Products Compact heat recuperator


The Compact heat exchangers are the result of many years of reasearch and development. Their specific design has been thought up to improve micro and small gas turbine performance whilst ensuring their compatibility with system restrictions.

Compact series are the core of our know-how and expertise since more than 20 years when ACTE developed its concept of plate heat exchanger which remains today the most advanced and the best solution for heat recovery for Micro Gas Turbines.

Main technical features are :

  • Primary surface heat exchanger
  • Up to 90% effectiveness (and even more!)
  • Gas to gas exchanger
  • Between 4 and 8% loss pressure
  • Counter flow heat exchanger
  • Made of 100% stainless steel and fully welded
  • Up to 900m²/m³
  • High heat transfer coefficient


  • Up to 50% of fuel savings!
  • Resistant to clogging
  • Resistant to thermal fatigue
  • Increased lifetime (up to 3 times!)
  • Highly effective while more compact than traditional solutions

...These benefits will guarantee you

  • Resistance to major thermal shocks during start up
  • High effectiveness
  • Optimum integration
  • Low maintenance costs
  • High volume production and a low unit costs
