Abstract (en)

A heat exchanger is provided for allowing heat to be exchanged between a first fluid and a second fluid, wherein the first fluid is a liquid. The heat exchanger comprises a core (100) comprising: a plurality of first flow paths (200) for the first fluid and a plurality of second flow paths (300) for the second fluid; a plurality of pin components (211) extending into the first flow paths; a plurality of fin components (103) extending through the second flow paths; a plurality of first enclosure bars (203, 204, 206) extending between adjacent separating plates (101) that are either side of the first flow paths (200), the first enclosure bars (203, 204, 206) being arranged to at least partially define the first flow paths (200); and a plurality of second enclosure bars (305, 306) extending between adjacent separating plates (101) that are either side of the second flow paths (300), the second enclosure bars (305, 306) being arranged to at least partially define the second flow paths (300). The heat exchanger includes a manifold (400) arranged in fluid communication with each of the first flow paths (200) of the core (100). The manifold (400) and the core (100) are formed as one integral piece, said integral piece comprising a stack of laminate members (101, 201, 301, 501, 502) with said pin components (211) for the first flow paths (200) and said fin components (103) for the second flow paths (300). The plurality of laminate members (101, 201, 301, 501, 502) first, second and third manifold sections (202, 302, 102) that are shaped to form the manifold (400) when the plurality of laminate members (101, 201, 301, 501, 502) are stacked.
