A tubular heat exchanger (THE) is used to warm or cool a product by exchanging heat between the process fluid and a service fluid, which is typically water, ice water, glycol or steam. The hot or cold service fluid flows around the tubes within the THE and heat is transferred between the product and the media.
The rate of heat transfer is dependent on the tubular heat exchanger configuration, temperature differential, size of tubes, turbulence in the flow and flow velocity. Different configurations are available, and the selection of the best solution is based on the properties of the process fluid and production goals. Our experience and expertise will help ensure you receive the best solution for your specific needs in terms of production goals, costs, efficiency and product quality.
How the ParaTube Tubular Heat Exchanger works
The THE is used to warm or cool a product by exchanging heat between the product and a service fluid, which is typically water, ice water, glycol or steam. The hot or cold service fluid flows around the tubes within the THE and heat is transferred between the product and the service fluid.
Tubular heat exchangers are suitable for many applications and are commonly used for fluids with low to medium viscosity and smaller to large particles.
