Trust the Experts that Know Your Industry
Enerquip’s experts can help you design the optimal heat exchanger that will stand up to the most challenging industrial environments. We understand your processes, and how important corrosion resistance, safety and equipment longevity is to your plant. We take all of these factors into consideration when helping you select the exchanger type, materials of construction and the options and features that help your shell and tube heat exchanger perform efficiently.
Whether you need a pilot scale exchanger that is 2″ in diameter, or a larger full-scale exchanger up to 48″ in diameter, Enerquip has the equipment and expertise to build a wide range of exchanger types.
Enerquip’s industrial heat exchangers are used by many leading companies in a wide variety of industries, including Chemical, Biofuels, Petroleum Refining, Pulp & Paper, Waste Water, Power, US Government/Military, and more.
Heat exchangers are one of the most vital and widely used pieces of process equipment found in industrial plants. Regardless of industry, its production will likely involve some type of temperature regulation requiring a heat exchanger. Exchangers can be used for both heating and cooling. However, industrial plants and refineries most commonly use heat exchangers for cooling applications.
Heat exchangers have a broad range of industrial applications. Industrial heat exchangers are used as components of air conditioning and cooling systems, heating systems, and are used for safe temperature regulation of machinery, chemicals, water, gas, and other substances in industrial plants.
Enerquip’s exchangers are also often used to capture and transfer steam or heat exhaust that is released as a byproduct of a process so that the steam or heat can be reused elsewhere. This process improves production efficiency, saving the industrial plant time, resources, and money.
Whether you need shell and tube heat exchangers for multi-stage evaporation in an ethanol plant, condensing organics in a chemical plant, vaporizing LNG in a refinery, or for landfill gas cooling, Enerquip is the right source for dependable, high quality shell and tube exchangers you can trust.
Enerquip fabricates shell and tube heat exchangers from a wide variety of corrosion resistant stainless steel alloys, from common 304L and 316L to duplex stainless steels like 2205, 2507 and Zeron 100. We also work with higher alloys like Hastelloy, Alloy 20, Monel 600, AL-6XN, and Titanium Gr2.
Because Enerquip is also a primary supplier to the sanitary and pharmaceutical industries, we respect our customers’ concerns about cross-contamination of materials, so we do not work with carbon steel in our facility. Because of our stainless buying power, we are normally able to offer a 100% stainless steel exchanger at a competitive price compared to carbon steel. This gives you higher value and lower maintenance costs on your equipment.
Our experienced engineers can help you evaluate cost saving suggestions on higher alloy heat exchangers, like using explosion-bonded clad tubesheets and channel covers instead of solid plates, and using lap joint flanges where appropriate, instead of solid high alloy flanges.
Safety Code Compliance
You can be assured that Enerquip has your safety and the security of your facility in mind. All of our shell and tube heat exchangers are designed to TEMA C, B or R guidelines, following best practices for thermal design and construction.
We also evaluate every design using Compress codeware to ensure that your new exchanger will meet all of the safety requirements of ASME Code, along with any nozzle loadings, seismic considerations and other site conditions that can affect the stability of your equipment. Every exchanger design is reviewed and approved by a 3rd party inspector, who also provides oversight during fabrication, and witnesses the ASME hydro-test of every exchanger. We can also design and build exchangers to API-660 and other international codes where appropriate.
Features & Options
Enerquip listens to our customers and anticipates their special needs for operating and maintaining their shell and tube heat exchangers. We strive to minimize maintenance downtime, while providing safe features that help your maintenance team quickly and efficiently inspect, clean and service your exchangers. We may suggest davit arm assemblies or hinge assemblies for removing heavy bonnets, or channel covers. A few other options that we can provide:
- Insulation (non-asbestos and chloride free)
- Horizontal saddles or vertical mounting supports
- Vaccum breakers, sight glasses
- ANSI flanged, lapjoint, NPT threaded, or sanitary Tri-clamp connections
- Jaygo clamps for frequent head removal
- Twisted tape turbulators for flow enhancement and improved heat transfer
- Floating tube sheets for thermal expansion protection
- Enhanced surface finishes, up to 15Ra Electropolished
