C Series Heat Exchanger

C Series heat exchangerC Series heat exchangers heat and cool low pressure gas streams. The modular C Series design allows a standard design to easily be customized to give a custom fit. Use our interactive online form to get a fast and accurate quote!

Common Applications
Aftercooling, dehumidifying and heating rotary-lobe and multistage centrifugal blowers used in pneumatic conveying, air separation and printing systems.

Pressure Housing
Heat exchanger cores are removable through both the front and back sides of the housing without disassembly of the gas line. Pressure tests from a full vacuum to 15 PSIG are available.

Heat exchanger housings can be built to contain several cores with separate or shared access panels. Mist eliminators can also be built into a housing to prevent condensed moisture from carrying downstream. The gas connection size and type can easily be changed to match system requirements.

Fin-Tube Core
The fins are rectangular plates with a matrix of die-extruded tube collars. A sheet metal casing provides rigidity to the fin-tube assembly prior to tube expansion. After assembly, the tubes are expanded into the fin collars. This allows for a gap-free connection maximizing heat exchanger performance and structural integrity.

Installation Considerations
The fluid circuit consists of several parallel tube circuits, which are joined at inlet and outlet headers. The circuits are designed to work “down hill” to prevent trapping. To assure complete drainage, optional intermediate drain headers are available. Attached at the 180 deg. return bends, they provide positive water drainage and protection from freeze-up.

To prevent metal work-hardening and failure, it is important to isolate the exchanger from vibration. Pulsating flow produced by rotary lobe blowers must be dampened by a chambered silencer.

Performance
Xchanger engineers use a computer model to analyze heat exchanger performance. A specifically designed program calculates housing material thickness based on the ASME code. As with all Xchanger equipment, the design performance is guaranteed.
