Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers - Operating Principle

Shell and tube heat exchangers facilitate the transfer of heat between two fluids with temperature differences. They are composed of a finite set of tubes (tube bundle) housed within a closed shell. The tube bundle can make multiple passes within the shell, promoting heat exchange.

During operation, one fluid flows through the tubes while a second fluid is forced to pass through the shell and over the exterior of the tubes. The presence of internal baffles is common, as they induce turbulence, enhance heat transfer, and prevent the deposition of dirt.

The design of a shell and tube heat exchanger takes into account the properties of the fluids, flow rates, temperature differences, and the desired final conditions to establish the required heat transfer area.

Selection of Used Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

Although the design of a tubular heat exchanger is specific to the process conditions, used equipment can be employed, leveraging all its benefits. Among the factors that influence the selection of a used shell and tube heat exchanger from Foeth's catalog, the following stand out:

  • All equipment in stock is available and ready for export, eliminating the need to wait months for equipment specification, design, and manufacturing.

  • They offer the best prices.

  • There is a wide variety of available tubular exchanger types, and they are constructed with high-quality materials.

  • They have a wide range of surface exchange area (1 - 200 m2).

  • They can be easily adapted to meet your process requirements.

  • They come from recognized manufacturers.

Types of Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers at Foeth

In Foeth's catalog, you will find the type of tubular heat exchanger you need:

  • U-tube heat exchangers: These exchangers have a double pass of the tubes through the shell, increasing the heat transfer area. They are ideal for high-temperature differences and clean fluids.

  • Fixed-head heat exchangers: The tubes are fixed to two stationary sheets within the shell. This design facilitates maintenance but limits thermal expansion.

  • Floating-head heat exchangers: These exchangers are ideal for clean fluids with high-temperature differences.

  • Spiral heat exchangers: They prevent dirt deposition and are ideal for handling process sludge, suspended solids, and viscous fluids.

  • Graphite block heat exchangers: They are ideal for highly corrosive fluids.
