The shell and tube design is the most common heat exchanger that sees industrial use today. It is utilised in almost every industry and serves a variety of purposes.
This type of heat exchanger consists of a shell with a bundle of tubes inside it. One fluid runs through the tubes, and another fluid flows over the tubes. Heat is transferred through the walls of the tubes between the two fluids, cooling one and heating the other.
The applications include coolers for lubrication oils and OFWF for transformers, an enhanced shell and tube with double-wall arrangement to protect from cross-contamination. There are multiple arrangements possible, including U-tube, fixed tube, or a floating head configuration.
