With this piece of equipment Allied Heat Transfer can test the performance of air cooled heat exchangers and plot the performance; allowing testing of existing units as well as refining the design of new units. Reductions in size, weight, noise and cost of air cooled heat exchangers is expected through the use of this equipment.
CSIRO in partnership with Enterprise Connect have recognized the capabilities of this cutting edge piece of equipment and thus placed the Allied Heat Transfer ACHE Test Unit on the Technology Partnerships Equipment Register.
Enterprise Connect, an Australian Government initiative in the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, has established a register of Australian firms with leading edge equipment and capacity available to assist other firms. The objective is to increase the capacity utilisation of this equipment for firms owning the equipment, while providing other firms with access to leading edge equipment or technology which would otherwise not be available.
