What make them special

  • Their shape which was designed to
    ease flow distribution
  • The space optimisation,
    no dead zone in heat transfer
  • Their counter-flowing reaching
    high effectiveness 
  • The fact that they are thermal shock friendly,
    offering them an increased lifetime
  • Their material chosen to match corrosion
    and temperature conditions
  • The lowering of the time-to-market for our
    customers thanks to off-the-shelf recuperator products

The “COMPACT” range heat exchangers are at the heart of the ACTE company and of our success. They were specially designed to improve gas turbines efficiency while remaining compatible with the specific requirements of this field :

  • Resist to major thermal shocks during start up
  • Achieve high effectiveness
  • Ensure optimum integration
  • Fit with high volume production and low unit cost
  • Guarantee low maintenance costs

Thanks to this overall consideration and the resulting technological developments, ACTE is able to offer an innovative ring-shaped gas-to-gas heat exchanger which is compact, robust, effective and can be fully integrated according to your needs in a cost effective manner.
