Building on proven expertise and industrial experience in waste gas recovery for gas turbines, ACTE developed a new concept of plate heat exchanger. This concept offers a wide range of applications in waste heat recovery and more generally, in all types of industrial processes. ACTE GAP technology provide you with an outstanding new solution to improve your energy savings while benefiting from the high technical level developed for gas turbines (resistance to high temperatures, high effectiveness, compactness, high volume production,...)

Moreover,  ACTE GAP technology has been specially developed to recover heat from the hot waste gases released during existing industrial processes without impacting the process itself. Adjusting the distance between the plates (from a few mm to a few cm) allows your heat exchanger to adapt the pressure loss according to your technical and economical needs.
