VPE PRODUCTS

VPE creates high quality products.

Diffusion Bonded Microchannel Heat Exchangers (MCHEs)

VPE manufactures custom diffusion bonded microchannel heat exchangers (MCHEs), also known as printed circuit heat exchangers (PCHEs), for a diverse range of industries.   Furthermore, these compact heat exchangers are ideally suited for extreme pressure and temperature service applications.

Hydrogen Pre-Cooling Heat Exchangers (H2PCs™)

VPE applies the same technology used to fabricate its diffusion bonded microchannel heat exchangers on its hydrogen pre-cooling heat exchangers (H2PCs™).   Furthermore, these heat exchangers are ideal for high-pressure hydrogen applications where compact size is advantageous.

(Off-the-Shelf) Compact/Miniature Heat Exchangers

VPE offers its diffusion bonded microchannel heat Exchanger technology in a wide selection of smaller sized, commercial off-the-shelf models.  In addition, these compact/miniature heat exchangers outperform and compete with the standard products such as shell & tube, brazed plate, as well as welded plate heat exchangers.

High Temperature Retro-Reflectors

Retrolite brand high temperature retro-reflectors or retro-reflective targets are ideal for use as a permanent photoelectric target where ambient temperatures are as high as 900°F.  In addition, the target will retro-direct light in the entire visible spectrum as well as in the infrared.

Laminated & Clad Metal Sheet

VPE’s laminated & clad metal sheet is a composite of metals that have been bonded together at the atomic level.  Hence, VPE utilizes diffusion bonding and occasionally other methods to manufacture laminated clad & metal sheets.  In addition, they come in a wide range of alloys and configurations.  Furthermore, laminated & clad metal sheet provides a means of creating a composite material with performance properties not available from a single metal.
