Heat Exchangers Technical Documentation
The critical issue when designing the heat exchanger is the determining of the thermal exchange coefficients reliably and accurately.
A corrugated tube is a pipe with a helical groove obtained from a plain tube by cold forming. The number of starts of the helix can be changed as well as the angle to optimize the heat transfer and performance.
One of the main problems of the austenitic stainless steel can be the intergranular corrosion. Despite of its name, stainless steel is a material that is susceptible to be corroded or oxidized
Within the different geometries of heat exchangers present in the market (as plate and gaskets, welded plates, spiral or scraped surface heat exchangers, among others) the tubular geometry is one of the most traditionally used.
