Determine your application's most critical criteria when choosing the material for your heat exchanger.With so many factors to consider in choosing a material for your shell and tube heat exchanger, you may have a lot of questions. To start, you’ll need to decide which criteria are most critical to your operation. Criteria like thermal efficiency, cost, availability, corrosion resistance, cleanability and durability. You can then weigh the pros and cons of the...
When the pressure drop is well below the allowable maximum, the heat exchanger may not be reaching its full heat transfer rate potential.
Choosing the right heat transfer fluid for your operation involves many considerations. Here are some key details to know about HTFs.
Two of the most common types of expansion joints are metal expansion bellows (sometimes called packless expansion joints) and packed slip expansion joints.
Pressure drop is one of the most important design considerations before fabricating a shell and tube heat exchanger.
Defining the flow path is critical to the effectiveness of heat transfer and is highly variable. Baffle orientation has a major effect on these factors.
Mechanical failure can appear in several different forms, each with its own symptoms and consequences.
Choosing the right shell for your process will help optimize the rate of heat transfer.
