Chardon Engineering is specialized in technology development and product development, mainly in the areas of harnessing residual energy and heat and flow phenomena. It does so with a hands on approach, using purpose built test set-ups and prototypes, to demonstrate feasiblity and iterate quickly towards products that are both technically, sustainably ánd economically feasible.
We are driven by the urge to make a difference, saving energy, converting waste streams into new resources and relieving end-users from high energy bills and waste removal costs.
During the days of affordable and abundant fossil fuels, industrial thermal equipment was engineered to operate using high temperatures. These high temperatures allowed engineers to limit the size of expensive metal heat exchangers, hence the capital costs of their devices.
But due to the transition from a fossil fuel powered economy towards a society that is increasingly powered by renewable energy sources and recovered waste heat, the available temperatures to drive equipment lower significantly.
This implies that the current design methods are no longer economically viable, especially for low margin bulk products.
Over the years, Chardon Engineering has developed a set of techniques to economically harness low temperatures, combining knowledge from the world of physics, with modern materials and production technologies, such as 3D printing.
