Abstract

In recent years much attention has been devoted to the development of efficient heat exchangers. The regenerative or moving matrix heat exchanger is one type which has been considered. Most regenerative heat exchangers use one of the conventional types of high area matrices mounted in a drum or disk in such a manner that it can be moved in a continuous cycle from a cold fluid stream to a hot fluid stream and back again. A rather different approach to the design of a regenerative heat exchanger which has been patented in this country is a set of flexible moving bands which carry heat energy from one fluid stream to another in a continuous manner. Such a regenerator is illustrated in Figure 1. This is essentially a parallel plate heat exchanger with a variation in the temperature of the plates and the fluid in the direction of the length of the plate.
