Advantages of TTAI heat exchangers

Weight and space limitations of TTAI heat exchangers are 10 times less than those of traditional shell and tube heat exchangers and modern gasketed plate heat exchangers 

The use of TTAI heat exchangers allows: 

  • to free up useful room space due to their compactness
  • to install TTAI heat exchangers in small and not easily accessible areas
  • to facilitate transportation and simplify installation of TTAI heat exchangers because of their light weight
  • to provide easy technical maintenance due to the possibility to remove a tube bank from the tube shell
  • to reduce operating costs
  • to approach fluid freezing temperature when the fluid is cooled
  • to extend the period of continuous operation due to the effect of self-cleaning, which is the special feature of our heat exchangers
  • to create compact heat units which do not require spacious rooms for their installation, so that the space can be used for another purposes 

Operation Concept

TTAI heat exchangers functionally refer to shell and tube heat exchangers. However, they have some significant differences in design and technology compared to traditional shell and tube heat exchangers. The advantages of TTAI heat exchangers are the following: 

  • extra thin heat-transfer tubes of small diameter are used in TTAI heat exchangers
  • heat-transfer tubes have a special profile
  • heat-transfer tubes are in a pressure-tight bank
  • irregular layout of the tube sheets is used
  • TTAI heat exchangers’ tube bank is movable
  • there is a pure counterflow of heat-exchange media                               
  • there is an increased medium motion speed in TTAI heat exchangers
  • low hydraulic resistance
  • tube bank can be easily removed from the shell
  • TTAI heat exchangers’ shell is made of extra thin tubes
  • heat-transfer tubes and heat exchangers’ shell are produced from stainless steel or titanium
  • self-cleaning effect during the operation of TTAI heat exchangers
  • media flow scheme can be one-way, two-way or multi-way
  • tube separating plates are of specific design
  • tube sheets can be not only metal, but also composite
  • each TTAI heat exchanger is customized by specially developed computer program to suite each specific application
