They can be found in oil platforms in the Bering Sea, Russian food processing plants, and many UK nuclear power plants, so you can be sure of their outstanding quality and reliability so, whether you’re interested in industrial space heating, blast coolers, condensers, economisers or heat recovery, get in touch with our technical team for more information on our heat exchanger design service and for straightforward advice you can trust.

What is a heat exchanger?

heat exchanger is a device which transfers (or exchanges) heat from one fluid to another.

When considering what you want from your heat exchanger, it is important to think about the reasons why you want a heat exchanger, as well as how and where you will use it.


When do you need a Heat Exchanger?

  • You want to take a cold fluid and make it hot
  • You want to take a hot fluid and cool it down
  • You want to cool a fluid while heating another fluid
  • You want to use a hot fluid to heat another fluid

To ensure you get the very best solution, and to enable us to give you a good idea of cost, think about the following:


What do I need to consider?

Fluid type

What are the 'fluids' you are heating (air and steam, air and water, other)?


What are the inlet temperatures of the fluids?
What are the outlet temperatures of the fluids?

Fluid quantity

What is the volume flow rate?
What is the mass flow rate?

Expected envelope

Where will the unit be fitted?
How big is the space?
Are there any structural considerations?
What will it connect to?

These considerations inform the application of our expertise (in thermofluids, heat transfer, design, manufacture and installation) to ensure you get the best and most value-for-money heat exchanger for your needs. 

Specify the right heat exchanger
