Contrary to what we may think, heat exchangers do not exchange heat but they transfer the heat from a hot fluid to a cold fluid. The tubes containing the hot and cold fluids are not in contact with each other.
Heat exchangers are used in a large numbers of industrial domains, especially those which use fluids at high temperatures.
There are several types of heat exchangers. They include the following types:
- 'U' tube heat exchangers
- Horizontal shell and tube heat exchangers
- Coil heat exchangers
- Plate heat exchangers
Heat exchangers contain large numbers of tubes. These tubes are generally expanded by rolling (a cold process).
Our equipment is designed to carry out various types of jobs on heat exchangers:
- Cutting tubes to length
- Removing weld seams
- Beveling tubes
When the tubes are expanded by rolling, the machine’s clamping jaws are adapted for clamping on two different diameters.
Our bevelers can also machine tubes with vanes (repairing or optimizing vane heights)
