Tubular Heat Exchangers | Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers
The decision to purchase a heat exchanger
The decision to purchase a tubular heat exchanger is usually very complex. SACOME engineers are ready to analyze the most unusual requirements, by using the latest design software tools and more than 6.000 references all over the world, that being made into our Know-How.
Since 1998 we are official member of HTRI (Heat Transfer Research, Inc.) which gives us direct access to the latest software trends in the field of heat treatment. This fact allows us to have a wide capacity of technical answer in the calculation and design of our tubular heat exchangers & shell and tube heat exchangers.
Throughout our Organization, we offer a special dedication to each of the projects and carefully study the designs of our tubular heat exchangers and shell & tube heat exchangers, in order to offer all our clients fully design solutions totally adapted to the project and customized manufacturing. We guarantee the quality of our heat exchangers and their reliability in the application processes.
Our modern software allows us to have a wide answering capability in a very short time. SACOME studies carefully every application to manufacture our tubular heat exchangers according to a perfect engineering and design in order to offer the most suitable heat exchanger for our customer’s projects.
Advantages of Tubular Heat Exchangers
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.
The main advantages of tubular heat exchangers are as follow:
- Low maintenance cost
- High working pressure
- High working temperature
- Processing of particulate or fibre products
- Easy inspection and disassembly
- High security in aseptic processes
- Easy to enlarge

Corrugated Tube Heat Exchangers
SACOME has its own corrugation technology for the manufacturing of corrugated tube. 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.
Furthermore, the mechanical properties of the original plain tube are not reduced, being this recognized by TÜV. (Independent German certification company worldwide recognized).

Heat Exchangers Technical Documentation
The starting point in the design of any heat exchange system is the definition of how the thermal properties evolve throughout the process, whether heating or cooling.
SACOME Heat Exchangers frequently asked questions with regard to the engineering, design and manufacture of our tubular heat exchangers & shell and tube heat exchangers.
The critical issue when designing the heat exchanger is the determining of the thermal exchange coefficients reliably and accurately.
