    This is when the US was actually still interested in educating engineers rather then just managers.
    Currently HEAT-Exchangers are “hot” in the European market for their heating capability due to the high energy costs. The dual-purpose heat-exchangers make 3KW of heat for every 1KW of power consumed; making then a tad more expensive then the cheapest heat-sources: solid fuels(wood,coal etc).
