Shell and tube type heat exchangers are common throughout the world and are one of the two most common types of heat exchanger (the other common type being a Plate type heat exchanger).
This type of heat exchanger is favoured due to its simple design, robust characteristics and relatively low purchase and maintenance costs. The shell type heat exchanger has a very high heat transfer rate although it requires more space than a plate type heat exchanger of similar capacity.
This 3D model shows all major components associated with a typical shell and tube type heat exchanger, these include:
