Increased Performance of 6000 Series Copper Heat Exchangers
April 18, 2000 - Lytron Incorporated, the Total Thermal Solutions™ company, recently implemented several proprietary manufacturing changes which resulted in significant performance improvement in its 6000 Series Copper Tube-Fin Heat Exchangers. Lytron's larger copper heat exchangers, such as our 6320, saw a 33% performance boost while the smaller units, such as the 6110, saw a 5% performance improvement. Ideal for applications that use water, EGW, or other common fluids as the coolant, these tube-fin heat exchangers deliver ultra-efficient heat transfer and maximum reliability in liquid-to-air cooling loops.
Charles Carswell, President of Lytron, said, "For over 40 years, Lytron has been refining its heat exchanger manufacturing process to guarantee high performance, leak-free products. The continuous improvement culture of our state-of-the-art production facility allowed for these proprietary manufacturing improvements. Lytron's market leader position is further strengthened by this advancement."
"Our customers will benefit by receiving additional performance in the same package size and some customers may be able to drop down to a small size unit, saving valuable real estate," he continued.
These compact units are fabricated by expanding heavy-walled copper tubing into copper cooling fins for precise metal-to-metal surface contact, silver brazing the liquid circuit and finally attaching the fan plate. Designed for OEM applications where appearance is important, these units are compact and electro-static dip painted for protection from corrosion. Each unit is 150 psi tested to provide leak-free reliability.
Eight different models of various sizes are available. Most units are supplied with an aluminum fanplate with preassembled fan mounting hardware. The fanplate accommodates common fan sizes and mounting flanges allow for installation into a cabinet or frame. Three inlet/outlet fitting options are available: straight tube, beaded tube and 37o flare nut. Lytron also stocks heat exchanger accessories such as fans, power cords and finger guards for convenient one-stop shopping.
Lytron is the only ISO 9001-certified, Total Thermal Solutions™ provider. ISO certification provides the assurance these liquid-cooling products are defect-free and able to provide years of reliable, leak-tight service.
Lytron Incorporated designs, develops and manufactures high performance heat transfer systems and components. Its cooling products include recirculating chillers, compact and portable non-refrigerated cooling systems, aluminum-oil coolers, copper tube-fin heat exchangers, stainless steel tube-fin heat exchangers, compact cold plates, and OEM coils.
