The Role of Heat Exchanger Head

The main functions of the heat exchanger head include sealing, reducing pipeline resistance, ensuring the safety of equipment and pipelines, and improving the efficiency and stability of the heat exchanger. Here's how:

Plays a good sealing role

The heat exchanger head is used to seal the fluid in the heat exchanger, prevent its leakage, and ensure the stable flow of the internal fluid. At the same time, it can protect the heat exchanger, and the head partition can isolate the corrosive medium between the tube bundle and the shell, avoid the erosion of the medium on the shell, and extend the service life of the heat exchanger

Can effectively reduce pipeline resistance

The design of the head can reduce the flow resistance of the fluid in the pipeline, thereby improving the flow rate and heat transfer efficiency.

Can ensure the safety of equipment and pipelines

In high pressure and high temperature working environment, the head helps to protect equipment and pipelines from damage.

Effectively improve the efficiency and stability of the heat exchanger

Reasonable head design can reduce the system leakage rate and pipeline resistance, maintain the stability of the fluid, and reduce the damage to the system.


Plays the role of separation

Separating the heat medium flow path between the bundle and the shell: the head partition is located at the head of the bundle at both ends, which helps to separate the heat medium flow path, prevent the fluid from mixing directly, and improve the heat transfer effect and stability.

Connect the tube bundle and the shell

With the connection of the tube and the shell, the medium can circulate inside the tube shell, and also facilitate the disassembly and maintenance of the tube bundle, improve the maintenance efficiency.
