WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

Midwestern State University engineering students put one of their designs to the test Wednesday.

Three students created a see-through heat exchanger to find out how much pressure a gasket can take before it melts.

It could revolutionize several industries from ethanol, pharmaceuticals, even the dairy industry.

They had it tested by Tranter, a company with a plant in Wichita Falls.

"This is our first senior design project that we have hosted with MSU and I have been very pleased with the results," said Dr. Robin Steininger, Director of Product Development with Tranter. "What they are working on is really going to help RND for future heat exchangers. and particularly for us to develop ways to model and predict how heat exchangers will perform."

Their test succeeded by making the gasket snake to alleviate the pressure.
