Designing a new heat transfer module

The module can be used across various applications requiring head transfer.

Nicolas E. Stauff and Taek K. Kim of the Nuclear Science and Engineering division and Yinbin Miao and Abdellatif M. Yacout of the Chemical and Fuel Cycle Technologies division have collaborated to patent their heat transfer module that can effectively transfer heat between fluids, with other benefits in terms of weight and neutronics. The module’s design allows it to be used in various applications requiring heat transfer, such as cooling systems, power plants and heat exchangers. For example, in use with nuclear reactors, the module offers efficient heat transfer, improved neutron transparency, and stability in core power during transients.
