Above is a before and after picture of an old, tired heat exchanger and a new drop in replacement shell & tube exchanger that Thermal Products Inc designed and supplied as a drop in replacement heat exchanger to replace a modified Taco “E” BEU series heat exchanger. After meeting with the customer, a local state government, Thermal Products was able to offer one of our “Drop In Replacement” Heat Exchangers so piping changes would NOT be necessary. All critical center line dimensions were held.
Thermal Products offered a TPI-BEU-26-84-2, which is a 26” diameter shell, 84” tube length U-tube bundle, 2 pass tube side arrangement for steam to water application. We offered an all carbon steel constructed shell and head with ¾”, .049 wall copper tubes. The heat exchanger was built to ASME Code and stamped for 150 PSIG @ 375F. Higher temperature and pressure available upon request.
Although we supplied standard materials of carbon steel and copper tubing, Thermal Products, can readily supply Stainless steel shells and heads and stainless steel tubing, Cupro-Nickel tubing, admiralty tubing, Hastelloy, Titanium, AL-6XN among more.
If your shell and head or bonnet are in good condition, we can simply offer a replacement tube bundle instead. Replacing your tube bundle only with one of Thermal Products quality Drop In Replacement Tube bundles would make your project far less difficult and time consuming. In most cases, a Thermal Products replacement tube bundle comes with a .049 tube wall thickness, when most OEM tube bundles are supplied with .035 wall tubing, making your Thermal Products tube bundle more forgiving to tube side erosion from particulate in your water. Simply call your local Thermal Products office with your heat exchanger model number or picture of your heat exchanger nameplate and we’ll provide a quote to you, in most cases, the same day. All Thermal Products tube bundles come with gaskets.
All of our “Drop In Replacement” Heat Exchangers and Tube Bundles can fit identically to any of the heat exchangers made by Taco, Armstrong, Bell & Gossett, Thrush, ITT, Basco, Adamson, American Standard, Yula, Patterson-Kelly and many more, saving your company money and man hours. Contact us today!
