Altex Product Development Areas

Altex's unique knowledge base, and analysis and experimental tools have supported the development and test of new thermal management, fuel-processing, combustion and power-system technologies. Several fully instrumented test facilities are available at Altex covering capacities from 20 watts to nearly 3MW. These are complemented by models addressing chemical kinetics, chemical equilibrium, fuel transformation, combustion, fluid dynamics, heat transfer, and pollution formation. Using these resources, Altex has supported technology development and demonstration in several key areas of expertise.


Thermal Management

High performance low cost non-isotropic structures for heat exchangers, with 100% COP

Combined Heat and Power
