									Catacel Heat Exchanger Platform

Catacel’s Heat Exchanger Platform, HEP™, is a
patented (U.S. Pat. No. D560,276), cost-effective,
foil-based module made of high-temperature
materials throughout.

Key Benefits of the HEP are:
 Heat transfer up to 2.5 kW per module
 Easily bundled for greater heat exchange
 Readily customized through foil inserts
 Becomes a reactor by depositing catalysts

                                                               A variety of corrugation geometries can
                                                               be inserted into the HEP modules to
                                                               tailor the heat transfer and pressure drop
                                                               characteristics to your specific needs
                                                               without resorting to significant and costly
                                                               custom engineering.

                                                               Catalytic coatings can be applied to the
                                                               inserts to enable the HEP to work as a
                                                               reactor as well as a heat exchanger.
