The Chrysler Corp. Turbine Car Heating and Ventilating System 640134
The Chrysler Corp. turbine car heater features an “instant heat” gas-to-air heat exchanger in which fresh air is heated by hot gases from the turbine instead of by hot water. The “weather jet” forced air heating and ventilating system, utilizing an axial blower, is another feature of the turbine comfort conditioning system. This paper describes the design of the heat exchanger, hot gas heater temperature control valve, and pressure heating and ventilating controls.
