Kettle Type Heat Exchangers are horizontal placed evaporators, which can be used for various applications as well as for various sizes.
By using U-bend pipes, free expansion of the pipes can be created and the internal separation area is realized by a larger size of the shell diameter. The larger shell diameter also allows for internal fluid circulation, increasing the heat transfer coefficient.
The heating medium on the tube side can be steam as well as, for example, thermal oil. The variation in the load is controlled by the flow on the tube side or the steam pressure.
There may be a retaining wall or overflow weir separating the tube bundle from the reboiler section where the remaining liquid is withdrawn while the tube bundle remains covered with liquid. Kettle Type Reboilers are reliable and easy to maintain.
