Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchanger

Floating-head-type shell-and-tube heat exchanger is designed to extract heat from a slurry consisting of liquid sulfur and hydrogen sulfide at a temperature of 849oF (454oC). This slurry must be cooled before it can be processed further. The unit weighs 2 tons each, and once paired for in-series operation, it will be relatively compact. Each contains 1.5 tons of S31000, containing 20.5 percent nickel. The tubes, tubesheets and channels, nozzle connection pipe and flanges and all other tube-side materials coming directly in contact with the hot slurry are S31000-compliant.

Plate-and-Frame Heat Exchanger

Model GPX includes a one-piece molded gasket. It is designed with two rings to confine each fluid to the appropriate port region of the plate, and a field region of the gasket confines the fluid to the heat transfer area of the plate. A vented region is located between the port and field regions. This design creates a double gasket with a leak path to atmosphere through the vented region, preventing any cross-contamination of the fluids due to gasket failure.
