Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger Components

Shell and tube heat exchanger type is the heat exchanger type that is most widely used in oil and gas industries. This device consists of a shell in which there are some tube bundles which has relatively small diameter. One type of fluid flows inside tubes while the other fluid flow on outside tubes but still in the shell. In addition, this type has a lot of parts or components. Shell and tube heat exchanger components are shown in Figure 1.
