Water Cooled Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger

The shell and tube heat exchanger is split into two main systems,referred to as the shell side and tube side.Each system has one associated flowing medium.In our example,we will assume the shell side contains hot mineral oil that must be cooled,whilst the tube side contains cooling water.Oct 16,2013·Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers Using Cooling Water 1.GBH Enterprises,Ltd.Process Engineering Guide GBHE-PEG-HEA-511 Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers Using Cooling Water Information contained in this publication or as otherwise supplied to Users is believed to be accurate and correct at time of going to press,and is given in good faith,but it is for the User to satisfy itself of the Shell and Tube heat exchangers are one of the most popular styles of heat exchanger devices used due to the various designs available.You will see these heat exchangers used in common application such as cooling hydraulic oil on a power unit,water glycol on engines,air or gases downstream of a compressor,condensing steam,vaporizing gases Water Cooled Exchangers.Water-cooled heat exchangers have two independent circuits,one for the process and one for the service media.They work by removing unwanted heat from a process and transfer it to the service media typically a water or water/glycol stream.Increasing the total flow of fresh cooling water to a heat exchanger is not always possible or desirable (see 11.2) but even with a fixed quantity the designer has several options 11.1.1 Tube side water flow Options include (a) Increase the length and reduce the number of tubes.This may not be possible as it may raise the shell side pressure
