After spending over 6 unsuccessful months of CFD modeling to determine a satisfactory method of blending two fluegas streams at significantly different temperatures, we were running out of options. We contacted APEX for help and they offered their “Temperature Equalizer”. The Temperature Equalizer was installed in one of our North American Carbon Black plants and has proven to be a resounding success, mixing the two streams in extraordinary fashion. The APEX group solved the mixing issue with a very robust and effective design and we are very pleased with the results. – Orion-Americas Project Team - Orion SA
Through its cooperation with APEX Group, ENERGYNEST can testify that this organization has an extensive expertise in the field of pressure vessel and steel structure fabrication. Their know-how and quality craftsmanship ensured that our six ThermalBatteryTM units – located at the Avery Dennison production plant in Turnhout, Belgium – were fabricated in accordance with the highest possible fit-up and welding quality standards. Having reliable partners such as APEX Group is crucial to our work; they enable us to guarantee that our product lives up to its state-of-the-art quality. Considering our long-standing relationship, we are happy to give them an enthusiastic endorsement.

BorsodChem MCHZ, s.r.o.
Our Haldor Topsoe steam reforming hydrogen plant has been in operation since 1996. Since the beginning of its lifespan, this plant has used an original APEX® plate-type heat exchanger. This heat exchanger has facilitated steady operation without temperature fluctuations. As a result, the heat exchanger has not required any repairs, modifications or replacement in its entire ~28 years of service. We believe that this is a testament to the leading-edge design and manufacturing practices of APEX Group.
APEX Group was vital to the success of our recent project. The entire APEX Group project team was dedicated to providing a high-quality product in an accelerated timeframe. Technically, drawing and design accuracy was superb. Project execution was flawless. Commitments were met on time or ahead of the promised date.
