Shell & Tube heat exchangers are the most common design for many applications. We provide a wide variety of applications based on the most suitable design and materials to ensure a cost efficient and reliable solution. The full range provides standardized product lines for an optimal price/quality ratio as well as customized designs for the most demanding duties in oil & gas, power generation, marine, refrigeration and many other industries.
A Box Cooler is a vessel water cooling system. It comprises a U-tube bundle that is fitted in the sea chest on the side of a vessel, saving space in the engine room. The sea chest is equipped with inlet and outlet grids. Cooling sea water enters through the inlet grid and flows along the U-tube bundle to the outlet grid, thus cooling the water inside the tubes. The cooling effect is achieved by the forced circulation of sea water when the vessel is moving or by natural convection when it is stationary.
The product line Double Tube Systems comprises various types of shell-and-tube heat exchangers and skid systems. Our products are designed and manufactured in close cooperation with our customers with our focus on achieving joint success devoted to developing technical improvements.
Different applications require different designs for an optimal fit, so we provide plain tube, low fin tube and plate fin solutions for your application. The plain tube design will excell when media have similar heat transfer capabilities, where the plate fin design will have the best possible performance if there is a substantial difference in heat transfer rate, for example when cooling oil with water. The low fin solution is the hybrid between the previous two designs in order to further optimize on flow, pressure drop and velocities of media.
Most of the industrial processes require heat exchanger equipment and miscellaneous pressure vessels. The great variety of industrial processes and applications require a wide capability of performing complex thermal and mechanical design as well as the capacity and experience in manufacturing heavy equipment made of special materials to withstand demanding operating conditions.
Optimization of the global efficiency of a power plant based on the Rankine Cycle, requires the incorporation of highly specialized equipment that supports the maximization of the efficiency of the steam cycle, reducing the primary energy consumption, minimizing the environmental impact and helping to optimize the OPEX and consequently the return on the investment.
Since the invention of the Switch Condenser in 1954 we have delivered about 1500 Switch Condensers worldwide. We have continuously developed the mechanical as well as the process design of the Switch Condensers. In particular, we have adapted the special designed fin tube system composed of rectangular fins to the newest requirement of the PA process, mainly to the increasing feedstock loading of the air.
