OOOOOOOOOOOODOOOOOOOOO THREE-FLUID HEAT EXCHANGER Up to now, heat exchangers are generally of the plate type comprising an assembly of flat platelike elements which are situated in spaced parallel relationship. Adjacent plate elements are separated at two opposite edges by spacer elements to define a plurality of crisscross passageways. Each passageway consists of two rectangular plate elements with two spacer elements disposed at opposite edges. Alternate passageways communicate with a first manifold and the remaining passageways communicate with a second manifold. The coolant fluid is fed'into the first manifold and the fluid to be cooled is fed into the second manifold. Then obviously the two fluids would be disposed on opposite sides of the plate elements, and if any defects or leaks appear in the heat exchanger the two fluids would mix. Mixing of the fluids is undesirable and dangerous, especially if one fluid is hot engine bleed or ram air, which is to be cooled with liquid fuel, as could be encountered in the ventilation systems on supersonic aircrafts. In addition, if the heat exchangers of the prior art should break down, fuel leaking into the hot air passages would ignite making an inferno out of the passenger cabin.

Therefore, an object of this invention is to provide a fluid chamber between the coolant fluid of the heat exchanger and the fluid to be cooled, which fluid chamber is preferably pressurized above the level of the others.

Another object of this invention is to provide a buffer fluid in a heat exchanger to reduce severity of structural temperature gradients and thermal stresses which, in turn, prevent leakage.

Another object is to prevent flash heating of the fuel, which is also the coolant, during momentary stoppage of the fuel flow.

Another object of this invention is to prevent leakage and intermixing of the coolant and the fluid to be cooled.

Another objective is to prevent any external surface of the heat exchanger, including the hot air inlet duct, from reaching potential fuel ignition temperature.

Briefly, the invention provides parallel-spaced, plate elements shaped, for example, rectangular. Within alternate spaces between the plate elements are disposed hollow tubular members or headers preferably along thelonger edges to form passageways for the hot fluid. In addition, within the remaining alternate spaces are disposed hollow headers along the shorter edges so that all plate elements are fastened together in a stack. Therefore, between the hot fluid passageways additional passageways are formed which communicate with manifolds disposed on opposite ends forming a closed vessel for the buffer fluid. A flat compartment is disposed within each passageway that communicates between the manifolds. The flat compartments are spaced from the plate elements and headers so that the buffer fluid completely surrounds the flat compartments. Each flat compartment has an inlet means and an outlet means so the coolant fluid passes through the flat compartment. In order to reduce thermal stresses to a minimum, suitable holes areformed in the hollow headers so that the buffer fluids flow freely in and out of the headers.

The foregoing and other objects, advantages and characterizing features of this invention will become apparent from the ensuing detailed description of the illustrative embodiment thereof, reference being made to the accompanying drawings wherein:

FIG. 1 is a pictorial view of a portion of the novel exchanger with portions broken sway;

FIG. 2 is a small scale side elevation of the heat exchanger shown in FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a section of a portion of the heat exchanger taken on line 33 in FIG. 2;,

FIG. 4 is a section of a portion of the heat exchanger taken on line 4-4 on FIG. 2;

FIG. 5 is a partial elevation showing the air inlet of the heat exchanger with portions broken away to show the internal structure; and

FIG. 6 is the side elevation of the heat exchanger with the side plate removed and portions broken away to show the internal structure.

Referring to the drawings and to FIG. I in particular, a pictorial view of a portion of the novel heat exchanger is shown,

portions of the unit being broken away to show its structure.

The heat exchanger has a rectangular inlet flange 11 for the fluid to be cooled, for example, hot bleed air from a jet engine of a supersonic aircraft, and has a rectangular outlet flange 12 that forms the outlet for the cooled bleed air. Suitable ducting (not shown) could be bolted to flanges 11 and 12 to feed the hot air into and to guide the cooled air from the exchanger, respectively. Also a compartment flrewall (not shown) could be placed between the inlet duct and flange 11 for reasons that will be hereinafter explained. The air leaving the exchanger has been cooled, for example, by relatively cold fuel, entering the exchanger through a fuel inlet 13 and leaving through a fuel outlet 14. The fuel inlet and outlet extend through a side plate l6 that extends from and is brazed to flange l1 and to flange 12. A similar side plate 17 (FIG. 5) is disposed on the other side of the exchanger and parallel to the side plate 16. A semicylindrical plate 18 (FIG. 1) is disposed on the top of the exchanger and suitably welded to side plates 16 and 17 and flanges 32d on members 32, disposed at the inlet and outlet, to form a buffer fluid manifold at the top thereof. Another semicylindrical plate 19 (FIG. 6) is disposed on the bottom of the exchanger and welded to side plates 16 and 17 and flanges 33d (FIG. 6) on members 33 (also disposed at the inlet and outlet) to form a buffer fluid manifold at the bottom thereof. There is disposed between the side plates 16 and 17 a plurality of heat transfer plates 21 in parallel relationship and spaced apart from each other. Plates 21 are preferably rectangular, and within alternate spaces formed therebctween and along both vertical edges are disposed vertical hollow headers or spacers 22 to form passageways extending vertically as viewed in FIG. 1. Top horizontal hollow headers or spacers 23 and bottom hollow horizontal headers or spacers 24 (FIG. 5) are disposed in the other interplate spaces along the top and the bottom edges, respectively, of plates 21 to form passageways extending right to left as viewed in FIG. 1. Horizontal and vertical passageways are thus formed between the plates 21. For reasons that will be explained hereinafter, vertical hollow headers or spacers 22a are disposed between the side plate 16 and the adjacent heat transfer plate 21 and between the side plate 17 and its adjacent heat transfer plate 21 to form vertical passageways. Both vertical and horizontal spacers 22, 22a, 23 and 24 are rectangularly shaped tubes, to allow a buffer fluid to flow therethrough. Top and bottom spacers 23 and 24 have their ends sealed with suitable plugs 25 (FIGS. 1 and 5), and therefore to allow buffer fluid to flow therein, holes 27 are formed only on the top surface of top spacers 23 and only on the bottom surface of bottom spacer 24 (FIG. 3).

The hot bleed air enters the heat exchanger through flange l1, and the vertical headers 22 and 22a limit the passage of air to alternate horizontal passageways formed between the plates 21. To increase the heat transfer rate suitable offset corrugations 31 FIG. I are placed between the respective plates 21 in the bleed air passages. Stiffener members 32 and 33 are preferably extruded sections having three flanges such as flanges 32b, 32c and 32d as shown on member 32. As mentioned above, flanges 32 don both the inlet and outlet are butt-welded to top plate 18 as shown in FIG. 6; flanges 32c extend downward over the plugged end of headers 23 and are brazed thereto; and flanges 32b are welded to flanges 11 and 12 of the heat exchanger. The sharp corner is eliminated between flanges 32b and 32c by suitable fillet radius. The respective flanges on members 33 are butt-welded to bottom plate 19, brazed to the bottom plugged end of the spacers 24, and welded to the flanges I1 and 12. Each member 32 and 33 has aligned spaced lugs 37 (more clearly shown in FIG. 6) disposed parallel to flanges 32c and 33c. The lugs 37 are disposed behind vertical headers 22 so that the headers are held firmly between and brazed to the lugs 37 and flange 32c and 33c, respectively. The vertical bars forming flange 11 are welded to the respective side plates 16 and 17 (FIG. 5). For reasons that will be explained hereinafter horizontal arcuated plates 38 (FIG. 6) are welded to the outside edge of the horizontal bars of flange 11 and to the respective top and bottom plates 18 and 19, while vertical arcuated plates 39 (of which only one plate is shown in FIG. 1) are welded to the outside edges of vertical bars of flange 11 and to respective side plates 16 and 17.

Since the bleed air passes only through the horizontal passageways formed between alternate adjacent pairs of plates 21 and running substantially from flange 1 1 to flange 12, a feature of this invention is to provide a buffer fluid on the opposite side of the plates 21 in contact with the bleed air. The buffer fluid is disposed within the vertical passageways communicating with a top manifold formed by the top plate 18 and with a bottom manifold formed by the bottom plate 19. A pressure relief valve 41 (FIG. 2) is suitably connected to the top manifold 18 to prevent excessive pressure from building up if, for example, the fuel (coolant) is shut off, the bleed air would cause some of the buffer fluid to heat up, causing the pressure thereof to rise. Preferably the buffer fluid is a liquid so that a thermal inertia is built into the heat exchanger to prevent excessive thermal gradients. The heat is removed from the bleed air by the cold fuel entering the fuel inlet 13 and leaving outlet 14. The structure, that allows the fuel to extract heat from the buffer fluid and in turn the bleed air, will now be explained. The inlet 13 is made substantially the same as the outlet 14 and they include pipes 44a and 44b (FIG. 1) respectively, to which are fixed flanges 46a and 46b. Both pipes 44a and 44b pass through the side plate 16 and enter the bottom buffer fluid manifold, more clearly shown in FIG. 5. The pipes then pass through a plurality of plates or walls 47a and 47b. Plates 47a and 47b are suitably brazed to pipes 44a and 44b. Plates 47a and 47b are contoured plates having the same configuration, and are placed face to face as shown in FIG. 4 so that the vertical edges 48a and 48b and the top and bottom edges 48c and 48d (FIG. 6) respectively, on the two plates coincide face to face and are brazed together. Each plate has a center rib 49 that extends from the bottom edge 48d and touches the center rib on its mating plate so that when the two ribs are brazed together, a flat U-shaped chamber is formed between the two plates 47a and 47b (more clearly shown in FIG. 6). In the portion of the pipes 44a and 44b located in the chamber formed by the plates 47a and 47b, suitable openings 51 are formed as shown in FIG. 3 for pipe 440. These openings 51 allow the cooling fluid to leave pipe' 44a, pass through the plurality of U-shaped chambers, enter pipe 44b to leave the heat exchanger. Within the U-shaped chambers are disposed suitable offset corrugations 52 disposed so that heat is efficiently transferred from the plates 47a and 47b to the cooling fluid.

In addition to the corrugations 52 disposed between two adjacent plates 47a and 47b similar offset corrugations 53 (FIG. 1) are disposed to transfer heat between plates 21 and the adjacent respective plates 47a and 47b. The offset corrugations 53 are oriented to allow the buffer fluid to move freely in the vertical direction. In addition to increasing the flow of heat, the offset corrugations 53 provide structural support for the plates 47a and 47b. Tubes 55 are disposed vertically and along both vertical edges 48a and 48b of plates 47a and 47b as shown in FIG. 4 to prevent the edges from distorting under pressure due to lack of support beyond the corrugations 53. The tubes 55 are opened at the top and bottom thereof so that the buffer fluid flows freely through the tubes. As mentioned before, offset corrugations 31 are disposed between two adjacent plates 21. Corrugations 31 are disposed to allow the air to move freely through the horizontal passageway and efficiently transfer its heat to the coolant fuel in the following sequence: hot air to corrugations 31, corrugation to plates 21, to corrugations 53, to plates 47, to corrugations 52 and to cold fuel.

When exchangers use highly flammable fuels as the heat sink medium, safety features are required. In normal operation, the flange 11 would be bolted against a firewall (not shown) so that the flammable fluids are disposed on the heat exchanger side and high temperature elements are disposed come in contact with the exterior surfaces of the heat exchanger which are maintained at a relatively low temperature by the buffer fluid. In addition, since holes 26, 34a and 34b allow the buffer fluid to flow within curve plates 38 and 39, these plates are also maintained at relatively low temperature by the buffer fluid. Therefore, at substantially any place, one would choose, on the exposed surface of the heat exchanger, except the outlet end which is always cool, the

buffer fluid would be disposed on the opposite side. Since flange 11 is relatively wide any heat flowing outward through the flange would be extracted by the buffer fluid contained within the curved plates 38 and 39.

In addition, since the air flowing through the heat exchanger would be supplied to the aircraft cabin, no fuel and air must mix for health and safety reasons. Since there could be a possibility of a leak in the heat exchanger, the leak would most likely occur either between the fuel and the buffer fluid or between the air and the buffer fluid. Therefore the buffer fluid keeps the air and fuel apart. If by the remote chance two leaks occur, one between the buffer fluid and the fuel and the other between the buffer fluid and the air, the fuel and air are prevented from mixing since the compartment containing the buffer fluid is pressurized, for example, by the buffer fluid accumulator 60 and the relief valve 41 to a pressure greater than both the fuel and the air. This causes the buffer fluid to flow outward and prevents the fuel and air from flowing inward into the buffer compartment. Therefore, by the use of a buffer fluid accumulator 60 the pressure and volume can be monitored and a loss in buffer fluids indicates a malfunction. In addition, if there is a short period of no fuel flow to draw away the heat, the device automatically makes use of the heat of vaporization of the buffer fluid to cool the air before it enters the passenger cabin. This feature should allow sufficient time to shutoff the associated air-conditioning system before the cabin temperature rises to dangerous levels. The bufferfluid would preferably be water to obtain the best heat transfer properties. It may be necessary to add a freeze suppressant, such as glycol, in order to operate at low ambient temperature. An inert type gas, such as nitrogen, can also be considered as a buffer fluid in the event that it is not to be utilized as a secondary heat sink. y

In the light of the above teachings, various modifications and variations of the present invention are contemplated and will be apparent to those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.
