A double pipe heat exchanger is made up of a narrow tube that is mounted inside another larger tube. Fluids flow through these different pipes to create a heating effect. This type of heat exchanger is commonly used in various industrial settings, such as:
- Power Stations
- Chemical Plants
- Petrochemical Plants
- Petroleum Refineries
- Natural Gas Processing
- Sewage Treatment Facilities
What to Know About Double Pipe Heat Exchangers
This type of heat exchanger is best suited for industrial chemical plants. It’s also known as a jacked pipe, concentric pipe, hairpin, or a jacketed U-tube heat exchanger. This function gives it a variety of uses in an industrial chemical plant, making it a valuable asset to your facility.
Simplicity & Functionality for Small Industries
In many industries, double pipe heat exchangers are the most simple and affordable type of heat exchanger. They’re economical to maintain and are user-friendly in their no-frills design. For these reasons and more, they have been a popular choice for small industries across the nation. However, business owners should be aware that though they are cost-effective, they’re not as efficient as shell, tube, or plate heat exchangers. Therefore, if you’re operating a large industry, we might recommend other types of heat exchangers over a double pipe model.
