The Conflux Cartridge heat exchanger is a complex 3D printed core that can be embedded in a traditionally manufactured part or casing. The 'cartridge' features the patented technology of a Conflux CoreTM, resulting in a compact, serviceable, customisable, and interchangeable form of heat exchanger that offers a multitude of benefits across a wide range of applications.The balance of thermal and hydraulic performance for complex thermal systems through scalable and low-cost production make it ideal for small energy systems. Furthermore, the ability to manufacture the cartridge heat exchanger in large batches with industrial powder bed fusion (PBF) machines keeps costs lower than equivalent traditionally manufactured options.

Conflux Technology Cartridge heat exchangers
A scalable design means the size and performance of the heat exchanger can be set according to your performance priorities, the specific fluids in the system and the physical constraints of the system.
In systems where fouling or regular inspection must be accommodated, cartridges offer access for service, swap outs and upgrades, lowering maintenance costs and downtime.
A legacy cartridge can be replaced with Conflux CoreTM technology for improved performance.
A conflux heat exchanger has our patented complex additive manufactured core – it’s a technology which outperforms the rest and provides lower pressure drop and higher heat transfer.
Small scale structures and internal geometries only possible with 3D printing provide precise control of the ratio of surface area presented to each fluid, optimizing heat transfer, turbulence and pressure drop. The structural features are also active surfaces, minimizing dead space and increasing performance by volume.
