Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers
This simple but effective type of heat exchanger comprises of a shell containing a number of tubes which isolates both fluids but allows the exchange of heat between the fluids producing very efficient heating or cooling. This type of exchanger has been successfully employed for many years within the gas, oil and petro-chemical industries.
P&L have the capability and experience to design and manufacture shell and tube heat exchangers in the usual formats, AEM, BEU, BXU etc.
We can offer the exchangers in a variety of materials of construction, carbon steel, austenitic stainless steel, duplex stainless steel etc. and design codes TEMA, PD5500, EN13455 and ASME VIII Div.1
The thermal design is either performed in house or by an associate engineer to ensure that all of the clients requirements are met with regards to process efficiency and equipment costs.
Each exchanger is designed specifically for the clients process.
The capability to design and manufacture both heat exchangers and pressure vessels creates a single source of supply for key plant items.
