Heat can be exchanged between two or more fluids in different types of Heat Exchangers. One type of heat exchangers is the Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger. Each application has its own heat exchanger: from small to gigantic, from standard to highly specialized, from standard materials to the most exotic material, from simple cooling or heating a liquid to (partly) condensing and boiling of fluids.
Bronswerk Heat Transfer uses the guidelines of the Tubular Exchanger Manufacturers Association (TEMA). Inc. TEMA is the trade association of the leading manufacturers of Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers, who have pioneered the research and development of heat exchangers for over sixty years.
A Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger is seen as the most robust type of heat exchanger: rigid, and often designed for 30 years of operation. They are therefore found in demanding applications, such as refineries, chemical, oil and gas winning. Equipment in these industries normally operate under such demanding safety and availability requirements that extra severe requirements have been formulated for these heat exchangers.
Manufacturing facilities and project management
In Nijkerk, The Netherlands, we have our own manufacturing location, in the same area as our engineering office. For this reason, there is a very direct flow of information from mechanical engineers to the mechanics in the workshop, and vice versa. We also have a broad network of specialized partners worldwide. In order to ensure coordination of the work of different partners and our own colleagues, a team of project managers coordinates the projects with the different parties, and with the customer.
