Heat Exchanger Industry ApplicationsHeatric PCHEs on the Armada Platform

Our track record

Heatric's diffusion bonded heat exchangers are utilised in a wide range of industrial applications including the oil and gas industry, power generation, chemical processing and more.

There are over 2,500 Heatric exchangers currently in active operation, with an international customer base benefiting from the plethora of monetary, spacial and performance related benefits our products afford.


Heatric PCHEs can be used in the following applications:                                                                                                                                    

The oil and gas industry

PCHE Heat exchanger applications - oil and gas.

Heatric’s most long-lived and established market which we have been supplying for over 25 years. Our diffusion bonded heat exchangers are used in a wide range of gas and light hydrocarbon liquids processing duties with units ranging from 6 to 60 tonnes and assemblies up to 100 tonnes.

This innovative technology provides customers with a multitude of important benefits including superior capabilities at extreme temperature and pressures, as well as a far more compact size compared with other heat exchanger products on the market (PCHE exchangers are up to 85% smaller than shell and tube exchangers).

Industrial gases

PCHE heat exchanger applications - industrial gases.With the high level of energy demanded by cryogenic air separation, Heatric can help customers in this market to optimise performance while still minimising costs.

The arrival of novel plant and other air processing technology involving Heatric exchangers can significantly enhance effectiveness while reducing the overall footprint of the equipment.

For other industrial gas processing applications, Heatric has supplied oxygen coolers in diffusion bonded stainless steel to ensure no explosion risk, especially when process gas contaminated with mercury is used.

PCHEs also provide substantial improvements to the latest hydrogen refuelling stations where high pressure systems benefit from the integrity and robust, safe design of our diffusion bonded heat exchangers.
