Design Expertise

The Helpful Heat Exchanger Experts

Enerquip has a team of thermal design engineers that use state-of-the-art HTRI thermal design software, an extensive library of past designs, and a large database of product properties to design the optimal stainless steel shell and tube heat exchanger for your application. This gives you the confidence that your exchanger is designed to meet the specific process flow conditions, temperature requirements, desired thermal efficiency and physical footprint that you need.

Our engineers have the technical expertise, ASME Code and TEMA knowledge, and industry experience to design exchangers for even the toughest applications.

Enerquip starts with a design premise of smallest footprint and lowest cost possible, while ensuring safety and ease of maintenance.

Enerquip’s Thermal Design Process

Step 1: When you submit your online RFQ, or reach out to us by phone or email, one of our engineers with experience in your industry will review your process and utility data, including your materials of construction.

Step 2: We then run models in our HTRI thermal calculation software to provide options for styles and sizes, considering your cleaning requirements, code requirements, safety concerns and space constraints. You are welcome to review the design online with us to help fine-tune the design.

Step 3: We will then add the connection types of your choice, an expansion joint if required, mounting supports of your preferred type, and insulation and cladding if you request. Finally, we’ll review options for making the operation and cleaning of your exchanger easier, like hinged covers, davit arm assemblies, removable tube bundles and other features. The result is a TEMA data sheet that captures all of the process and mechanical details of your shell and tube heat exchanger, along with your preferences and any options selected.

Step 4: Once you decide to work with Enerquip and your order is received, our Design Engineers work from your TEMA data sheet and specifications, using Compress code software and SolidWorks to create 3D drawing package of your custom exchanger for your review and approval before fabrication.
