General Specifications:
Shell Side: 

  • Sizes from 6" to 44"
  • Pressures: Up to 350 PSIG for units <= 12” diameter
  • Up to 300 PSIG for units > =14” 
  • Temperatures: Up to 375 F

Tube Side: 

  • Tube sizes 3/8" OD to 1" OD
  • Material: Admiralty and copper alloys, carbon steel, stainless steel, monel and others
  • Pressures: Up to 350 PSIG for sizes 6" to 16"; up to 300 PSIG for sizes over 16"
  • Temperatures: Up to 375 F

Applications:
Recommended for:

  • Oil
  • Water
  • Air
  • Nitrogen
  • Dry Carbon Dioxide
  • Other inert gases

Should not be used for:

  • Hydrocarbon gases
  • Hydrogen
  • Oxygen

  • Volatile, toxic, or flammable fluids

Advantages:

  • Tube bundle can be easily removed 
  • Straight tubes can be cleaned
  • Double O-ring seal allows tube bundle to expand and contract
  • Prevents intermixing of shell and tube side fluids
