DTS takes pride in owning and operating New Zealand’s sole flatbed laser welder, making us the exclusive tank manufacturer capable of engineering customised dimple pad designs.
Laser-welded dimple pad designs are crafted by fusing two metal sheets using a laser welding technique. This process allows for the design of an engineered flow path and optimised heat transfer.
Why use dimple pads?
Laser welded dimple pads offer higher pressure ratings which allow designers the ability to engineer pressure drop to drive the system for the greatest energy savings.
Internal volume is significantly reduced which leads to increased thermal efficiency and an impressive cost reduction of cooling fluid required over traditional designs.
By design, the dimple pad promotes turbulent flow and directs the system fluid to all areas of the pad for further efficiency gains. The dimple pad offers a slimline depth that allows for a full thickness of insulation that further optimises efficiency.
Improved Thermal Control:
A laser-welded dimple pad can achieve a heating/cooling capacity of up to or exceeding 5kw/m².
Our automated laser welding process delivers cost savings in labour and reduces lead times, ensuring enhanced convenience and efficiency for our customers.
