Tubular Heat Exchangers
Tubular heat exchangers consist of stainless steel tubes mounted concentrically creating annular spaces for fluids to flow in a countercurrent fashion. Dimples placed in outer tubes concentrically align the inner tubes to insure uniform flow spaces and to create turbulence to enhance the heat exchanger's performance. Tubular heat exchangers can be configured in both a triple-tube design as well as a double-tube design, depending upon the nature of the product and application. Triple-tube and double-tube heat exchangers are employed as heaters and coolers. They are also employed as regenarative heat exchangers such as those found in pasteurization systems to recover heat and minimize both heating and cooling loads. Some of the unique features of double-tube and triple-tube design are outlined below.
Features
