Tube Bundled Heat Exchangers

About General:

Tube bundled  heat Exchangers are primarily suited for heat transfer between various liquids and gases with or without phase change. Excellent results have been obtained using water, thermal oil, wet steam etc. to warm or cool liquids and gases. The standard series consists of 6 sizes with heat transfer surfaces ranging from 0.5 to 500 m2.

TIPO is a manufacturer of direct replacement tube bundles. We can cross reference other manufacturers’ tube bundle model numbers. All units are constructed with ASME/ASTM code grade materials. ASME “U”,  “UM”, and “R” stamps available.

Range of application of Tube Bundled Heat Exchangers

Tube bundle heat exchangers have a great versatility in their use and are applied in different branches of the industry, e.g.:

• Power station techniques
• Machine industry
• Gear manufacturing
• Chemical Industry
• Process engineering

Design and Function

construction and includes all connecting, joining and fastening elements. The standard smooth tube bundle to be installed is a two-way model. The exchanger design variation with U-tubes (U-design), the heat exchangers consist basically of housing and tube bundle. The housing is a welded the variation with the floating tube base (D-design) or with a fix compensator (K-design) all of them allow for large changes in length between the casing and the tube bundle due to heat expansion.
An intermediate tube bottom, having insert tubes arranged concentrically in the tubes, is located in the inlet chamber; with these insert tubes projecting out on both sides from the tubes and forming annular spaces therewith. The heat exchanger has an inlet tube bottom and an outlet tube bottom, in which are fastened the ends of tubes which connect the bottoms and through which the medium of high inlet temperature flows.
Its for  cooling  a  medium having a high inlet temperature. Toward the inlet chamber, the annular spaces open into an intermediate chamber limited by the inlet tube bottom and the intermediate tube bottom; in the opposite direction, the annular spaces open into a deflecting or reversing chamber sealingly covering the insert tubes.
