In order to dimension the cooler and selection of the right size, the required cooling power is derived from the furnace type and the machine size. These data together with the climate conditions at the customer’s location is provided to the cooler supplier in order to define the cooler configuration for every project. This process is time consuming and hence costly. One effort to reduce the cost is to standardize the external coolers.
The objective of this thesis work is to perform an overall investigation on alternative cooler types and explore possible suppliers in the market and based on that study, come up with a recommended cooling type/supplier that fulfils the requirements. Next step is to standardize the cooler in a way that a few number of specified coolers (2 or 3 different coolers) can be used for all projects/customers regardless of the size of the HIP and the customer’s location. ie. to create a sort of configurator in Excel or other software with a few limited inputs that are entered by user and it results in the selection of a specific cooler. Among the parameters that affect the cooling capacity of the cooler are the number of fans, power of each fan, physical dimensions of the cooler, coolant flow, dry bulb and wet bulb temperature, etc.
Suitable background (Education)
- Bachelor of science program in Mechanics, Physics, Mathematics or similar
- A basic understanding of cooling principles and terminology.
