The heat exchanger exchanges heat between a heat source and a fluid. It is usually used together with a nuclear reactor and steam turbines.

Heat Exchangers will not produce steam until they reach 500°C.

Heat Exchangers have a heat capacity of 1 MJ/C. Thus, they can buffer 500 MJ of heat energy across their working range of 500C to 1000C, and require 485 MJ of energy to warm up from 15C to 500C when initially placed.
