Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0895051A1] Tubular type thermal exchangers forming part of cooling installations using two-phase refrigeration fluid need an efficient distributor which is able to ensure the homogeneity of the refrigerating fluid entering the exchanger. An efficient distributor may be constructed using a sheet of metal (17) which is perforated (17b) over all its area and shaped into a spherical cap. The central part of the cap is obscured by a cone (17a). This cone is located with its base on the central zone of the cap and its apex directed to the incoming liquid.
