TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian chemical engineers from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad studied the performance of automobile radiators
and realized that when nanofluids are used in the radiators, significant increase is observed in the amount of heat transfer in those systems.
The automotive and aircraft industry may benefit from this technology as it could be used to design and manufacture components for use in automobile radiators
and space radiators, aluminum engine blocks and pistons, heat exchangers for gas-turbine applications, all-metal honeycomb sandwich panels for fabrication of aircraft structures, jet engines in commercial and military aircrafts, thrust chambers in rocket engines; and for other electronic components, probes and thermionic devices, space vehicle assemblies and various miscellaneous applications.
Furukawa-Sky, which aims to develop new customers in China, will also transfer technology to the Chinese firms to manufacture high-value-added products such as automobile radiators
for markets both inside and outside China.
Potential uses for carbon foam include heat management devices for airplanes and spacecraft, and smaller, more efficient automobile radiators
and computer chip heat dissipaters.
Commercial, industrial accounts and the general public bring aluminum cans, all types of aluminum, copper, brass, automobile radiators
, copper-aluminum condensing coils, stainless steel, cast aluminum, cast aluminum wheels, insulated copper and aluminum wire and other recyclable items to the recycling center.
