Basco Type OP incorporates a double O-ring sealed floating tube sheet that provides leak detection and eliminates the possibility of over tightening bolts, avoiding damage to the O-rings. Dome-type shell nozzles are available for higher flow rates at lower pressure drops. It provides highly efficient heat transfer with either bare or low fin tubes due to tight tolerances with baffles that minimizes fluid bypass. The heat exchanger’s construction permits inspection and maintenance of the tube side of the bundle without draining the shell side or disturbing the piping.
