Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger

WCR Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers are intended for heating or cooling process fluids, they are suitable for cooling water soluble oil solutions in quenching tanks and for closed circuit cooling of electrical equipment using demineralised water. The shell side typically holds the process fluid, and the tube side contains water or an ethylene glycol from a chiller unit.  

WCR recommends Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers for processes containing highly corrosive (to gasket materials) fluids or gas mediums.  They can be used to either condense gas or reclaim heat from exhaust gas.  Shell & Tube will also be the choice for any high-pressure applications over 400 psi. (maximum 750 psi)

Standard Shell & Tube Product Range:

  • 2" - 24" in.   (5 - 60 cm)    Fixed-Tube bundles

  • 8” - 20” in. (20 - 50 cm)   Straight-Tube (removable) bundles.

  • 3” - 8” in.     (7 - 20 cm)    U-Tube fixed and removable tube bundles

  • TUBE:  Stainless Steel, Titanium, and Copper Standard
