RAAL is an integrated company, all activities (manufacturing, design, testing, etc.) being carried out “in house”. This competitive advantage provides both a very short development and assimilation cycle in production of new products as well as short term manufacturing and supply of series production.

Design, Calculation and Simulation

RAAL uses its own dimensioning software for heat exchangers, software developed in-house based on theoretical studies and thousands of tests performed.

RAAL uses FEA (Finite Element Analysis) to simulate the structural, flow and vibration stress conditions.

System Design

RAAL has vast experience in designing heat exchangers and cooling systems. Starting from the specifications, dimensions or CAD data of the application, RAAL designers are able to find the best solutions for the most efficient use of the available space.

RAAL designers have the ability to continuously optimize the products, so as to fully meet the requirements of the application.

Testing and Validation

RAAL Testing Center is the facility where the validation of new products is performed. Based on technical specifications or on the parameters obtained by means of DAQ performed on customer equipment, the heat exchangers are tested for performance and strength.

RAAL Testing Center capabilities:

  • Thermal and fluid-dynamic performance tests on the wind tunnel
  • Durability tests: thermal cycle, pressure cycle, burst pressure, performed at ambient or at high temperatures in the climate chamber
  • Durability tests: shock and vibration
  • Internal cleanliness tests
  • Chemical and accelerated corrosion tests
  • Metallographic studies

Tools and Equipment

RAAL engineers have a vast experience in tool and die design, and in designing the specific equipment necessary for the manufacturing process.

RAAL places special importance on the design, manufacturing and optimization of the new generation of fin forming machines, which provide a wide range of fins and turbulators.


All RAAL products are manufactured in compliance with the following standards:

  • ISO 9001:2008 and ISO/ TS 16949:2009 – Quality Management System.
  • EN ISO 14001:2004 – Environmental Management System
  • OHSAS 18001:2007 – Occupational Health and Safety Management System
