Chemical Processing

Maintain constant temperatures and optimize the most exacting chemical processes — such as semiconductor crystal growth, precision temperature calibration or chemical vapor disposition (CVD) — with Aavid Thermacore's passive, two-phase heat pipe technology.

chemical processing heat pipesWith no moving parts to fail, and based on straightforward processes of evaporation and condensation, Aavid Thermacore heat pipes are ideal for high-volume processing operations like semiconductor production and fabrication-level crystal growth. Aavid Thermacore solutions offer constant temperatures for process isothermality, elimination of hot spots in chemical processes and the ability to optimize chemical process conversion and selectivity.

For specialized applications, Aavid Thermacore offers non-contact heat exchangers that operate in large-scale heat transfer systems using separated fluid streams (organic or inorganic), ensuring reliable, safe performance. We also specialize in technology that can operate efficiently in extreme environments from low-temperature (cryogenic) to very high-temperature (>1,000°C) heat dissipation. Aavid Thermacore heat transfer capabilities for chemical processing include:

  • Heat exchangers for high-temperature reactors
  • Isothermal surfaces for CVD reactors
  • Chemical stream isolation using heat pipe heat exchangers
  • Isothermal furnace liners for crystal growth or recrystallization
  • Gas-controlled heat pipes for precision temperature control
  • Black body cavities
  • Gas-controlled heat pipes for precision temperature control

Superior thermal control can make chemical processes more efficient, improving conversion, selectivity and precision. And the versatility of Aavid Thermacore heat pipe designs, plus our custom engineering services, helps give process designers extra flexibility.
