HT31 – Tubular Heat Exchanger

 

HT31 – Tubular Heat Exchanger

The tubular heat exchanger is the simplest form of heat exchanger and consists of two concentric (coaxial) tubes carrying the hot and cold fluids. In these miniature versions the tubes are separated into sections to reduce the overall length and to enable the temperature at points along both fluid streams to be measured.

Description

The tubular heat exchanger is the simplest form of heat exchanger and consists of two concentric (coaxial) tubes carrying the hot and cold fluids. In these miniature versions the tubes are separated into sections to reduce the overall length and to enable the temperature at points along both fluid streams to be measured.

Two versions are available, the HT31 is a basic version with two sections and a single interim temperature measurement point.

On both our HT31 and HT36 heat exchangers, the inner tube is used for the hot fluid and the outer annulus for cold fluid. This minimises heat loss from the exchanger without the need for additional insulation.

The inner tubes are constructed from stainless steel and the outer annulus from clear acrylic, providing visualisation of the heat exchanger construction and minimising thermal losses.

The tubes can be dismantled for cleaning.
