The construction of SPINTUBE bundles increases throughput by up to 40% while still allowing inspection and cleaning using the same methods and techniques developed for conventional shell and tube heat exchangers. SPINTUBE also completely eliminates flow induced vibrations.
A SPINTUBE replacement bundle creates additional turbulence and with tubes in direct contact with one another the number of tubes per shell diameter is increased. As a consequence retro-fitting SPINTUBE increases thermal performance in the same shell by up to 40%.
No limitations on tube material and thickness. Tube diameters from 3/8" to 11/4". Tube spin is engineered according to service. Can be cleaned using conventional water-jet methods.
Crude pre-heat trains, cooler trains (amine service), condensers, reboilers and vaporizers, feed-effluent exchangers including horizontal, high pressure units e.g. hydrocrackers, and vertical exchangers e.g. Texas Towers, compressor gas coolers.
Thermal performance improvements up to 40%, improved hydraulic performance (reduced shell-side pressure drop), custom design, minimized project scope, improved efficiency and throughput, vibration problems eliminated, easy cleaning.
