Abstract:

This patent discloses a regenerative type thermal storage heat exchanger having a thermal regenerator matrix formed by a plurality of radially spaced coaxial coils of solid cross section thermal material surrounding a core. The matrix is formed from woven structures, each structure consisting of a plurality of longitudinal thermal members, a plurality of transverse cords woven through the thermal members in alignment during fabrication of the matrix. The matrix is formed by spirally winding the woven structure around a mandrel. After winding, the wound structure is inserted in a regenerator housing and the alignment maintaining means is then removed.
