CORRESIC® Silicon carbide shell and tube heat exchangers are adapted to the cooling, condensation, heating, evaporation and absorption of highly corrosive chemicals.

Conception

Silicon carbide shell and tube heat exchangers consist in a bundle of silicon carbide tubes inside a shell. One fluid runs through the tubes and another fluid flows over the tubes (through the shell). The heat is transferred by conduction through the silicon carbide tube wall, without direct contact between the fluids
