Heat Transfer

Improve exchanger operability and efficiency through tube-side enhancement

The authors’ company has been serving the process industry for more than 35 yr to improve tube-side heat transfer in tubular heat exchangers. Its main application area is the use of a proprietary tube insert technology in new equipment design for exchangers with laminar tube-side flow, where considerable size reductions are achievable due to the increased tube-side performance.

The authors’ company has been serving the process industry for more than 35 yr to improve tube-side heat transfer in tubular heat exchangers. Its main application area is the use of a proprietary tube insert technologya in new equipment design for exchangers with laminar tube-side flow, where considerable size reductions are achievable due to the increased tube-side performance. An increased focus exists for the use of this technology in heat exchanger revamps. Aside from the obvious potential of increased duty and, therefore, increased exchanger efficiency, applying this technology can also often provide improved operability. Revamp considerations The main driving forces to undertake heat
