Country: Germany

Manufacturing of complex structural components like heat exchanger tubes with end caps and flange via fully converted carbon / carbon to SiSiC

The structural component, a heat exchanger tube, was manufactured in hard felt and fully converted to SiSiC. The procedure was successfully applied on different test tubes up to 300mm in length. Further process optimisation from viewpoint of design and homogenity of conversion are still necessary. The optimisation of the design, contributes to improved load capacity of the tubes.
