What is a Heatric PCHE heat exchanger?

Metal PCHE heat exchanger
  • Unlike other heat exchangers, Heatric units are manufactured by a unique solid-state process known as 'diffusion bonding'.
  • This process creates an exchanger core with no joints, welds or points of failure, resulting in a unit combining exceptional strength and integrity with high efficiency and performance.
  • This allows us to create a unit up to 85% smaller and lighter than traditional technologies such as shell and tube exchangers.
  • The majority of heat exchangers produced by Heatric are more commonly known as Printed Circuit Heat Exchangers or 'PCHEs'. 
  • Our PCHE exchangers have been a well-established technology in the upstream hydrocarbon processing, petrochemical and refining industries for many years with customers such as Petrobras, BP, Shell and ExxonMobil using them widely in multiple applications around the world. 
  • Over 2,500 Heatric exchangers are currently in operation in both offshore and onshore applications and we are continuing to develop heat exchange solutions for a wide range of new market sectors.
