Heat Exchangers

Heat exchangers offer a cost-effective, energy-efficient pollution control solution. All businesses need to control costs and maximize resources while conforming to environmental safety codes and requirements, and heat exchangers are an excellent option for catalytic oxidizing and thermal recuperation applications.

Advantages of Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

Heat exchangers optimize energy by ensuring that process streams do not come into direct contact with one another during pollutant elimination. This key advantage is supported by other unique benefits over other types of thermal transfer equipment, including:

  • Easier, more efficient operability
  • Reduced wear on mechanical components
  • Increased durability
  • Easier maintenance

Shell-and-tube heat exchangers offer particular benefits over other thermal transfer pollutant reduction technologies. Specifically, they are able to maintain stable temperatures and optimal levels of internal pressure more easily, since they are less likely to become clogged with condensate gases or particulate matter. This, in turn, shell and tube heat exchangers reduce operating costs and helps to prevent costly downtime for system maintenance and repair.

As with all its products and industrial systems, Tech-Fab is pleased to offer custom design and manufacture of heat exchangers and other pollution control equipment. Our proven team of capable engineers and design professionals has the skill and experience to meet any performance requirements your application demands.

How Heat Exchangers Work

A heat exchanger is a device that allows two mediums (liquid or gas) to exchange heat without mixing with one another. This is achieved by running a hot material next to a cold material while keeping a wall in between them, thereby only allowing heat to be exchanged via conduction. Typically, heat exchangers have tubes running through them that allow one material to move through the tubes while the other material flows around them. Through the process of thermal equilibrium, the warm material is cooled and the cool material is warmed. The reason why fins are often incorporated into heat exchangers is to increase surface area, which improves the efficiency of the process.
