Heat Exchangers

In every chemical, petrochemical or refining system, heat exchangers are used to transfer heat from one fluid to another. The most basic and the most common type of heat exchanger construction is the tube and shell type.

Pacific Engineering Pty Ltd designs and supplies shell and tube type heat exchangers based on local and international standards. We design reactors, columns, strippers, condensers, coolers, electrical heaters, reboilers, distillation columns, falling film evaporators, finned tube air coolers or modify your existing heat exchanger and provide thermal / mechanical designs and detail drawings.

Alterations to existing heat exchangers:

We can alter existing exchangers to suit your requirements:

  • redesign thermally and mechanically to meet new process conditions
  • interchange flowing media between the tube and shell side
  • design a new bundle to conform to an existing shell in-service
  • increase number of passes to control fouling
  • modify tube layout to allow cleaning
  • material change / improvement on either side

Pacific Engineering Pty Ltd can provide detailed design including themal and mechanical calculations, detail drawings, third party design verification, design registration and external fabrication inspection services for an exchanger.
