The primary sodium circuit with two pumps and four IHX (Intermediate Heat Exchanger) is contained within the reactor assembly and the secondary sodium circuit consists of 2 identical loops each with a sodium pump and four Steam Generators (SG).
When combined with tuning of the expansion device settings, the IHX increases system cooling performance up to 14 percent and improve operating efficiency up to 12 percent -- depending on the base system and thermal expansion valve settings.
As the automotive industry strives to increase cooling power and improve energy efficiency, Visteon's IHX supports the European Commission's plans for more efficient mobile air conditioning systems in order to reduce real-world fuel consumption and lower CO2 exhaust emissions.
