Tubular, shell-and-tube heat exchangers for various tasks
In industry, problems often arise to carry out heat transfer between media with high pressures and temperatures, both with a change in the phase state of the medium, and without a change. Tubular heat exchangers successfully perform similar tasks.
For example, if it is necessary to condense high temperature steam, more than 180 ° C, the best solution would be to use a tubular heat exchanger. Steam must be directed into the annular space, which cools the water inside the tube bundle. Due to the high heat transfer coefficient, the tubular heat exchanger - the condenser will be quite compact even under heavy loads. The high structural strength ensures a long service life. Tubular, or, as they say, shell-and-tube heat exchangers, also allow condensate to be supercooled to the temperature required by the process technology.
Materials used in the manufacture of tubular heat exchangers - carbon steel, stainless steel, various alloys, titanium.
The engineers of the OPEKS ENERGOSYSTEM company will perform the necessary calculations and select the optimal tubular heat exchanger for various technological processes.
