U-TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER
This type of tube bundle heat exchanger is characterised by a heating surface consisting of u-shape bent tubes which are fixed in the tube plate only on one side. The tube bundle is pullable at this type of heat exchanger. Thus you can receive a new bundle as spar part while the shell can be re-used. Also you can pull out the tube bundle for cleaning purposes of bundle and shell.
- The tube-bundle can freely expand in the shell so that mechanical stress will not happen
- The tube-bundle is pullable / exchangeable
- usually not so expensive than comparing straight tube heat exchangers
