Abstract : This invention relates to a chemical converter-heat exchanger formed by a plurality of rows of parallel, horizontal channels in a housing through which an inflowing fluid is heated. Vertical columns of horizontal channels connect alternately with an inlet and outlet manifold and carry the fluid back and forth horizontally in vertical columns of horizontal channels so that the inflowing fluid is partially heated by the outflowing fluid. Means are provided so that the bottom face of the housing is heated by the sun which in turn heats the fluid as the fluid passes through the bottom channels in the housing. A plurality of units may be mounted together to increase the output. (Author)
