Calculation and Design Services:
1. Heat Leak Analysis:
AET’s experts utilize state-of-the-art tools and methodologies to analyze the heat leakage in cryogenic systems. This involves calculating the amount of heat that infiltrates into a cryogenic system, which is crucial for maintaining the desired low temperatures. By assessing material properties, insulation effectiveness, and environmental conditions, our team helps clients to optimize insulation solutions and reduce energy consumption and costs.
2. Piping Flexibility Assessment:
To ensure the integrity and reliability of cryogenic piping systems, AET offers comprehensive flexibility analysis services. Our team evaluates the stress levels in piping systems under various conditions including thermal, weight, and dynamic loads. We use advanced engineering software to model the piping system and calculate stress levels, advising on design alterations if necessary to maintain system integrity and safety.
3. Thermal Shield Planning and Considerations:
Thermal shields are a critical component in minimizing radiant heat transfer to the cold inner parts of a cryogenic system. AET’s engineers are adept at designing and specifying the most effective materials and configurations for thermal shields. These designs take into consideration factors such as material properties, operating temperatures, and budget constraints, ensuring that the thermal shields are both efficient and economically viable.
4. Heat Exchanger Design:
AET’s engineering team specializes in the custom design of heat exchangers for cryogenic applications. From conceptual design to detailed engineering drawings, our professionals work closely with clients to develop heat exchangers that are tailored to specific applications and performance requirements. This includes selecting the appropriate materials, determining the optimal configuration and sizing, and conducting rigorous thermal and mechanical analyses to guarantee performance and longevity.
With years of experience and a wealth of modern cryogenic engineering resources, AET is a leading expert in the field. We work closely with our clients throughout their projects, offering professional guidance, thorough designs, and accurate calculations. Our goal is to help create cryogenic systems that are safe, efficient, and cost-effective.
