BAE Systems plc files UK patent application for heat exchanger comprising a fibre reinforced polymer composite

BAE Systems plc has filed a patent application for heat exchanger comprising a fibre reinforced polymer composite. This invention was developed by Hucker Martyn John, Rew Jason, Dunleavy Michael and Haq Sajad.

According to the abstract released by the UK Patent Office: The heat exchanger is at least partially comprised of a fibre reinforced polymer composite (FRPC) having at least one elongate void. The FRPC is formed of at least one layer of fibre substantially encapsulated in a binder matrix. The elongate void is arranged to receive a heat exchange medium, which may be a fluid. The heat exchanger may have a thermal insulation layer to prevent thermal transfer of energy from the fluid to a surface of the heat exchanger. A thermally conductive layer, such as a metallic fabric, foil or mesh, may be provided to permit rapid conduction of thermal energy. The elongate void may be created by providing a low melting temperature metal alloy, which is melted and poured out of the FRPC heat exchanger to provide the elongate void. Alternatively, the elongate void may be created by use of a sugar paste that is removed by hot water.

The heat exchanger is suitable as a heat exchanging panel on a vehicle, vessel or craft, and is lighter and stronger than conventional metal panels.
