Menges Roller – designer and manufacturer of precision industrial rollers for the plastics, paper and steel industries – is being recognized for using CFD (computational fluid dynamics) to design better heat transfer rollers.
- The technology for which Menges won this award involves the use of high-tech computer models to simulate a rollers’ temperature & performance characteristics – allowing engineers to test different designs “virtually.”
- This saves huge amounts of time and money, while making R & D results more reliable.
- Rollers designed using Menges’ CFD Thermal Modeling Technology are guaranteed to achieve the temperatures modeled in their computer simulations
- This brings a new level of “assurity” to industrial roller performance, taking the guesswork out of temperature control and thermal transfer calculations
