STRAIGHT TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER
This type of tube bundle heat exchanger is characterised by a heating surface consisting of straight tubes which are fixed in the tube plates at both sides. The tube bundle usually is not pullable at this type of heat exchanger but build a tightly connected unit with the shell. An exception here are the straight tube heat exchangers with a so-called floating head. Details on this and on the straight tube heat exchangers as a whole, we would like to explain to you in an in-depth conversation.
Häufigste Anwendung: Dampf kondensieren und unterkühlen
- undercooling of steam is very good to handle
- easy to clean
- usually smaller pressure drop in the tube side as with u-tubes
