  • Patent number: 9151547
    Abstract: A heat exchanging device has a main chamber, two sub-chambers, an inlet and an outlet. The sub-chambers extend outwardly from both planar walls of the main chamber. Disposed within main chamber and the sub-chambers is a medium directing insert. The insert has an angled surface on ends facing the inlet and the outlet, first directing the flow of the heat exchange medium into the main chamber, so that the heat exchange medium is dispersed within the main chamber, then directing the heat exchange medium out of the device through the outlet. The medium directing insert is bonded to the lateral walls of the sub-chambers to enhance the structural integrity of the device. The lateral walls of the medium directing insert cooperate with the planar and lateral walls of the main chamber to form channels for directing flow of the heat exchange medium within the device.

  • Publication number: 20150219409
    Abstract: A heat exchanger includes at least one cylindrical tubular member formed from a tubular structure and chamber assemblies. A plurality of flow altering members are coupled at predetermined intervals within the tubular structure. The flow altering members have an angled surface on their respective sides facing the flow of a heat exchange medium. Pairs of inlet orifices and outlet orifices are formed on the wall of the tubular structure at the same intervals as the flow altering members. Chamber assemblies are coupled as a full or partial collar on the exterior of the tubular structure. Each chamber assembly is hollow, permitting fluid flow within, and is in fluid communication with a corresponding inlet orifice, outlet orifice pair so that the heat exchange medium repeatedly flows out of the tubular structure into a chamber assembly and back into the tubular structure. Multiple cylindrical tubular members may be coupled between manifolds.

  • Publication number: 20140041842
    Abstract: A heat exchange chamber includes an inlet, an outlet and a plurality of walls defining a chamber interior. The inlet receives a heat exchange medium flowing in a first flow direction in an initial line of flow. Disposed within the chamber interior is a medium directing member, having an inclined surface, which diverts the medium from the initial flow direction so that it disperses within the chamber interior. Exposure to the contact surfaces provided by the chamber walls causes the medium to exchange heat with the chamber and the external environment. The medium exits the chamber, via the outlet, in the initial line of flow. The chambers are interconnected by tubes to form assemblies. Plural sets of chamber and tube assemblies are arranged between manifolds to provide a heat exchanger.

  • Patent number: 8584741
    Abstract: A heat exchanger has a plurality of chamber units. The chamber units include an inlet orifice, an outlet orifice, and a plurality of walls defining a chamber interior. The inlet receives a heat exchange medium flowing in a first flow direction in an initial line of flow. Disposed within the chamber interior is a medium directing member, having an inclined surface, which diverts the heat exchange medium from the initial flow direction so that it disperses within the chamber interior in at least two distinct flow patterns. Directional flow of the medium may be facilitated by two medium directing channels disposed within one or more of the chamber walls. Protrusion members on one or more chamber walls enhance dispersion of the heat exchange medium, causing a turbulent flow pattern within the chamber interior. The heat exchange medium exits the chamber, via the outlet, in the initial line of flow. The chambers are interconnected to form assemblies.
