Our company presents U Tube Bundle Heat Exchanger from our line of conventional chemical equipment to the esteemed clients from the Gulf, Africa, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. This heat exchanger is engineered with Stainless Steel 304, Stainless Steel 316 and Stainless Steel 316L grades and other alloys, making use of state-of-the-art process technology, is widely applicable in food products, dyes and intermediates, resins, processing chemical, pharmaceuticals and in effluent treatments. This U Tube Bundle Heat Exchanger works well in heating liquids for methodical distillation.
The U-tube head (U) is a simple heat exchanger design that requires multiple U tubes, only one tube sheet, no rear-end head and no expansion joints. This assembly facilitates easy removal of the bundle. The thermal stress problem is eliminated as each of the tubes is free to contract/ expand separately. Only one issue is that replacement of individual tube is not possible with the exception being in the outer rows, and an even number of tube passes is required. Because of the 17.7 tube bend limit of Heat Exchanger, some tubes are lost in the center. The tube side mechanical cleaning of the bends is also tough. Due to flow-induced vibration, the tubes in the outermost row can experience problem. U-tube head heat exchanger is an economical design, since there is no need for the second tube sheet.
