The Thermo-T™ tubular heat-exchanger is designed to recover heat from energy-consuming processes up to 2000°F. Energy can be recovered and returned as process make-up air, used to preheat combustion air, or used for plant or office heating. Thermo-T™ offers fully adjustable tube-size and tube-spacing as well as both single-pass and multi-pass models.
The Thermo-T™ heat-exchanger is designed for an industrial environment. High quality materials and construction provide superior performance in high-temperature or corrosive environments. The tubes are mechanically expanded into and then fully welded to the tube sheet. This provides a double layer of protection to ensure against cross-contamination.
The inner casing is constructed of the same material as the heat-transfer matrix. It is welded to the matrix at certain peripheral locations to assure an air-tight seal. At high temperatures, Thermo-T's integral expansion joints allow the tube/sheet assembly to expand without causing excessive stress. The internal casing is secured to the cold outer casing by means of integral thermal expansion joints. These joints allow the inner matrix/casing assembly to move about freely.
Finally, a layer of high-temperature insulation keeps the outer casing cool to prevent expansion as a result of process temperature changes.
