Proposed Phase 2 Emissions and Fuel Efficiency Standards

Thermo-Pur Technologies has pioneered a low cost manufacturing process employing high speed laser welding and rapid superplastic profiling to form high tensile strength foil including high strength carbon steel, stainless steel, hastelloy and titanium. 

Our manufacturing technology shatters long-held assumptions about limitations in the elongation of high tensile strength metal and creates opportunities for product applications previously considered impractical or economically infeasible.

Transportation & Defense

Stainless steel plate heat exchangers with 40-60% less mass, 20-40% less volume, and 33-67% lower cost for a given heat transfer requirement compared to aluminum or copper tube and fin designs.  Increased heat rejection capacity reduces fan and pump power requirements, increasing fuel efficiency.  Capacity to cool multiple fluids in a single core, reducing the number of separate heat exchangers and cooling system space requirements and reducing the overall weight of the vehicle.

Power Generation

Thermo-Pur Technologies has designed an air cooled condenser (ACC) bundle that produces a 300% increased heat transfer coefficient over current designs for the same face area and fan power and reduces bundle weight 60 to 78%, bundle cost 25 to 56% and ACC module cost 20% or more.  Thermo-Pur’s cross-corrugated plate heat exchangers improve recuperation and cogeneration by enabling a more efficient uptake of waste heat.

Air Conditioning

Thermo-Pur’s low cost manufacturing process enables the use of smaller, lighter heat exchangers, pumps and fans for a given application.  The increased efficiency of corrugated plate cores reduces energy consumption. Finally, the use of SS304 in air conditioner cores increases product lifespan and reduces maintenance costs, particularly in coastal areas.

Other Applications

Other potential applications include reducing manufacturing costs and light weighting; replacing automotive engineered steel stampings and assemblies, fuel cell bipolar plates, cold plates for lasers and heat exchangers.  Lightening includes use of corrugated patterns for strength enhancement, similar to a corrugated box, in industries like automotive, aerospace, shipping and other applications.

“Our mutual TPT and Clemson University projects bring together ideas and applications from across the globe to advance the transportation industry. Thermo-Pur possesses significant innovations that address very important issues such as manufacturing cost, light weighting, and improved energy efficiency and should receive quick acceptance by the transportation industry. With CU-ICAR synergies, we look forward to more such innovations.”
