Typical Product Development Cycle
for each learning phase
Iteration for each learning phase, multiple expenses of prototypes and testing for each design
Product Development with CAE
Lower risk of final testing not meeting customers needs
Pressed in Brass
Pressed in Brass with reflection
Uniform heat – but not needed – Waste of energy, breakdown of plastic resin (FLIR photo)
Good heat profile, but open coils allow heat loss
Too much heat in the center, not efficient
By managing the fluid path and heat transfer area, we developed a high thermal efficiency fluid heater that outperforms standard immersion heater designs
Due to the way standard cartridge heaters are used, heat is being created at exactly the wrong place for the application need
Form in Place Heater
PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) Block
Higher temperatures demand a higher class of fit to the application to reduce the radiation losses from the heater
Standard heater power in each location
8 cartridge heaters
Hot due to thicker section
Note shadow effect behind bolt hole
Staggered heater power, without internal wattage distribution
Reduced temperature variance, further improvement possible with distributed wattage
