Vipertex® Applications - Aerospace

Vipertex® enhanced surfaces, either in a tube or flat rolled configuration, are rolled into coils of metal, promoting repeatability, volume production and cost efficiency. Vipertex® makes it possible to incorporate enhanced surfaces into heat exchanger designs with greater flexibility and scalability, helping you optimize a solution for your project.

Since weight and space come at a high premium onboard aircraft, heat exchangers need to be as efficient as possible in order to minimize space utilized for their function, as well as weight of materials and charging substances. Vipertex® surfaces, with their inherent enhancement features on both sides of the material, provide an opportunity to design a very efficient system. Heat transfer can be enhanced as much as fivefold compared to smooth tube, suggesting compact units can do the work previously done by larger ones made of less efficient material.

Benefits of Vipertex® in aircraft applications include:

  • Compact units
  • Lightweight units
  • Faster heating and cooling
