The Shell & Tube Exchangers is one of the most complex yet efficient systems used in heating liquids and gases. This is commonly sought for oil refineries and high end chemical processes. It is also suitable for extremely high pressure applications.
The shell and tube heat exchanger is one of the most popular heat exchanger due to its flexibility in design which allows for various temperatures and pressures. The shell & tube exchanger consists of four major components namely the shell, tube bundle, front header and the rear header. In this type of heat exchanger the fluid flows within the tubes and over the tubes within the shell to reach the appropriate temperatures.
