The goal of the the thermal test plan is to evaluate the thermal performance of the existing two hot plate and new "tube" heat transfer prototypes against the OpenFluidWarmer design requirements.

Heater Set Point Test

Determine heater set point required to achieve 38°C outlet temperature at the following conditions (max allowable heater set point of 100°C):

Flow Rate Test

Determine the maximum possible flow rate that keeps outlet temperature above 20°C at the the following conditions:


Test results will be posted later this week.
