Custom Engineered, Shell & Tube, Heating Exchangers

TEMA Type BEP or AEP

Construction:

  • Available in TEMA B, C, or R construction
  • Removable bundle.
  • Straight tube
  • Skirt type packed floating tubesheet

Applications:

Recommended for:

  • Hydrogen
  • Oxygen
  • Air
  • Nitrogen
  • Hydrocarbon gases
  • Gases with low molecular weights

Advantages:

  • Floating end allows for differential thermal expansion between the shell side and tube side, eliminating the need for a costly expansion joint
  • Well-suited to higher pressure, gas in the tube units, and low molecular weight gas units
  • Intermixing of shell and tube fluids is unlikely
  • Provides maximum heat transfer surface and high thermal efficiency.
  • Multi-pass tube side designs are available
  • Straight tubes can be easily cleaned
  • Tube bundle can be easily removed for cleaning shell side, repairing or replacing.

Limitations:

  • >Maximum shell side design pressures are generally limited to 150 PSIG
  • Gases, except for low pressure air and nitrogen, should be kept on the tube side

General Specifications:

Shell Side:
Sizes from 6" to 44" Diameter
Pressures: 150 PSIG standard
Temperatures: 250 degrees F standard, up to 375 degrees F available

Tube Side:
Tube sizes 5/8" OD to 1" OD
Pressures: Up to 3000 PSIG
Temperatures: 300 degrees F, up to 600 degrees F available
