The marine heat exchanger is a highly efficient and compact heat exchanger. In the 1880s, it was first developed as a continuous low temperature sterilizer and used in the food industry in the 1920s.
The manufacture and application of marine heat exchangers have unique characteristics. Therefore, marine heat exchangers have been widely used in petroleum, chemical, light industry, electric power, metallurgy, machinery, energy and other industrial fields, and have become a very competitive variety in the heat exchanger family.
In refrigeration technology, marine heat exchangers are indispensable refrigeration equipment, condensers, evaporators, regenerators, intercoolers, heat exchangers and other equipment, not only in weight, but the entire refrigeration unit of more than 50 volume and metal consumption account, but also have a significant impact on refrigeration performance. Therefore, strengthening the heat transfer of the heat exchanger, reducing the weight and volume, and reducing the metal consumption have become the development direction of refrigeration technology. At present, a new type of marine heat exchanger has been used in refrigeration technology, showing strong development potential.
