There are differences in product performance and application scope of different forms of cooler products. During the purchase, a variety of factors should be comprehensively considered, such as material, temperature, pressure, cut-off, installation, maintenance and economy.
Then, let’s take tubular and plate coolers as examples. Let’s take a look at the occasions where these two types of cooler products are applicable.
Generally, the principles to be followed in the selection of cooler are:
When operating at high temperature and high pressure, and the processing capacity is large, the strength and structural reliability are very important, and the tubular cooler should be selected.
If the operating temperature and pressure are not high and the processing capacity is not large, plate or plate fin cooler can be selected. This type of cooler has the advantages of high heat transfer efficiency and compact structure.
In addition, for the cut-off valve with strong corrosion, cooler products made of corrosion-resistant materials should be selected, such as titanium cooler, PTFE cooler, etc.
