Shell and Tube

Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

Shell and tube heat exchangers are most commonly used in water-only heat exchange applications, like heating hot tubs, spas, and pools in conjunction with a boiler. These very efficient heat exchangers can also be used in cooling applications for cooling (or even heating) greenhouse irrigation water including plant nutrient solutions, and industrial process chilling/heating with chemicals as well as food products.

There are a number of advantages and disadvantages to using shell and tube heat exchangers, and it is very important to understand how they relate to your specific application. For instance, our units are made from corrosion resistant materials (316L grade stainless steel, or titanium) in order to provide the greatest long term performance and unit longevity, but obviously the more corrosive chemicals/materials you use with your heat exchanger will cause internal corrosion build-up, and may eventually lead to unit failure. So be sure not to exceed recommended levels of pH and plan for more frequent cleaning and maintenance in order to keep your unit operating with optimal efficiency.

Hygge - Side-Arm Heat Exchanger

This is a 48" tube-in-tube side-arm heat exchanger with 3/4" hook up for the domestic water heater side, and 1" hook up for the wood stove/boiler side. This side-arm will work on any size hot water heater, though installation piping may vary depending on water heater dimensions. The inner copper tube is rifled in order to introduce turbulence within the heat exchanger which improves heat exchange performance. The side-arm comes dry-fit/unsoldered to more easily fit your exact installation.

Our titanium heat exchangers are fully constructed with titanium shell and corrugated titanium interior tubes, ensuring adequate turbulence and avoiding inefficient laminar flows. Our titanium shell and tube heat exchangers come in a wide range of cooling and heating capacities, from 1 Ton to 20 Ton cooling and 4 Ton to 375 Ton heating! These units can be used with a boiler for heating as well as glycol chillers or geothermal systems for cooling. These units provide the best combination of affordability, reliability, and efficiency in the industry today.

Stainless Steel Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger

Our line of shell and tube heat exchangers come in a wide range of cooling capacities, from 1 Ton to 25 Ton. These units are sized specifically for our ChillX and Chillking line of water chillers, and provide the best combination of affordability, reliability, and efficiency. Among the most important differentiators of these shell and tube heat exchangers, include: 316L grade stainless steel and all welded construction, helix tubing, and large ports for maximum flow.

Stone Cold Chillers - Titanium Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

Just like our line of stainless steel shell and tube heat exchangers our titanium models also come in a wide range of cooling capacities, from 1 Ton to 25 Ton. These titanium heat exchangers are sized specifically for our ChillX and Chillking line of water chillers, and offer the best available corrosion resistance for optimal performance and greatest longevity. Among the most important differentiators of these shell and tube heat exchangers, include: titanium all-welded construction, helix tubing, and large ports for maximum flow!
