A shell & tube heat exchanger consists of tubes mounted inside a cylindrical shell to exchange heat of two fluids. The fluids have tendancy to flow in a parallel or cross-flow direction and can be single based on the arrangement. These exchangers have a simple design, low maintenance cost and robust characteristics. Shell & tube heat exchangers are very popular and commonly found in industrial use. This is mainly due to their versatility. A shell and tube exchanger consists of a shell, tube bundle and two heads or caps at both ends of the shell. The shell & tube exchangers are generally of 3 types: Fixed tube sheet exchangers, U-tube exchangers and Floating header exchangers. The selection for the type of heat exchanger is made based on the following factors: selection of fluids to the shell-side and tube side, selection of shell type, selection of front end and rear end header types and selection of exchanger geometry.
