Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger
A shell and tube heat exchanger is a class of heat exchanger designs. It is the most common type of heat exchanger in oil refineries and other large chemical processes, and is suited for higher-pressure applications.
As its name implies, this type of heat exchanger consists of a shell (a large pressure vessel) with a bundle of tubes inside it. One fluid runs through the tubes, and another fluid flows over the tubes (through the shell) to transfer heat between the two fluids. The set of tubes is called a tube bundle, and may be composed of several types of tubes: plain, longitudinally finned, etc.
The Shell &tube heat exchanger consists of the following basic parts:
- Tube bundle (Tubestack)
- Baffle (Baffle)
- Tube sheet
- And other parts and accessories.
This heat exchanger is very commonly used in many different industries, along with the simple principle of operation when two fluids are in indirect contact with each other through the surface and cross-section of the tube beam. Through that contact, they can exchange heat with each other.
Beam tube heat exchangers have a very wide range of applications, in all conditions from vacuum to high pressure, from low temperature to very high temperature and to all types of fluids at different temperatures and pressures. whether inside or outside the tube.
The flow in the device can be unidirectional, helical or horizontal. The beam tube heat exchanger is the solution to help the machinery system operate better
Advantages and origin of beam tube heat exchangers provided by Hai Chuong
- Origin UK – Australia (or depending on customer requirements)
- Various materials: Steel, Copper, Graphite, SS304, SS316, Cu/Ni Alloy etc.
