Products & Software
Since the company’s origin, the hiTRAN® Thermal System has been CALGAVIN®’s flagship product supporting the industry’s needs.
The subsequent release of our CALGAVIN®.SP software has made evaluation of our product even more straightforward. In parallel, the development of new products is ongoing, emphasising the intensification of flow processing and securing tomorrow’s answers.
hiTRAN® Thermal Systems
hiTRAN Thermal Systems enhance the tube side heat transfer for tubular heat exchangers; whether considered at the preliminary design phase, or through a retrofit to an existing heat exchanger.
For the calculation of tube side heat transfer and pressure drop in hiTRAN enhanced heat exchangers, the software program CALGAVIN.SP is available for free download.
Twisted tapes are an additional type of turbulator that CALGAVIN® manufactures. It achieves enhancement by inducing swirl flow of the tube side fluid.
Economic heat transfer enhancement
