Process Design Considerations

Understanding your product is critical to a successful design.

Please fill out the following planning sheet as thoroughly as possible. If you are unable to answer any of the questions below, leave them open. You may be asked to send us a sample of your product and our lab technicians will confidentially develop a profile for your product. This service is free

Process Considerations

Product Properties (if known)

What is the temperature profile of the product?

What is the flow rate of the product?

  • Flow Rate

  • Batch Size

What is the profile of the available Media?

Please enter all that apply

Other product/process considerations

Installation Considerations

  • Be sure to calculate space for removal of tubes for maintenance and cleaning. This will require clear space equal to the length of the heat exchanger

  • Custom lengths are also available to fit your space requirements.

  • Height and width of the assembled heat exchanger varies with the amount of tubes.

Length

Options Tube Lengths Nominal Actual Overall Length Height & Width
10' 12' TBD Based on Process Requirements
20' (Standard) 22' TBD Based on Process Requirements
30' 32' TBD Based on Process Requirements
