Retrofit to decrease system replacement costs
Greater thermal system performance efficiency
Minimize system downtime for maintenance & replacement
for EOL Systems
Back to Heat Exchangers
Heat Exchanger Recore or Core Replacements can either extend the life or performance of existing thermal management systems. Heat exchanger (HeX) and radiator systems installed in various industrial applications, energy processing, power generation, aerospace, defense and transportation industries are sources for efficiency improvements as technology evolves over time. Increases in thermal system efficiency can translate to greater energy efficiency, increased production, better yield and resource utilization as well as weight and cost savings. Retrofitting installed heat exchangers with new heat exchanger cores is a cost, time, and resource efficient way to boost thermal system performance and efficiency. Maintenance and retrofit of existing installed systems provide a scalable, lower cost alternative to replacing entire thermal systems.
Boyd’s specialty Thermal Division, Aavid, has decades of experience manufacturing heat exchanger core replacements for many industries that require components with high reliability and quality for maximum system uptime and minimal maintenance.
For older systems where OEMs and original system manufacturers no longer support, have ended spare availability, replacement parts are EOL, or original drawings and specifications are not available, Boyd offers reverse engineering design solutions to create custom drawings that enable new production of out-of-date retrofit components.
Specific applications include:
While Boyd supports a broad range of Heat Exchanger Core Replacement applications, we specialize in commercial, military, and general aviation aircraft. Utilizing approved data and procedures, we collaborate with FAA/EASA certified repair stations for Aerospace Aftermarket Heat Exchanger Recore Support.

Aavid, Thermal Division of Boyd Corporation has 24 different Federal Aviation Administration - Parts Manufacturer Approval (FAA-PMA) eligible certificates for replacement heat exchanger oil coolers in applications such as piston and rotary aircraft are available and in use today. PMA parts offer the same performance, reliability, and warranty as OEM parts with the benefit of cost savings.
For a full list of FAA-PMA replacement parts please visit the FAA: Regulatory and Guidance Library, Parts Manufacturer Approvals database
Working with FAA approved repair stations, more than 100 different Aavid heat exchanger cores are available to replace OEM parts on Boeing, Airbus, McDonnell Douglas (MD), Bombardier Canadair Regional Jet (CRJ) and Embraer Regional Jet (ERJ) aircraft. These heat exchanger cores are used by maintenance, repair, and operating (MRO) supply chain partners to replace damaged or defective parts.
For more information on the different heat exchangers and oil coolers we offer, please see our heat exchangers page.
