Various circuit elements are used in industrial and different fields to enable system operation. All types of equipment required for heat systems can be found under the product category. Under the heading of heat exchangers, you can review product varieties, request quotes, and purchase the product type that suits your needs. Heat exchangers have different types and different features depending on their application areas.
They are known as heat transfer products. They enable heat transfer between two fluids or gases in heat source systems without mixing or physical contact. The heat transfer between the hot and cold fluids ensures the proper use of the system. The correct selection and use of heat exchangers, as circuit elements, are important for efficiency.
What is a Heat Exchanger?
A heat exchanger is the general name given to circuit elements that allow the exchange of heat values without the contact or mixing of two liquids in a system that have different temperatures.
According to the working principles, it collects the heat of the liquid with high temperature on the transfer surface, such as plates or tubes, and transfers it to the other liquid on the other surface, allowing heat exchange to occur. With this working principle, the liquid with high heat will lose heat and its temperature will decrease. The liquid with low heat will heat up through heat transfer, and its heat value will increase.
In this way, heat balance is achieved, ensuring the efficient operation of the system. The most important feature of heat exchangers is that they enable easy heat transfer between two substances in liquid or gas form without mixing with each other. The materials used in heat transfer systems separate the fluids from each other and facilitate the transfer of heat to the other.
What Are the Types of Heat Exchangers?
Different types of heat exchangers with different features and designs can be used in most industrial sectors. When making a product selection, it is important to choose according to their applications and types.
They are divided into three different types according to their application areas:
Plate heat exchangers are further divided into four different types:
There are also special application heat exchangers that are divided into various types according to their applications and designs:
Preferences can vary depending on the application areas. It is known that plate heat exchangers are more preferred than tubular heat exchangers. Various calculations need to be made when selecting heat transfer products. There can be differences of 3-5% in heat transfer values between different brands and models. When making selections according to the application area, these calculations should be made, and product specifications should be examined before purchasing.
For detailed information about the product, you can get support through the contact options. When the pressure values that the two fluid liquids to be heat exchanged will create in the system are calculated, the correct product selection can be made. It is necessary for the plate or tube body thickness calculations to be made to withstand pressure and to achieve the best possible heat exchange.
Areas of Use for Heat Exchangers
The areas of use for heat exchangers vary greatly depending on their types. These products, which have a wide range of applications, enable heating or cooling by performing heat transfers between fluids with different densities.
Here are the most common areas where heat exchangers, defined as heat exchangers, are used:
The wide range of applications allows for the production of heat exchangers in different types and models. The radiator systems used in cars can be cited as the most commonly used heat exchangers. Plate or tube options can be used depending on the application areas. Tube-type heat exchangers are further categorized as shell-and-tube and double-tube. The advantages of tube-type heat exchangers are as follows:
Among the areas where tube-type heat exchangers are most commonly used are condensers, petrochemical and refinery plants, thermal power plants, fabric dyeing machines, and compressor air coolers, among others.
