Why Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers are popular?
Why Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers are popular: Shell and tube heat exchangers are one of the most popular types of heat exchanger because of their flexibility to accommodate a wide range of temperatures and pressures.
Shell and tube heat exchangers have been used for more than 150 years in almost every industrial application. This product design is widely popular, mostly for its versatility in terms of types of services.
The shell and tube heat exchanger are very popular and the heat exchanger of choice in the Chemical Processing Industry. Some of the key benefits that make the shell and tube heat exchanger so popular are they can meet process requirements in almost every industry or application. They are highly efficient and reliable. The shell and tube heat exchangers are built with many different materials of construction and they can handle a wide range of pressures and temperature requirements. Finally, the shell and tube heat exchanger is easy to maintain. When most people think of heat exchangers they immediately think of the shell and tube heat exchanger.
There are many different types of heat exchangers besides the shell and tube heat exchanger such as plate and frame, brazed plate, radiator type, and graphite block heat exchangers. The shell and tube heat exchanger was the heat exchanger of choice and the most popular heat exchanger used in industry 150 years ago and is still popular today.
The Niche Fluoropolymer Product shell and tube heat exchanger was the first heat exchanger developed using fluoropolymer tubes and the patented honeycomb tube-to-tube sheet joint which has been successfully used for over 55 years. If you operate the Niche FPP shell and tube heat exchanger within its design parameters they will last for a very, very long time which makes it the most popular fluoropolymer shell and tube heat exchanger in the industry. In the words of the legendary heat transfer engineer Don Nelson from American Standard/ ITT Standard “All heat exchangers work, some just work better than others”.
