The efficiency of many technological processes, as well as the durability and economics of the equipment involved, depends on the quality of the tube bundles installed in the heat exchangers.
Shell-and-tube heat exchangers are used for heating and cooling liquid and gaseous substances and are used in a number of industries, including: oil and gas processing, chemical; metallurgical and other
The use of finned tubes for the production of bundles of heat exchangers offers several advantages:
The total coefficient of heat transfer of the tube bundle increases to 50% in comparison with smooth tube units.
The required number of pipes is reduced to 40-50% in order to achieve the desired effect and, accordingly, the weight of the equipment decreases (up to 30%).
The working resource of the heat exchanger increases by 2-3 times
