A shell and tube heat exchanger is a class of heat exchanger designs


A shell and tube heat exchanger is a class of heat exchanger designs. It is the most common type of heat exchanger in oil refineries and other large chemical processes, and is suited for higher-pressure applications. As its name implies, this type of heat exchanger consists of a shell (a large pressure vessel) with a bundle of tubes inside it. One fluid runs through the tubes, and another fluid flows over the tubes (through the shell) to transfer heat between the two fluids. The set of tubes is called a tube bundle, and may be composed of several types of tubes: plain, longitudinally finned, etc.

Volfram offers Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers with Smooth Tubes and Corrugated Tube through its fixed sized ranges and customized ranges of heat exchangers for applications such as pre -heaters, hot water generators, and condensers, re -boilers. The heat exchangers are designed on the basis of our extensive thermal and mechanical experience acquired over the period of time through successful installation of units.

VOLFRAM offers all type of ASME configurations for all types of applications in Stainless steel construction. VOLFRAM has an entire range of standard heat exchangers in single pass and multi-pass design which helps in quick selection of the heat exchanger to give an optimal and economical solution.
