There are a few primary means of differentiation between an Industrial Steam or Steam Distributing Heat Exchanger and a Commercial Steam or Steam Distributing Coils - the environment and conditions, materials of construction and certification.
The environments that Industrial Steam or Steam Distributing Heat Exchangers are placed in are typically harsh and aggressive. Power plants, chemical processing facilities, and waste heat recovery systems are all examples where an Industrial Steam and Steam Distributing will live and operate. Their environment and realized conditions drive more robust material selection. Material such as 300 series stainless steel or with heavy wall or gauge thicknesses.
The US standard for code compliance is the ASME Section VIII, Division 1 Code. SRC will apply either the U or UM stamp based on the volume and pressures of the application. Additionally, for shipment into Canada, Canadian Registration Number (CRN) or Europe, the Pressure Equipment Directive mark (CE - SEP, Level 1 or Level 2) can be applied.
This steam coil air preheater is a carbon steel bare tube 2 row design. An airtight header enclosure ensures zero air leakage and a cover plate is attached to ensure fit up at the job site. The structural angle on this product was installed for structural rigidity.
This heat exchanger features a removable waterbox header configuration. The design enables users to access each tube for cleaning and maintenance (after removal). The heat exchanger core was manufactured from carbon steel tube and fin. Gussets were applied to ensure squareness, and lifting shackles were applied per customer request.
This multi-row, multi-unit air preheater enclosure features spiral wrapped fin tube (carbon steel tube with aluminum fin), along with an enclosed airtight header construction. The housing was designed and built so that the heat exchangers could be removed for maintenance or replacement.
The heat exchangers and housing are Heresite coated for enhanced durability.
A wide range of materials are used to construct fluidized bed dryers and coolers. Common and uncommon materials include:
Super Radiator Coils' welders and brazers are certified under ASME Section IX code, and all welding and brazing programs are directed by Certified Weld Inspectors (CWI's).
In addition to our team, we have in-house pickling and passivation capabilities so that the corrosion-resistant benefits of stainless steel products won't be lost after welding.
