Heat Transfers

What Are Tube Heat Exchangers And Their Many Uses

A tube heat exchanger is a heat transfer device that may take thermal energy from one substance and transfers it completely to another. Essentially the most common heat exchanger design readily available, the tube and shell heat exchanger is needed in a range of residential and industrial applications. As the name indicates, tube and shell heat exchangers include an outer shell that houses some encased tubes which circulate fluids. Heat can be transferred between the liquid inside of the tubes and the surrounding fluid which fills up the rest of the shell.

Features and Benefits

The tube and shell heat exchanger will be the industry standard for heat exchangers, and its layout is based on well-established design principles that have evolved within the last 150 years. Due to its somewhat construction, the tube and shell system is sturdy and well-suited to working at high temperatures and pressures. Its most important advantage is that it was created to transfer enormous amounts of heat in a somewhat short time span at the lowest cost possible. Since the design is so popular, manufacturers can quickly produce them in large quantities and modify designs as needed for use in specific scenarios.

Real World Applications

A tube and shell heat exchanger can often be used to heat or cool a gas or liquid or transform its phase to a completely another state. An ideal example may be found at the local power generation station, where water is actually heated to produce the steam that drives a turbine and provides electricity. They are additionally widely used in heavy industry and manufacturing to spread unwanted heat or to convert a hot gas to a liquid state for storage or transport. In addition, many common household appliances like refrigerators, air conditioners, and baseboard heaters utilize tube and shell heat exchangers in some capacity to operate correctly.

Considerations and Costs

Cost is often the first criteria deemed when sizing tube and shell heat exchangers, although there are also other factors that are equally important on the subject of finding the right heat exchanger for a particular job. Such factors can include operating temperature ranges, fluid viscosity, and the flow rates of the circulating medium used in the design. Commonly, manufacturers of tube and shell heat exchangers provide heat transfer ratings for their systems which allow consumers to have some idea of their entire efficiency. As with every other industrial or perhaps residential heat exchange device, it's a wise decision to research all the available alternatives before purchasing a particular tube and shell heat exchanger manufacturer or model.

Sizing shell and tube heat exchangers for a particular job can be tricky, and custom heat exchangers may be necessary for demanding situations. For common applications, used shell and tube heat exchangers will usually suffice as long as the unit in question has been well-maintained and comes from a reliable manufacturer with a history of quality.
