Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers

Fully welded 316L stainless steel and titanium shell and tube heat exchangers

Brazetek carries an extensive selection of shell and tube heat exchangers - ST series are all-316L Stainless Steel models and STX series are all-Titanium models. These water to water heat exchangers are suitable for processing a wide range of fluids, including water (ST for chlorinated pool water, STX for salt water and marine), dairy, glycols, hydraulic oil, chemicals and many others. Although most commonly used as swimming pool heat exchangers, Brazetek shell and tube heat exchangers can be utilized in projects such as solar and radiant floor heating, snow melting, oil cooling, heat recovery and others. Helically corrugated tube bundle inside the heat exchanger optimizes heat transfer between fluids and is more efficient comparing to non-corrugated tubes.

Models available:
BTU ratings from 55 to 1,200 KBTU and connection sizes from 3/4" up to 2" FNPT.

Shell and Tube HX Features:

  • 316L stainless steel (ST) or Titanium (STX) for superior corrosion resistance
  • Fully welded construction for durability
  • Large ports for high flow rates and minimal pressure drop
  • Helically corrugated tubes improve heat transfer
  • Hot tubs/swimming pool heating
  • Radiant heating, hydronic heating and snow melting
  • Domestic solar heating
  • Motor and hydraulic oil cooling
  • Wastewater heat recovery
  • Other liquid to liquid and water to water heat exchange applications
