Abstract

In air-conditioning and energy-recovery applications, heat exchangers are very important to the overall efficiency, cost, and size of the system. Current heat exchanger designs rely heavily on fin-and-tube or plate heat exchanger designs, often constructed using copper and aluminum. Recent developments in material science-in particular, advances in ceramics and ceramic matrix composites-open opportunities for new heat exchanger designs. Some research directed toward using these materials for heat exchangers in other applications has been reported; however, there has not been a comprehensive study of the use of these emerging materials in both conventional HVAC&R systems and emerging energy technologies. This review reports the current state-of-the-art of ceramic materials for use in a variety of heat transfer systems.
