The Shell and Tube is the most common type of heat exchanger used in the process, petroleum, chemical and HVAC industries, it contains a number of parallel tubes inside a shell. Shell Tube heat exchangers are used when a process requires large amounts of fluid to be heated or cooled. Due to their design, shell tube heat exchangers offer a large heat transfer area and provide high heat transfer efficiency.


As its name implies, this type of heat exchanger consists of a shell (a large pressure vessel) with a bundle of tubes inside it. One fluid runs through the tubes, and another fluid flows over the tubes (through the shell) to transfer heat between the two fluids. The set of tubes is called a tube bundle.


There are many different types or designs of shell and tube heat exchangers to meet various process requirements. Shell and Tube heat exchangers can provide steady heat transfer by utilizing multiple passes of one or both fluids. INDCON provides customized Shell & Tube Exchangers as per the requirement of our clients.
