Le Fond Européen de développement régional et la Wallonie investissent dans votre avenir à concurrence de 540.000 € en soutenant EHP dans son développement de la technologie des caloducs et boucles diphasiques pour la régulation thermique des engins spatiaux.

EHP develops, produces and qualifies components for spacecrafts. Historically, the initial background is based on two Phase Heat Transfer systems which include Heat Pipes and Loop Heat Pipes. More recently, complete mechanism sub-systems have been delivered (deployable radiator, pointing systems, etc…).

Two Phase Heat Transfer Systems originaly developed for Space, are now available for Aeronautical, Defense and Terrestrial markets.

Based on a staff of more than 80 persons, EHP organization offers full in house capabilities: Design and simulation, Industrial manufacturing and Qualification tests (thermal and mechanical).

Main customers are ESA, CNES, Airbus DS, Thales Alenia Space, Tesat, OHB, OneWeb and other major tier one / tier two actors of the space markets and Alstom, Airbus and Safran for non-space developments.

The electronic improved reliability needs makes compulsory the use of new technologies as EHP’s one and opens new high untapped potential markets.

EHP was created in 2001 by Pr. Jean-Claude Legros as a spin-off of SABCA and the Microgravity Research Center of the ULB – Université Libre de Bruxelles.

In 2017, EHP became a subsidiary company of Airbus Defense & Space SAS.

Also in 2017, the European Investement Fund and the Wallonia Region have invested in EHP’s Manufacturing capacity.

PIPS & I3PS Project

The EU funded projects PIPS and I3PS targeted the energy saving of planes, within the Cleansky 2 research program, by developing a new anti-icing system. Both projects enabled to develop a new technology (PIPS) and to test it under relevant environment (I3PS). This new concept uses wasted heat from the engine to bring it to …

Eurostar Neo Deployment and Pointing System Achieves Qualification

The Eurostar Neo Deployment and Pointing System, developed by Airbus Defense and Space (F) and Euro Heat Pipes (B) in the frame of ESA’s Neosat Partnership Project, is qualified and ready for flight. The new Airbus Defense and Space Eurostar Neo satellite product line offers one of the largest communication payload capacities on the world market. This …

3D printed capillar connections for heat pipe networks

Objectives On telecommunication applications, the Heat Pipes are used in different ways. They can collect heat from several dissipative equipment in order to either spread the heat over large radiator panel or transport heat from hot area to cold area. Use of Direct Manufacturing technology for manufacturing heat pipes is not foreseen to improve mass …
