Exchangers reduce the amount of heat generated when firing weapons by a fixed percentage and are not affected by temperature of the biome or terrain. Multiple heat exchangers are multiplicative, so it is not possible to add enough heat exchangers to reduce heat to zero. Instead, each subsequent exchanger reduces the percentage of the heat left over after the effect of the previous exchanger, eg: three Exchanger++, which reduce heat by 20% each, would still leave 0.8*0.8*0.8=0.512=51% of the original heat to be dissipated by the regular heat sinks.
