  • Heat Exchangers for the Winter Season

    As winter is just right around the corner, the cool fall days are already feeling just as cold as a mid winter day for me. Because I live in the Midwest I can't really escape the cold from the months of October through March. The cold air is about to arrive and stay here for the season, not to mention snow will start to fall soon. When I think about the winter coming, I started to pull out all of my extra blankets around the house and get out all...

  • Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger: The Tube Specifics

    As one of the most basic and commonly used heat exchanger designs in the business, understanding the construction and key components of shell and tube heat exchangers is advisable. Available in a wide range of sizes, its innate mechanical ruggedness ensures that it will work well and last a long time for its various heating and cooling customer needs. Because the metal material of both the shell tube and the internal bundle of tubes should be conductive, corrosion resistant and resilient, stainless steel or copper alloys are often the choices...

  • Heat Exchangers Important Role

    Any heat exchanger manufacturer can tell you the important role that a heat exchanger plays in products such as the refrigerator, air conditioner, space heater and many other similar units. These types of units are almost constantly running to keep areas hot or cold at any given time and the heat exchanger can help these units run more smoothly and efficiently. There are a few different types of heat exchangers that are used in today's market including spiral plate heat exchangers, shell and tube heat exchangers, plate coil heat exchangers...

  • Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers: U-Tubes not YouTubes

    On hot summer days it's nice to cool off by jumping into a cool, refreshing swimming pool. I don't have one at my house so I usually have to butter up my pool owning friends and hang out at their house all day. No matter how excruciating the heat was, pool water always seems to stay relativity the same temperature. How does the water not boil on those hotter days? I realize it takes more energy to heat larger bodies of water but it's always at just the right degrees....

Industry Information

Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

Shell and tube heat exchangers are comprised, as the name suggests, of an exterior shell with a bundle of tubes running through the middle of it. These exchangers are the most common type of tube heat exchangers used in the process, petroleum and HVAC industries, and are used widely in large chemical processes.

Shell and tube exchangers are intended for heating and cooling process fluids at high pressures and due to their design offer a large heat transfer area, making them a provider of high heat transfer efficiency. They are used widely as water to water heat exchangers and water to air heat exchangers. The larger the surface area available for heat exchange, the more efficient the heat exchange process will be. Therefore, bundles of tubes are often used to create the largest surface area possible. The shell or pressure vessel holds the bundle of tubes that are connected at either end. The tubes themselves are hollow and act as flow channels for one fluid that runs through them, the other fluid flows around them through the shell. The tubes themselves may differ in type according to the desired results. The tube walls are made of a thermally conductive material in order to transfer heat from one substance to the other. However, as one side of the tube will have a different temperature to the other side of the tube, it must be durable enough to undergo structure stress during the heat exchange process.

As shell and tube exchangers are usually used for high pressure applications in the first place, the added structural stress of temperature shifts should also be considered when deciding upon a tube material. Metals such as copper alloy (, steel – both stainless and carbon, nickel and titanium are ideal choices. Waste heat from industrial manufacturing processes can be fed into a shell and tube heat exchanger and used to heat a substance for another stage in the process. This method of heat exchange is not only efficient, but also conserves energy and is more cost-effective than relying on another source of heat production. Shell and tube heat exchangers are found in steam engines, power plants and nuclear power plants. They are often classified by the number of times the materials pass through the tubes in a complete cycle. Shell and tube heat exchangers can be used for both liquids and gases as both are able to transfer heat. Shell and tube heat exchangers serve a wide range of applications in compressor systems, hydraulic systems, stationary engines, pain systems, vapor recovery systems, air dryers, lube oil consoles, and several marine applications.
