FluidEX® Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers are a simple but effective heat exchanger, consisting of a cylindrical shell which contains a bundle of tubes.
In most applications, the hot fluid flows over the outside of the tubes and the coolant flows through the tubes exchanging the heat between the thermally conductive materials used in the heat exchanger design. The flexibility of the design means that shell and tube heat exchangers provide an ideal cooling solution for a variety of Marine, Hydraulic, Rail, Industrial and Leisure applications.
FluidEX® Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers range includes hydraulic oil coolers, marine oil coolers, charge air coolers and swimming pool heat exchangers, all of which feature a fully floating tube bundle designed to prevent fatigue from thermal expansion and improve serviceability.
In addition, the FluidEX® 2700 and 2800 Series Heat Exchangers are fitted with twin seals and witness rings as standard to provide maximum protection against cross fluid contamination.
Our shell and tube heat exchangers are designed to be as flexible as possible. By changing the materials of the headers and tubes, the heat exchangers can be used in fresh water and marine environments. We can also adjust the number of fluid passes on both circuits ensuring that the heat exchanger can perform at its most optimal level before increasing the size. This can improve efficiency and reduce costs for our customers. For more specialist requirements, however we can design shell and tube heat exchangers with unique characteristics making them a perfect fit for your equipment.
