What is a heat exchanger?

A heat exchanger is a device that transfers heat energy from one medium to another. For example, a gas cooler might be used in a heat recovery system to generate steam or hot thermal oil. A condenser cools down hot gas past its dew point, condensing it into liquid. Different heat exchangers work in different ways, but they always involve the transfer of heat energy.

Heat exchangers are used in a huge range of industries, manufacturing processes, and the transport of goods.

Types of heat exchanger

There are many different types of heat exchangers, each suited to different purposes and applications. At Sterling Thermal Technology, we specialise in all varieties of heat exchanger manufacturing. If you have a specific requirement, get in touch today to find out how we can help.

Some common varieties of heat exchanger include:

Compact fin heat exchangers

This variety of heat exchanger is used in sectors including marine, oil and gas and power generation. They help to save space through a compact design that effectively transfers heat. Find out more about compact heat exchangers.

Single tube heat exchangers

While shell and tube heat exchangers consist of a number of tubes within a shell, a single tube heat exchanger is a more simple design. They’re used in many industries including food and beverages, power generation, chemical, and many others.

Shell and tube heat exchangers

These consist of a number of tubes contained within a cylindrical shell. One fluid flows through the inner tubes, while the other flows around the tubes. Shell and tube heat exchangers are a highly efficient form of heat exchanger.
