Heat Exchangers

PSI has extensive knowledge of a variety of heat exchangers and can find you the best equipment depending on your application.

Heat Exchangers

Heat Exchangers are pieces of process equipment built and designed for maximum efficiency of heat transfer between two different machines or mediums. In most industrial processes, the loss of heat is very wasteful and inefficient. Because of this, heat exchangers were created to capture and reuse heat that would otherwise be lost to the environment.

In general, a heat exchanger functions by allowing a hot fluid to flow through the exchanger past a cold fluid without intermixing the two. Heat flows from the hot fluid to the cold fluid, heating the cold fluid and cooling the hot fluid. This allows the heat to be transported and reused rather than simply discarded. The two fluids will flow past each other, with one usually being in a narrow pipe while the other flows outside the pipe in a surrounding shell.

There many different types of heat exchangers; some more appropriate for certain environments than others. Some have built-in dividers to separate the heat storage, while others allow the mixing of heat. Of these different types, each one fits into one of three larger classifications depending on its type of flow.

Fin Fan Heat Exchangers

A Fin Fan Heat Exchanger, is a type of heat exchanger used to cool different processes in the refining, petrochemical, and chemical processing industries.

Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

processes, and it is suited for higher-pressure applications as well. As the name implies, this type of heat exchanger consists of a shell

Plate and Frame Heat Exchangers

A plate heat exchanger is a type of heat exchanger that uses metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids.
