How we help you Tailor made heat exchangers

Heat transfer specialist

More than a just a heat exchangers manufacturer, ACTE is your partner for finding the best solution answering to your heat recovery needs.

In most of its projects, ACTE works together with its customers to design and implement a fully adapted solution for heat recovery in order to meet your needs, and to achieve the best match between your process and our heat exchanger thanks to the use of modular components.

Our R&D and Engineering team will help you with:

  • Mechanical Design CAD (Computer Assisted Design);
  • CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) Analysis for temperature and flow profiles, thermo-mechanical stresses…;
  • Pressure drops and efficiency estimations;
  • Test Bench support;


From prototype to mass production

Thanks to its R&D team and dedicated automated production line, ACTE can guide you throughout the whole development process and can collaborate with you to best pursue your objectives, by transforming your heat exchanger prototype into a serial product.

For specific developments a strong team of experts will help you in all aspects of your product development:

  • Thermodynamics cycle analyses;
  • Thermal design;
  • Fluid stream optimization;
  • Mechanical design;
  • Material studies;
  • Study of the power system;
  • Comprehensive design of complex interfaces (especially in gas turbine applications).
