A brief introduction to the heat exchanger
The heat exchanger can be a unit of equipment, such as heaters, coolers, and condensers; it can also be a component of a process equipment, such as the heat exchanger in an ammonia synthesis tower. The heat exchanger is an important unit equipment in chemical production. According to statistics, the tonnage of the heat exchanger accounts for about 20% of the entire process equipment and some even as high as 30%. Its importance can be imagined.
Remarkable achievements have been made in domestic research on improving heat exchanger performance, increasing heat transfer efficiency, reducing heat transfer area, reducing pressure drop, and improving device thermal strength in energy conservation and efficiency gains. The large-scale use of heat exchangers effectively improves the utilization rate of energy, reduces the cost of the enterprise, and improves the efficiency.
