Aluminium for shell-and-tube heat exchangers

Shell-and-tube heat exchangers are mainly used in higher-pressure applications for the heating or cooling of fluids and gases. Consider using aluminium for yours.

Welded aluminium tubes

A shell-and-tube heat exchanger consists of a large number of long, low-diameter tubes arranged in a longitudinal bundle within a larger tube, or shell. Depending on the application, fluid or gas circulates the void between the shell and the tube bundle, acting as the coolant.

Welding aluminium tubes

Welded tubing offers a limited wall-thickness variation, compared with extrusion, and makes it possible to tailor properties on the core alloy as well as on both the inside and outside of the tube by using clad strip material.

High-strength and corrosion-resistant aluminium alloys

The intricate arrangement of the bundled tubes requires strict tolerances to ensure proper fitting and flow. In your next shell-and-tube heat exchanger project, you should consider using our welded aluminium tubes, which are manufactured to extremely low tolerances in high-strength and corrosion-resistant alloys.

The optional cladded tube walls provide you with superb corrosion protection.
