We offer several basic Shell & Tube configurations in which these can be offered in various custom designs upon request. We offer interchangeable units to such companies as Thermal Transfer, Young Radiator, ITT, Basco, Bell & Gosset, along with others in the industries.

Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers:

Replacement Heat Exchangers to many of the major brands in todayÕs marketplace such as ITT, Basco, Thermal Transfer, Young Radiator, Bell & Gosset, along with others. These units are offered as direct replacements to existing units in the field. In most cases, all that would be necessary to price a unit, would be the existing model number. We also offer computer aided design to size for your particular application.

Brazed Plate Heat Exchangers:

Stainless Steel corrugated plates that are brazed together using copper at high temperatures. The result is a compact, rugged, leak tight, high efficiency heat exchanger. Channels are formed between the plates in which ports are arranged for counter-current flow. A seal is formed throughout the periphery of the unit by the brazed copper.

Plate & Frame Heat Exchanger:

Stainless Steel corrugated plates that are pressed together in an Industrial Fabricated Frame. Compact design ease of maintenance, efficient heat transfer performance. The plate & frame using stainless steel plate are compact, rugged, leak tight, and highly efficient. Channels are formed between the plates in which ports are arranged for counter-current flow. A seal is formed throughout the periphery with the use of gasketing. Units can be taken apart for cleaning and restoring unit efficiencies.

Air-Cooled Heat Exchangers:

Copper tube aluminum fin along with all aluminum plate & Bar core, offered in various designs and configurations depending on requirements. Complete units two include selected core, motor, fan, and shroud. Air Cooled units are offered for various applications such as Oil Cooling, as Cooling, & Water Cooling. Computer aided design is also offered with these units.

Replacement Tube Bundles:

Replacement shell & tube U-tube bundles. Various materials such as Cu. , Steel, Cu Ni, Stainless. Titanium, Hastelloy, as well as others. Replacements to Taco, ITT, Basco & others.


Copper Tube Aluminum Fin and all aluminum cores built to design specification, or can be sized with dimensional information. Chilled & Hot Water, Steam, & Refrigerant cores, available in many various configurations depending on application requirements.

Shell & Coil Heat Exchangers:

Counterflow Heat Exchanger made all of 316L Stainless Steel. Helically Corrugated tubes coiled in a spiral tube bundle supply high heat transfer efficiency. Compact Design, Light weight, High Efficiency make the shell & Coil Heat Exchanger an excellent choice for many applications such as water to water, gas dryers, steam heaters, oil coolers, along with many other applications.

U-Tube Tube Heat Exchangers (ASME Code):

PW & PS design heat exchangers for liquid to liquid and liquid to steam. U-Tube Construction available in either 2 or 4 pass on the tube side.
