Ideal when a temperature cross exists, or a close temperature approach is desired due to its single-pass configuration that allows for true countercurrent flow.
Due to the geometry of hairpins, the equipment takes up less space relative to the Shell & Tube alternative.
Our unique closure technology allows for pressures exceeding 10,000 psi.
Cyclic or Shock Service
Large-radius U-bends and all terminal connections located at the same end allows for more extreme thermal expansion without the need for an expansion joint.
Extreme Terminal Temperature Differential
Independent-tube sheets and closure components eliminate differential thermal expansion across a single-tube sheet design, as is typically encountered with conventional Shell & Tube.
In many applications, performance can be achieved by a single hairpin as opposed to multiple Shell & Tube exchangers, resulting in lower capital costs, as well as future maintenance.
Easy to clean, and eliminates the need for expansion joints or packed joints.
Separate Tube Sheets
Handles high temperature differences and cycling more effectively.
Durable Baffle Cage
Baffles are welded to tie rods without “sleeves” or internal nuts.
Moveable Support Brackets
Allow shell expansion and contraction; eliminate sliding plates; slotted on all four sides for flexible installation and future additions.
