In thermal power plants, the steam surface condenser is the heart of the operation — and a key element to the plant’s water-steam cycle. A condenser is critical in that its efficiency directly affects the plant’s power-generating capacity, which in turn influences operating costs and the bottom line.
Shell-and-tube designs incorporate fixed or floating tubesheets, fixed or removable tube bundles and expansion joints as needed to create an effective heat transfer vessel. Gain a better understanding of the TEMA types to improve your selection process.
Among the most common types of heat transfer equipment used in industrial applications are the various configurations of shell-and-tube heat exchangers. Suitable for a range of pressure and temperature conditions, shell-and-tube heat exchangers can be robust enough to handle corrosive or even lethal fluids.
A partnership between Goodway Technologies and Multistack, a manufacturer of chiller systems, is intended to simplify the selection of cleaning chemicals for ensuring heat transfer and efficiencies remain optimal. Owners of Multistack chillers can use an online tool from Goodway to identify the type and amount of cleaner to use as well as how long to circulate the cleaning fluids.
Freeze drying is a dehydration technique commonly used in food processing as well as biological, pharmaceutical and biomedical applications. In these technical scenarios, the application of heat for evaporative drying will either degrade the material to be dried or change its form and structure (Zhang et al., 2018).
Shell-and-tube heat exchangers — first introduced in the 1900s — have long been used in all types of process applications because of their robust design. Shell-and-tube heat exchangers are able to withstand high pressures and temperatures, and these features are among the reasons for their wide use.
Named Fabricator of the Year for 2018, BTD Manufacturing has been growing steadily since it started out as Bismarck Tool and Die back in 1979. Over the years, it has acquired several companies and expanded its repertoire of custom services. One of those companies was Impulse Manufacturing in Dawsonville, Ga., which joined the BTD team in 2015.
