Tantalum Shell & Tube Heat ExchangersSource: Titan Metal Fabricators
Steel picklers have traditionally used carbon block heat exchangers to heat their shallow tank high turbulence pickle baths. The multigasketed designs and fragile nature of graphite heat exchangers still require continuous maintenance and repair which results in expensive downtime and spare parts. This has forced the industry to look for alternatives. The use of metal shell and tube heat exchangers virtually eliminates all of the problems associated with carbon block heat exchangers.
