METHOD OF FORMING A HEAT EXCHANGER This invention relates to the manufacture of heat exchangers. In particular this invention relates to an improved method of manufacturing a heat exchanger wherein the tubes of the exchanger are formed from a unitary slug by means of an impact extrusion process.

PRIOR ART The most common type of heat exchanger presently in use, in applications such as domestic refrigerators and air conditioners, has a liquid flow path formed by a plurality of parallel tubes which are connected in series. A heat exchanger of this type is formed by bending long lengths of tube, generally copper, into a U-shaped configuration; the legs of the U- shaped form are then passed through openings formed in a plurality of fins or plates placed one on top of the other, and the free ends of adjacent tubes are connected by short U- shaped lengths of tube. To make this type of connection it is necessary to swage the 'ends ofthe long legs of tubes to receive the ends of the short lengths of tube. The two sections of tube then are soldered together. In many forms of constructions there are a very large number of tubes andconsequently the assembly of the exchanger according to known methods is a costly and time-consuming operation.

In a straight through heat exchanger where the heating tubes are arranged to provide in parallel flow paths, it is necessary to secure both ends of the heating tubes within header tanks or manifolds. Again the time cost involved in soldering or otherwise securing both ends of the tubes in header tanks is substantial.

SUMMARY The present invention provides an improved method of manufacturing a heat exchanger which considerably reduces the time costs involved in the assembly operation.

According to the present invention, the first step in the manufacture of the heat exchanger is to form a slug with a plurality of passages therein corresponding to the number of tubes which are required in the heat exchanger. The slug is then extruded by impact extrusion to form a plurality of tubes which are integrally connected at one end by a base formed from the non-extruded portion of the slug. The interior passages of the tubes are then connected in a heat exchanger circuit to permit fluid to pass through the tubes in heat exchange relationship with the exterior of the tubes.

The invention will be more clearly understood after reference to the following specification read in conjunction with the drawings.

PREFERRED EMBODIMENT In the drawings,

FIG. 1 is a pictorial view of an impact extrusion slug according to an embodiment of this invention;

FIG. 2 is a diagrammatic illustration of a cross section of an impact extrusion punch and die prior to impact;

FIG. 3 is a cross sectional view similar to FIG. 2 showing the relative positions of the die and punch after impact;

FIG. 4 is a pictorial view of an extruded tube assembly together with manifold or header tank for connecting the tubes in series;

FIG. 5 is a partial cross sectional view of an assembled heat exchanger of the type wherein the tubes are connected in series;

FIG. 6 is a partial cross sectional view of a portion of a straight through type heat exchanger; and

FIG. 7 is a pictorial view of a portion of a heat exchanger tube having integrally formed fins.

With reference to FIG. 1 of the drawings, the reference numeral l relates to an extrusion moulding slug according to an embodiment of the present invention. The slug is made, from extrudable aluminum and formed with a plurality of passageways 12 arranged in a pattern corresponding to the required pattern of tubes. The thickness of the slug is determined according to conventional extrusion moulding practice in accordance with the total length of the tubes required and the thickness of the end plate required after extrusion. The slug 10 is located within an extrusion die 14 which has die openings 16 arranged to align with the passages 12. A punch 18 having guide pins 20 is arranged above the die 14 so that the guide pins 20 are aligned with the die openings 16. As shown in FIG. 3 of the drawings, the slug is extruded by the impact of the punch 18 and tubes 22 are extruded through the gap formed between the die openings 16 and the pins 20 in a conventional manner.

A typical part of the extrusion process is illustrated in FIG. 4 wherein the remaining portion of the slug 10 forms an end plate connecting the-tubes 22. The passageways 12 extend through the tubes 22 and the slug 10. Whereas no reduction in production cost could be achieved by forming the individual tubes by an extrusion moulding process as opposed to the conventional tube manufacturing process, the method of the present invention wherein a plurality of tubes are formed simultaneously and connected at their ends by an end plate by an impact extrusion process does effect a considerably saving. The formation of this structure also provides an element in a form which simplifies the method assembly of a heat exchanger of the type which has a plurality of fin plates extending between the heating tubes. The end plate retains the heating tubes in their spaced position so that the fins may be very easily and quickly slipped over the free ends of the tubes and positioned at any required location relative to the length of the tubes. With this structure it is no longer necessary to use the fins as jigs for. holding the tubes in a fixed position relative to one another while connecting adjacent ends of the tubing.

A typical extruded structure may have an end plate measuring- 1 inch by 3 inches and a thickness of three-sixteenth inch. From an end plate of this type there may be 17 tubes extending from one face. Each of the tubes may measure one-fourth inch O/D and three-sixteenths inch I. D. and they may measure 10 inches in length. It will be understood that these dimensions are given by way of example and they are not intended to limit the scope of this invention in any way.

FIG. 4 also shows a suitable header or manifold cover 24 which has a input passage 26 and a number of elongated recesses 28 formed in the lower surface thereof. A gasket 30 is also provided having openings therein corresponding to the openings and recesses in the manifold 24. Passages 32 are also formed in the manifold 24 and gasket 30 and are adapted to be aligned with the threaded passages 34, which are formed in the end plate. It will be seen that the recesses 28 are arranged to connect every second pair of adjacent passageways 12 formed in the end plate 11.

A typical assembled heat exchanger according to an embodiment of the present invention is illustrated in FIG. 5 of the drawings. In this figure a structure similarto that shown in FIG. 4 of the drawings is shown at the left end of the assembly. At the left end it will be seen that the manifold 24 and gasket 32 are secured to the end plate 11 by bolts 36 which threadably engage the passages 34 with the end plate 11. In this construction the input passage 26 of the header is aligned with one of the openings 12 formed in the end plate 11. The recesses 28 in the manifold connect every second pair of adjacent passages 12. At the end of the assembly an end plate 11a is secured to the free ends of the tubes by a conventional welding process. The end plate 1 1a has a plurality of passages 12a extending therethrough to receive the free ends of the tubes 22. The second manifold 24a and gasket 32a are secured to the end plate 11a by bolts 36a. The manifold 24a and gasket 32a are of substantially the same construction as the corresponding manifold and gasket located at the other end, except that the recesses 28a are adapted to connect the adjacent ends of tubes which are not connected by the passages 28 in the other manifold 24. This arrangement establishes a flow path wherein the heat exchanger tubes are connected in series.

lt will be understood that the manifold and end plate construction-shown in FIG. 5 for connecting the free ends of the tubes is not essential to the formation of the heat exchanger. The free ends of the tubes could be connected by the conventional short U-shaped pipe sections.

FIG. 6 of the drawings shows an alternative form of manifold header type 40 suitable for connecting the ends of the tubes 22 to provide an in parallel flow path for the fluid which is passing through the heat exchanger.

The further advantage of the extrusion moulding process is that it permits the formation of heat exchanger tubes with integrally formed fins extending longitudinally thereof. An example of the finned tube construction is shown in-cross section in FIG. 7. In this construction the tube 22 is formed with a pair of longitudinally extending fins 42 which project outwardly therefrom to effectively increase the heat transfer surface area. This construction may conveniently be used in a number of heat exchanger devices to eliminate the need for providing finned plates such as those identified by the reference numeral 23 in FIGS. 5 and 6. Alternatively, the fins 42 may be used in combination with fin plates 23 to further increase the heat transfer to the surface area of the exterior of the heat exchanger unit. It has not previously been practical to provide longitudinally extending heat exchanger fins as this would have required welding or otherwise securing the fins along the through length of the conventional heat exchanger tubes.

From the foregoing it will be apparent that the present invention provides an improved method of manufacturing a heat exchanger wherein a slug 12 is subjected to impact. extrusion to form the tubular assembly shown in FIG. 4. The assembly of the heat exchanger is then completed by locating the fins 23' over the tubes in a predetermined spaced relationship and securing manifolds 24, 24a or 40 at either end so as to place the interior passages of the heating tubes in a heat exchanger circuit to permit the fluid to pass through the tubes in heat exchanging relationship with the exterior of the tubes.

Various modifications of this invention will be apparent to those skilled in the art without departing from the spirit of this invention. For example the total number of tubes and their arrangement relative to one another may vary according to the requirements of the heat exchanger. In addition heat exchanger may be manufactured without the use of the fins illustrated in the FIGS. 5 and 6. The structure of the extruded core of this invention is very useful in a heat exchanger which does not require fins as the end plate holds the tubes in a fixed position removing the need for applying independent clamping devices to hold the tubes in the spaced relationship.
