Conflux Technology has used its extensive knowledge in additively manufactured heat exchangers to deliver its first product: a premium, scalable, configurable, ultra-high performing water charge air cooler (WCAC) that outperforms other leading WCACs, applicable to motorsport and high-end automotive markets. The Conflux WCAC is configured to specific customer requirements and has been launched with a focus on performance, competitive pricing, and rapid delivery.
“The Conflux WCAC embodies how we deliver what motorsport and elite automakers ask for – a definitive performance advantage. A product is rapidly configured to our customer’s prioritization of performance, size, and packaging requirements. AM lets us supply the WCAC with low lead time and competitively priced,” said Dan Woodford, Conflux’s new Chief Product Officer.
The Conflux WCAC is already favored in European motorsports circles – eliciting enthusiasm from leaders in the field over its fine features, geometry, and competitive pricing.
Conflux’s water charge air cooler has a 15% smaller core volume, 24% reduction in air-side pressure drop, 82% reduction in coolant pressure drop, 39% reduction in wet weight, and 31% reduction in dry weight, compared to leading microtube WCACs for the same level of heat exchange.
“Customers were commenting on both the detail of the parts and the surface finish. They couldn’t believe the level of detail within the WCAC and how it was designed. It solidified their understanding that Conflux is a long way ahead of our competitors with what we showcased. Customers responded with amazement and disbelief as they held a part designed by our engineers embedding complex AM geometries into a production-ready WCAC,” said Ben Batagol, Conflux’s Head of Business Development, after his recent European showcase to automobile manufacturers.
“I am really excited about the product roadmap for Conflux Technology’s AM heat exchangers. The team have made significant strides developing in-house tools that deliver very high performance without compromising quality. I am really proud of everyone at Conflux for launching the next phase of our business with the WCAC product line,” said Dan Woodford. “Conflux has aggregated our expertise in first-principles calculations, core engineering design, and additive manufacturing into a set of tools that can rapidly inform a solution.”
