The temperature approach is the difference between the inlet temperature of the cold HEAT EXCHANGE EQUIPMENT 43 fluid and the outlet temperature of the hot fluid. Certain exchanger designs operate better at different temperature approaches. Plate-and- frame exchangers, for example, work well at a very close temperature approach, on the order of AF. For shell-and-tube exchangers, however, the lowest possible temperature approach is IO-ME. As for cleanliness of the process fluids, shell-and- tube exchangers have tube diameters that can accommodate a certain amount of particulate matter without clogging or fouling.

The pull-through design accommodates a smaller number of tubes in a given shell diameter, so it offers less surface area than other removable-bundle exchangers. Common TEMA designations are AET and BET, and typical applications include exchangers handling chemical fluids, hydrocarbon fluid condensers, air or gas compressors, and inter-and after-coolers. Removable-Bundle, U-Tube Exchangers In the U-tube exchanger, a bundle of nested tubes, each bent in a series of concentrically tighter U-shapes, is attached to a single tubesheet, as illustrated in Figure 7.

Has established heat exchanger standards and nomenclature. Every shell-and-tube device has a three-letter designation; the letters refer to the specific type of stationary head at the front end, the shell type, and the rear-end head type, respectively (a fully illustrated description can be found in the TEMA standards). Common TEMA designations are listed with specific configurations described below. Shell and Tube Configurations The shell and tube heat exchanger consists of a shell, usually a circular cylinder, with a large number of tubes, attached to an end plate and arranged in a fashion where two fluids can exchange heat without the fluids, coming in contact with one another.
