Heat-Transfer Systems

Sodium and NaK (sodium-potassium alloy) are commonly used in high-temperature heat-transfer applications. CEI has extensive experience with both materials and their use in nuclear reactors, furnace cooling, solar thermal, and other processes requiring a heat-transfer fluid above 600°F (315°C).

Liquid metals have high boiling points, low vapor pressures, excellent thermal conductivity, and good heat capacity, making them ideal for demanding heat-transfer applications. In addition to engineering these systems, CEI can supply specialized equipment specifically designed for liquid metals.
