By applying the very latest methods of computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and in close collaboration with the Westphalian University of Applied Sciences (Westfaelische Hochschule) in Gelsenkirchen (Germany), GEA Luftkühler has succeeded in introducing significantly more efficient engineering design into its elliptical finned tubes for heat exchangers. The CW Tube permits use of up to 25 % less heat exchange tubing while attaining identical heat and output power ratings. Tests in wind tunnels have meanwhile confirmed the CFD calculations carried out in simulation. The tube offers lower investment costs, more compact heat exchanger dimensions, lower energy consumption, and quieter fan operation.
