Shell and tube heat exchangers intended for the cooling of process gases for one of the largest steel mills in Europe
This is our small contribution to one of the largest steel mills in Europe. Currently under construction. We have performed the mechanical and thermal design of two shell and tube heat exchangers intended for the cooling of process gases.
In this project, the most interesting aspect has been to fulfil the limitation of the pressure drop, adapt the design to the vertical position to reduce the space in the plant and the mechanical design of these tubular heat exchangers for high temperatures.
We are looking forward to seeing our industrial heat exchangers installed and already in operation!
Shell and tube heat exchangers technical documentation
The importance of rheology in the design of any processing plant is crucial since the sizing of many of the elements composing it is very dependent on this “resistance”, also taking special relevance with food products: heat exchangers, pipes, valves, pumps, mixers, etc.
To design a heat exchanger it is necessary to have certain data, such as the process flow rate, the temperature and the physical properties of products.
Hairpin heat exchangers have a more efficient and economical design compared to a multiple pass heat exchanger when the process requires a temperature crossing between the cold and hot fluid.
