A manufacturer of cryogenic cooling systems was confronted with the demand for bigger and more efficient systems. A specific customer wanted a centrifugal pump to transport helium gas at a temperature of -193 degrees Celsius. Simply enlarging a small pump did not deliver the required result and experimental optimization by using prototypes is a time-consuming and costly process. How to move on?
Calculating a complete CAD-design often is too complex and time-consuming. LIME’s CFD-analysts quickly managed to determine the critical elements of the design and to calculate and optimize those separately.
But Mathware took the client even a step further. Because of our extensive experience with similar problems, LIME could suggest and quantify new improvements of the design.
LIME helped the client by supporting the design process through virtual prototyping and computer simulations.
This way the client could precisely meet the customer’s needs: increased capacity in combination with a high output.
