HTRI, the world-recognized leader in heat transfer, has been running its applied research program for more than 55 years. 

Research & Technology Center

We conduct real-world, applied research at our multi-million dollar research facility in Navasota, Texas, USA. The test units are much larger than you'll find in an academic lab, and closer to the size of equipment in an operating refinery or process plant. In addition to our physical research, we make extensive use of other approaches like computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and laser anemometry visualization. Some of our experimental programs are decades old and represent the largest concentration of heat transfer expertise in the world.
