Euro Heat pipes

The European leader in Space Thermal Control

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.

Engineered Thermal Products & Solutions

Space market

At THERMOCOAX, we manage all steps of entire space projects from the design through the qualification and up to the final product.

We have built a strong pedigree of heating systems up to 100 volts for Heat pipe applications, 3 to 10 watt Catalyst Bed heater for hydrazine or green propellant thrusters, heating devices and magnetic coils for electrical Hall effects thrusters.

THERMOCOAX is also a provider of high temperature sensors, such as the 3800F sensors supplied to the ISS’s Material Space Laboratory or for measuring the skin of the space probe during re-entry to the atmosphere. The technology offers exceptional possibilities of power and small dimensions. Devices as small as 0.019” diameter enabling improved integration. Our Talent comes from the Mineral Insulated Cable we have been manufacturing for nearly 60 years, our precious know how which we continue to keep secret.
