Technology and Innovation

Research is the foundation of APEX Group. All our products are based on internal and continuous research. We aim to improve our products, continuously developing technologies that guarantee efficient heat transfer, long lifetime and trouble-free operation.

APEX-delfino® Technology optimizes the flow distribution and influences turbulence for improved operation of our flat plate heat exchangers. This new technology increases the effectiveness and the lifetime of the unit, due to corrosion protection, easy-access cleaning and reduced pressure drop at high heat transfer rates.

Air-Curtain® Technology controls the temperature of the heat transfer plates, keeping it above the acid and water dew point, to avoid condensation.

A-CORREX® Technology helps prevent corrosion by applying corrosion-resistant borosilicate layers on a metallic plate or tube, making it acid-resistant, thermal shock resistant and corrosion-free.
