  • Floating end allows for thermal expansion between the shell side and tube side
  • Eliminates the need for a costly expansion joint
  • 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, repairing or replacing.
