Title: Cooling apparatus with a resilient heat conducting member

Abstract

A cooling structure including a thermally conducting central element having a channel formed therein, the channel being configured for flow of cooling fluid there through, a first pressure plate, and a first thermally conductive resilient member disposed between the thermally conducting central element and the first pressure plate, wherein the first pressure plate, the first thermally conductive resilient member, and the thermally conducting central element form a first heat transfer path.

  • A heating and cooling apparatus with thermal recovery with two heat exchangers and method of alternately heating and cooling same are described. During the warm-up phase, the cool liquid returning from a heat exchanger, and, during the cool-down phase, the hot liquid returning from a heat exchanger, are delivered to reservoirs from which, during the warm-up phase, hot liquid is taken for the hot liquid source, and, during the cool-down phase, cold liquid is taken for the cold liquid source, into which reservoirs both during the warm-up phase and during the cool-down phase amounts of liquid of different temperature aremore » taken from the heat exchanger. The warm-up and cool-down phases of the second heat exchanger are out of step with the warm-up and cool-down phases of the first heat exchanger by a fraction of the length of these phases. The liquid from the first heat exchanger is used during the warm-up phase for the preheating of the second heat exchanger, and during the cool-down phase for the preliminary cooling thereof.« less
  • A resilient supporting member for an exhaust gas catalytic converter which has a thin plate of ceramic fiber, an edgewise peripheral base formed by pressing a laminate formed by folding a cylindrical unit of knitted or looped fabric made of stainless steel fine wires and folding the thin plate, and an erected peripheral end erected from the base in an L shape in section. Thus, the resilient supporting member can effectively prevent the exhaust gas from entering into the air gap passage in the catalytic converter.
  • Two solutions to the problem of cooling a high temperature, high heat flux surface using controlled spray cooling are presented for use on a mandrel. In the first embodiment, spray cooling is used to provide a varying isothermal boundary layer on the side portions of a mandrel by providing that the spray can be moved axially along the mandrel. In the second embodiment, a spray of coolant is directed to the lower temperature surface of the mandrel. By taking advantage of super-Leidenfrost cooling, the temperature of the high temperature surface of the mandrel can be controlled by varying the massmore » flux rate of coolant droplets. The invention has particular applicability to the field of diamond synthesis using chemical vapor deposition techniques.« less
