Heat exchangers have one main purpose: to transfer heat between two or more fluids. They are used for both heating and cooling processes, and are commonly utilized in air conditioning, space heating, refrigeration, chemical plants, power stations, sewage treatment, and more. Although the goal is always the same, there are many types of heat exchangers that are composed differently and complete the process in different ways. The variations in design and heat transferring processes means that one type of heat exchanger might be better suited to fit your needs than another.
If you’re in need of a used stainless steel heat exchanger, look no further than Zwirner Equipment Company. We are experts in the industry when it comes to industrial equipment and services. With the wide range of heat exchanger types in stock and knowledgeable equipment experts on hand, we will help you find the right piece of equipment that will best serve your application.
The inventory of used stainless steel heat exchangers at Zwirner Equipment includes:
One of the most common types of heat exchangers, shell and tube heat exchangers consist of a series of tubes enclosed within a cylindrical pressure vessel (called a ‘shell’). One fluid flows through the tubes while another fluid of a different temperature flows through the shell over the tubes, causing a heat transfer between the fluids. Shell and tube heat exchangers have a simple design and are usually easy to service. They are considered an ideal cooling solution in several applications, such as cooling oil and hydraulic fluid in engines.
Also called a double pipe heat exchanger, this is one of the simplest types of heat exchangers. It consists of two or more cylindrical pipes/tubes of different diameters. One fluid runs through the smaller tube while another fluid of a varying temperature flows within the larger tube around the smaller tubes, resulting in a transfer of heat. Many consider double pipe heat exchangers as inexpensive in terms of design and maintenance, but they typically have a low efficiency in larger scales – making them a good choice for smaller industries.
With a more specialized design than a conventional heat exchanger, plate heat exchangers are constructed of several thin, metal plates that have large surface areas and small fluid flow channels for heat transfer. The fluids spread out across the plates, which assists the heat exchange process and increases the speed of temperature change. Plate heat exchangers typically have lower volume and cost and increased efficiencies compared to other types of heat exchangers.
With decades of experience and industry knowledge, Zwirner Equipment is your single-source solution for stainless steel equipment and services. All used heat exchangers undergo our extensive reconditioning process to ensure they function at their full capacity. We also provide nationwide transportation services from our facility in Hartsville, TN so that you can get the quality, cost-efficient equipment you need from anywhere in the country.
