Sep 03, 2021 · Shell and tube heat exchangers can be single-phase, or two-phase. A single-phase exchanger keeps the fluids phase constant throughout the process (e.g. liquid water enters, liquid water leaves) while a two-phase exchanger will cause a phase change during heat transfer process (e.g. steam enters and liquid water leaves).
Shell and Tube heat exchangers are one of the most popular styles of heat exchanger devices used due to the various designs available. You will see these heat exchangers used in common application such as cooling hydraulic oil on a power unit, water glycol on engines, air or gases downstream of a compressor, condensing steam, vaporizing gases
