Shell And Tube Heat Exchanger



A shell and tube heat exchanger is a class of heat exchanger designs. It is the most frequent type of Heat Exchanger in oil refineries and other large chemical processes, and is matched for higher-pressure applications. As its name implies, this sort of Heat Exchanger consists of a shell with a bundle of tubes inside it.
One fluid runs through the tubes, and another fluid flows over the tubes to transfer heat between the two fluids. The set of tubes is called a tube bundle, and may be composed by several types of tubes: plain, longitudinally finned, etc.
