In the previous post, Astute, our heat exchanger , we showed our star product. Today we are going to talk about the triple tube or annular space heat exchanger. This exchanger is used in applications with viscous fluids and consists of three concentric tubes.
The triple tube or annular space heat exchanger is used for heat transfer applications with viscous fluids. It consists of three concentric tubes. Product flows through the annulus between tubes 2 and 3. The media fluid flows in the other two channels. The product is therefore heated or cooled from both sides. Corrugated tubes are used to increase heat transfer rates. The result is a highly efficient heat exchanger for difficult heat transfer applications.
Medium to high viscosity fluids.
Fluids containing fibres or small particulates.
Food applications, industrial applications.
