Whitlock U-Tube Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger

API Heat Transfer manufactures several variations of U-Tube heat exchangers. Both the Type 500 and Hub-Design are available in U-Tube configurations. However, to address the very basic of needs for industrial heating and cooling applications, the Model BWS and BW U-Tube heat exchangers offer highly standardized construction at a very attractive price. The BWS is designed for Water-to-Steam, while the BW is built for Water-toWater service. Units are also available as Immersion Tank Heat Exchangers

Basco U-Tube HE Detail


Constructed in accordance with ASME Code, Section VIII, Division 1, these heavy duty "U"-Tube heat exchangers have built-in protection against damage caused by the inherent forces which occur during heating and cooling as the vessel thermally expands and contracts. As the one end of the bundle is free to float, the unit is safe even under exteme thermal cycling. This makes them ideal for use with steam as the heating medium.

Typical applications for the BWS and BW models include:  
  • Water heating with steam
  • Condensate cooling
  • Boiler feedwater preheating
  • Cooling tower trim cooling
  • Glycol cooling
  • Oil cooling
