Limiting the temperature of exhaust gases to below 150°C is one of the necessary conditions for diesel engine to be used in a potentially explosive atmosphere. For this purpose heat exchangers are necessary to be used. This article presents the concept of exchanger in which heat pipes are used to transport thermal energy from the exhaust gases to the cooling medium.
