Thermosyphon Heat Pipe Heat Exchangers
MANTRA's energy recovery systems are custom designed for each application. Given the process
parameters, each thermosyphon heat pipe heat exchanger contains a specifically calculated number of thermosyphon heat pipes to
meet the project's objectives. The units operate with the evaporator section of the thermosyphons in the high-temperature exhaust
stream and the condenser section in the low-temperature incoming stream.
In clean exhaust streams, energy transfer can be augmented by the addition of external fins. These fins increase the surface area
of the heat pipes, allowing even more energy to be collected.
Flexibility in Design
Improving energy efficiency requires a unique, multidiscipline approach which is why each MANTRA system
is designed and fabricated to a detail customer specification. This specification outlines details of the type of waste stream, the
amount of energy available for recovery, and the client's use for that energy.
A major design advantage when using heat pipes
against traditional technologies is the flexibility created when calculating the number and length of heat pipes required to achieve
the desired goal. To fully utilize the available space within the plant, the MANTRA heat exchanger can be designed to optimize the
height, width, and/or depth of this space.
Energy Transfer Modes
Gas-to-Air Assembly Process
MANTRA designs, supplies, and installs energy recovery systems for production facilities around the world. Our engineering
and project management teams work closely with our clients through the design phase and when required, through the installation phase.
provides three options for the supply and installation of our recovery systems:
- Supply of the heat exchanger unit only
- Supply of the
heat exchanger with engineering support
- Turnkey installation
Our turnkey approach includes:
- An assessment report to identify where and
how to obtain the maximum energy recovery and potential energy savings.
- An assigned project manager to ensure the completed project
has minimal impact on production. Installation can be planned for scheduled downtime between production cycles.
- Performance testing
to ensure the installed system provides the projected benefits.
MANTRA prefers to hire local contractors and suppliers currently
used or recommended by our clients so that we can be sure to provide the highest level of quality and service while maintaining competitive
