A heat exchanger is a device for transferring thermal energy from one fluid to another without mixing them; the heat flow passes through the exchange surface which separates them. Aluminum is increasingly used in the manufacture of heat exchangers, especially with plate and bar technology that offers total modularity for a heat exchanger manufacturer. Its characteristics allow both a good heat exchange while allowing to reach high operating pressures. With Hebco mastering vacuum brazed aluminium technology and Cataldi sas which is recognized as a heat exchanger manufacturer, we have the necessary capabilities to accompany you in your applications using heat exchangers.
There is a wide variety of heat exchangers which are classified according to the flow direction between fluids. Heat exchanges in the plates and strips are said to be crossed because the fluids flow in perpendicular directions.
Whether your application concerns the exchange of heat between air/water/oil, plate and bar technology adapts thanks to its multiple configurations of fins and tubes (with or without disturbance).
The fields of application of electronics continue to increase while moving towards more miniaturisation, these are applications for heat transfer by cold plates. Many of these cold plates must be made to measure and use fluids as a heat transfer vector, which requires a perfect seal that can only be obtained by a vacuum brazing type assembly. This type of assembly without soldering flow allows to obtain clean parts and compatible with environments such as medical, armament, railway or aeronautical.
Our expertise in this assembly technology and the mastery of the work of aluminium has allowed us to realize various applications cold plates prototype and series. The manufacturing and assembly are carried out directly to the coast according to your plans.
For custom cold plate applications incorporating liquid cooling, vacuum brazing is the best assembly technique.
Air cooler for traction or power transformers, air heaters, heat exchangers, etc. All these cooling systems use aluminium plate and bar core. Liquid cooling systems, especially those using oil, require a complete tightness of the circuits, which can only be achieved with advanced assembly technology such as vacuum brazing. Hebco is the only French manufacturer of aluminum bundles for cooling system using this technology.
For more than 15 years we have been manufacturing cores which are then assembled to form large complete radiators which then integrate into liquid cooling systems for military applications, railway or nuclear.
Our business is to provide quality plate and bar cores for all types of cooling systems as well as custom liquid cooling radiators.
Industrial applications requiring compressors and thermal motors all use industrial radiators to ensure proper operation, whether for cooling or temperature regulation. Once the operating parameters are defined, the various components of the cooling system, of which the radiator is a key component, must be dimensioned and assembled.
Plate and strip technology makes it possible to offer single-piece industrial radiators to reduce the overall footprint:
The skills acquired in the manufacture of vacuum-brazed aluminium cores combined with our various partners enable us to offer complete industrial radiators assembled to our customers' specifications.
The technology of vacuum brazing is particularly interesting for industrial radiators subjected to severe constraints (temperature, pressure, vibration), in particular thanks to its many advantages:
Adopting vacuum brazed insert and strip technology means choosing the quality and durability for your industrial radiators.
