Polymer Micro-Hollow Fibre Heat Exchangers (PHFHE)

This project aims to develop, optimize, and manufacture novel Polymer Micro-Hollow Fibre Heat Exchangers (PHFHE) for various applications. This light weight PHFHE can reduce the weight up to 50% compared with traditional metal heat exchanger, leading to at least 50% cost reduction.

The small diameters of the fibres (micrometers) have thin walls and large surface area so heat transfer intensity is significantly increased.

PAB will provide advice and expertise on the possible integration of PHFHE products within the automotive industry.

We are working in collaboration with a number of key  partners on this project:
