ACTE's recuperators help you develop many kinds of energy production projects, thanks to their modularity and wide operating range. For example, a recuperator can be used in a thermal solar plant to generate, either directly or through a thermal oil circuit, the steam that will power a turbine.
ACTE's recuperators also allow you to recover heat from hot exhaust gases of your CHP (Combined Heat & Power) unit and use the energy currently lost to produce hot water or hot oil for heating purposes, or even low pressure steam.
Likewise, evaporators or recuperators specifically designed for ORC applications can be studied and produced on demand with the support of the ACTE R&D team.
The ACTE team can help you to find a heat transfer solution that is perfectly adapted to your energy recovery.
The use of heat exchange primary surfaces together with an annular shape makes the "Shell & Plate" heat exchanger design particularly compact and allows you to minimize the installation footprint and the supporting civil engineering structure, and therefore to obtain the best return on investment. The modular components also enable you to benefit from a custom-built solution that is adapted to your needs and easy to maintain.
ACTE provides heat exchangers for Micro-Gas Turbines from 25kWe to 1 MWe (contact us for 1 Mwe and more). Here is the list of standardized Compact heat exchangers sorted by power of the MGT:
It is also possible to use several heat exhangers in series.
