Consulting
OTS’ wide range of consulting services support engineering teams in the design, research and development of cutting-edge HVAC&R technology.

Combined, OTS staff has more than 130 years of experience in the research and development of air-conditioning, refrigeration and heat pump systems and components. We have analyzed and reviewed numerous vapor compression, absorption, adsorption and liquid and solid desiccant technologies for a wide range of applications, including micro-cooling, heating, and power systems. Expertise includes working fluid mixtures for vapor compression systems and the use of natural refrigerants.

We strive on meeting individual company and product needs. We never offer a "canned" approach to your unique challenges and problems. Our solutions, analyses, and reports are always customized to address your specific issues or project. We value and leverage industry collaboration and feedback to optimize results and provide the best possible solution!

  • Sample Projects
    1. Design, analysis, and optimization of tube-fin, microchannel and braze plate heat exchangers
    2. Design, analysis, and optimization of complete vapor compression systems
    3. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis, including system and heat exchanger air flow evaluation
