Brazed Heat Exchangers

The brazed plate heat exchanger is the most advanced form of the compact plate heat exchanger especially designed for a wide range of applications in both process and hydronic applications. These heat exchangers are also widely used for refrigeration applications as evaporators, condensers and sub-coolers

 

Operating Principle
The brazed plate heat exchanger has a simple operating principle. Based on the plate and nozzle orientation, each fluid passes through alternative channels within the heat exchanger. All plate material and nozzles are Stainless Steel 316 with 99.9% copper used for brazing the heat exchanger together.

An extremely high heat transfer coefficient is attained due to the flow characteristics in each channel. A specially designed and tested chevron pattern causes a turbulent flow of the fluid resulting in higher heat transfer.

Advantages of the Brazed Heat Exchanger

Compact:
Due to the high efficiency of the brazed plate heat exchangers, these heat exchangers are often half the size of conventional shell & tube heat exchangers. The smaller footprint also makes it easier to be installed on skid systems and portable equipment packages.

High Efficiency:
Due to the turbulent flow of the fluid in the channels, the heat transfer coefficients of our brazed plate heat exchangers are 3-5 times higher than that of a conventional Shell & Tube heat exchanger for a similar application.

Rugged Construction:
The brazed plate heat exchanger is brazed using 99.9% copper. The copper provides a strong bond when heated in a special furnace, keeping the plates bonded together. The heat exchangers have a hig pressure-temperature rating. All our copper brazed heat exchangers are rated for 413psig, 406 degrees..

Closer Approach
The brazed plate heat exchanger can provide a temperature approach of 1 degree F. This allows for maximum utilization of waste heat recovery.

24-Hour Service:
We can be reached on a 24 hour basis, 7 days a week for any replacement of heat exchangers on an emergency basis

Shell & Coil
The shell and coiled tube heat exchangers are constructed using circular layers of helically corrugated tubes placed inside a light compact shell. The fluid in each layer flows in the opposite direction to the layer surrounding it, producing a criss-cross pattern. The large number of closely packed tubes creates a significant heat transfer surface within a light compact shell. The alternate layers create a swift uniform heating of fluids increasing the total heat transfer coefficient. The corrugated tubes produce a turbulent flow where the desired feature of fluctuating velocities is achieved. This haphazard movement of fluid particles reduces deposit buildup by performing a "scoop and lift" action. The connection locations and angle of entry is specially selected to reduce the probability of debris buildup.


Shell and Coil Construction Features
The shell and coil tube series are manufactured as a singe unit with no removable parts. The coiled tube bundles are welded to a compact tube sheet located within the entry and exit connections. The cylindrical shell is terminated by hemi-spherical heads. Design variations include smooth or grooved tubes, angled or 90 connections in flanged or NPT termination, and 316L stainless or titanium components.

Advantages of the shell and tube heat exchangers:
The shell and coil design is the perfect choice whenever high heat transfer rates, compact design and low maintenance costs are high priorities. Other benefits include:

  • High Performance: the unique coil arrangement has a large heat transfer area meaning high heat transfer coefficients.
  • Compact and Lightweight: closely packed tubes makes our shell and coil exchangers compact and lightweight. Small footprint makes it easy to install where space is limited and hard to access.
  • Low Maintenance Costs: corrugated tube design produces a high turbulent flow, which reduces deposit build-up and fouling. This means longer operating cycles between scheduled cleaning intervals.
  • Low Installation Costs: vertical installation makes it ideal for hydronic heating and cooling systems where space is an issue.
  • Higher Temperature Differentials: helical design allows for higher temperatures and extreme temperature differentials without high stress levels and costly expansion joints.
  • Flexible Designs: variety of model types and configurations allow shell and coil heat exchangers to be used with a wide range of pressures, temperatures, and flows.
  • Low Pressure Drop:
  • Easy selection based on sub-station space requirements and heat or cooling load.
  • Units kept in stock for immediate delivery.

Shell and Coil Applications:
The shell and coil design were designed specifically for the hydronic markets including:

  • Heating Systems:
  • Chilled Water Systems:
  • Ground Water Systems:
  • Residential Use:
  • District Heating Systems: heating systems that distribute heat from one or more heating sources to multiple buildings.

Shell and tube heat exchangers are becoming the most popular device for the transfer of heat in industrial process applications. Our PS and PW-type U-tube heat exchangers transfer large amounts of heat at a relatively lost cost, provide lots effective tube surface while minimizing the requirements of floor space, liquid volume and weight and are available in a variety of diameters and lengths. The PS and PW-type U-tube heat exchangers are designed for a wide range of liquid to liquid (PW) and steam to liquid (PS) applications.

The shell and tube heat exchanger is constructed using stainless steel tubes and a carbon steel shell. It is manufactured using the most advanced technology available and is specifically engineered for a wide range of applications. Every unit is designed, manufactured and tested to meet the quality requirements of the ASME code: Section VIII Division #1 and ISO 9002.

Features

  • U-tube construction
  • Units designed for liquid to liquid (PW) and steam to liquid (PS) applications.
  • Available in 2 or 4 pass construction.
  • Removable tube bundles for convenience in cleaning and inspection.
  • Strong, durable construction with stainless steel tubes and rugged cast-iron or steel head in standard units. (Optional materials are available).
  • Coil and baffle arrangements designed to maximize heat transfer performance.
  • Tubes expanded into stationary tubesheet allow for tube expansions and contractions, due to thermal fluctuations, without causing stresses on the joints. Welding tubes to the tubesheet is optional.

    Advantages

    The advantage of the shell and tube design cannot be ignored. Each unit comes with:

  • connections that come in standardized sizes for easy assembly and feature additional thread and surface protection for clean installation
  • U-bend tubes expanded into a tubesheet which allow for tube expansions and contractions due to thermal fluctuations.
  • gaskets that are made of high quality compressed fibres which lends to reusability.
  • a standard cast-iron or steel head for heavy duty services (also available as a spare part).
  • saddle attaches which make for quick and easy mounting.
  • punched baffles with minimal clearances between tubes guaranteeing correct fluid flow and minimized bypass
  • a welded shell protected with high quality paint for corrosion resistance.
  • stainless steel tubes which allow for strong, durable performance over a wide range of applications. Unique tube bundle layout (chevron corrugated pattern) minimizes deposit buildup at the edges and optimises media flow for high velocity flow turbulence.

    Applications

    Shell and tube heat exchangers are frequently selected for such applications as:

  • Process liquid or gas cooling
  • Process or refrigerant vapor or steam condensing
  • Process liquid, steam or refrigerant evaporation
  • Process heat removal and preheating of feed water
  • Thermal energy conservation efforts, heat recovery
  • Compressor, turbine and engine cooling, oil and jacket water
  • Hydraulic and lube oil cooling

    Shell and tube heat exchangers have been around for over 150 years. Their thermal technology and manufacturing methods are well defined and applied by the modern manufacturer. Tube surfaces range from standard to exotic metals with plain or enhanced surface characteristics. They can help provide the least costly mechanical design for the flows, liquids and temperatures involved.
