U tube heat exchangers is a kind of tube and shell heat exchanger, belongs to the petroleum and chemical equipment’s.
This kind of heat exchangers is named after the ‘U’ shape tube. U tube heat exchanger is composed of some main components like the tube box, shell, and tube buddle.
What’s more, it is easy to drying after the U tube heat exchangers hydrotest.
U TUBE HEAT EXCHANGERS DESIGNS
- The biggest difference about u tube heat exchanger compared with other types of heat exchanger is the tube buddle structure, the longer the tube diameter is , the longer the minimum bending radius is.
- And the u tube heat exchanger bending radius should not less than two times the outer diameter of the heat exchanger tube
- U tube heat exchanger usually designed according to the ASME Code, Section VIII, Division 1.
- This high load U tube heat exchanger can prevent the stress damage caused by container inflation during the process of heating or cooling
- As one end of the tube bundle is float, the heat exchanger can be guaranteed safety even under the extreme heat cycle.
- It is a ideal design method when the heat medium is steam.
- ANSON can manufacture U tube heat exchanger in accordance with the ASME standard, TEMA, and API for 1, 2, or 4 pass U tube heat exchanger, other special requirements are also available.
U TUBE HEAT EXCHANGERS MATERIALS:
- Please specify the type or standard you need, ASME standard or TEMA type. If you want a TEMA type heat exchanger please specify the type according to the above TEMA designation table, like TEMA Type BEM.
- Please specify the material you need, we provide material from Steel, Stainless Steel to Copper Alloys. Other material options are also available.
- Please specify the size you need. Like 1, 2, 4 or 6 pass and shell diameter, or other important dimensions you think Steel Plants / Rolling Mills / Metal Casting / Metal Forging Plants.
- Resort Hotel Hospitals Malls
- Plastic Packaging Industries
- Rubber Manufacturing Process Industries
- Pharmaceutical Industries
- Solvent Extraction Plant
FEATURES OF U TUBE HEAT EXCHANGERS:
- The tube buddle can expand or contract freely, and they will not produce thermal stress due to the temperature difference between the tube and shell, which leads a good thermal compensation performance.
- The structure is simple, with only one tubesheet and less sealing surface, thus,the price is low.
- It is easy to make the u tube heat exchanger cleaning and maintenance, which is because the tube buddle can be drawn from the shell body.
- This kind of heat exchanger has a light quality, is suitable for the situation with high temperature and high pressure.
