Heat Exchangers

Exceptional performance, compact design

Heat Exchangers

Duocel® heat exchangers are used when traditional methods of thermal stabilization are inadequate. Duocel® heat exchangers are custom built and provide more than double the cooling effectiveness than a traditional fin heat exchanger.

Energy Absorbers

Controlled plastic deformation, multiple impact angles

Energy Absorbers

Energy absorbers absorb kinetic mechanical energy by compressing or deflecting at a relatively constant stress over an extended distance without any rebound.

Cryogenic Tanks

Temperature control, fluid stabilizing structure

Cryogenic Tanks

Solid cryogenic coolers utilize Duocel® aluminum foam as an isothermalizer and baffle structure. Keeping a solid cryogen at a uniform temperature gives the infrared optics a longer useful lifetime.

Biomedical Applications

Biomimetic bone structure, biocompatibility

Biomedical Applications

The open-celled, interconnected structure of Duocel® foam mimics that of the cancellous bone material found in our own bodies, especially when made in the same 8-10% density.
