlet header tanks are positioned to reduce a pressure loss of air which is a cooled fluid while minimizing a reduction in heat radiation performance of the heat exchanger and structural rigidity of the core portion is increased by a reinforcing structure formed at an outer side of the core portion to improve durability.

  • Patent number: 10641559
    Abstract: Provided is a heat exchanger. The heat exchanger includes: a core portion configured to have a cooling water channel provided therein; a housing configured to have a concave shape to have the core portion inserted thereinto so that the core portion is housed therein and have one side provided with an air inlet into which air is introduced and the other side provided with an air outlet through which the air is discharged; and a sealing member configured to be interposed between an outer side of the core portion and an inner side of the housing to seal between the core portion and the housing, thereby preventing air from being bypassed between the core portion and the housing to improve heat exchange efficiency and heat exchange performance.

  • Patent number: 10625564
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an outdoor heat exchanger, and more particularly, to a down flow type outdoor heat exchanger having channels of at least three paths in a heat pump system for vehicles, in which a flux distribution means protruded in a height direction is further formed in a lower tank in which the channel is changed from an upward direction to a downward direction or from a downward direction to an upward direction to block some area of a lower portion thereof so as to prevent a refrigerant from being non-uniformly distributed while a flux is concentrated toward a rear side of the channel due to a fluid inertia in an area in which the flow path is changed, thereby delaying frosting upon heating.

  • Patent number: 10220673
    Abstract: Provided is a cold-storage heat exchanger. The cold-storage heat exchanger includes a pair of header tanks, and tubes which are arranged in three rows with respect to the direction of the flow of air and connected at opposite sides thereof to the header tanks. A cold-storage medium is stored in the tubes that are disposed in a middle row, and refrigerant circulates through the tubes that are disposed in front and rear rows. Therefore, the cold-storage medium can effectively store cold-energy transferred from the refrigerant. When the engine of a vehicle is stopping, the cold-storage heat exchanger can discharge the cold-energy that has been stored into the passenger compartment of the vehicle, thus preventing the temperature in the passenger compartment from rapidly increasing, thereby creating pleasant air-conditioned conditions for a user, and minimizing the energy and time required to re-cool the passenger compartment.
