If you have any questions, please contact us. Heat exchangers are widely used for thermal transfer between fluids. Shell and tube heat exchangers are one of the important types of exchangers used for this purpose. They are used in applications where fluids are regularly heated or cooled to meet diverse application requirements. These heat exchangers are equipped with shell and tubes for thermal transfer, thus the name.

Types of Used Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers Available at JM Industrial

We buy and sell following types of used shell and tube heat exchangers:

  • U-Tube Heat Exchangers: The tubes in the tube bundle of these heat exchangers are bent to U-shape and secured using a tubeplate. These U-shaped tubes lend the name to this device. The bent tubes float freely in the shell and can contract and expand easily. The heat exchangers are generally used in applications where expansion is expected as the result of temperature differences.
  • Floating Head Exchangers: This exchanger features a design that is a combination of a U-tube heat exchanger and fixed tube sheet exchanger. On its one end, the tube sheet is of floating type to accommodate expansion and on the other end, it is stationary.
  • Fixed Tube Sheet Exchangers: They feature two sheets that are welded to the shell, and they remain stationary. These heat exchangers are not suited for applications where expansion may be expected due to temperature differences.

Working of Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers Explained

A shell and tube heat exchanger is made of four parts – a front header, a rear header, tube bundle, and shell.

  • Front Header: This is the part through which the fluid enters the exchanger and passes through its tubes.
  • Rear Header: This is the part that holds the fluid leaving the tubes. Sometimes, the fluid returns to the front header from the rear header. This mainly occurs in equipment with multiple passes for tubes.
  • Tube Bundle: It comprises tube sheets, tubes, tie rods, and baffle sheets. The tie rods keep the bundle together.
  • Shell: It holds the tube bundle.

The fluid enters the device through the front header and leaves through the rear header. In tube-side flow, the fluid passes through tube bundles, which are secured by metal plates that are known as tubeplates or tubesheets. In shell side flow, the fluid starts at the shell inlet, passes through these tubes, and exits through outlets. The headers on the tube side act as reservoirs and they are often split into sections depending on the heat exchanger types.

A shell and tube heat exchanger can be designed as single-phase and two-phase device. In a single-phase exchanger, the phase of the fluid remains constant throughout, whereas in a two-phase device the fluid’s phase may change.
