TWISTED TAPE TURBULATORS IMPROVE HEAT TRANSFER EFFICIENCY
The twisted tape turbulator is most often (but not exclusively) used in shell & tube heat exchangers having fluid inside of the tubes. It is available for tube sizes up to 4” diameter and can be created using a variety of materials. Twisted tape turbulators are custom-made to fit your specifications.
In the past, twisted tape turbulators have also been used in firetube boiler applications. We have the capability to manufacture replacements that meet a large range of specifications.
As the name implies, the Twisted Tape Turbulator is formed in a helical fashion and is typically used in shell & tube heat exchanger applications or watertube boilers where there are fluids inside the tubes. Although Brock turbulators are now recognized and recommended as the best turbulator design option for firetube boilers, twisted tape turbulators were sometimes provided as original equipment with some older firetube boilers.
How it Works: Turbulators are used to increase heat
transfer efficiency in many types of equipment. Turbulators break-up
the laminar flow of fluids/gasses inside the tubes and promote greater
contact w/ tube wall enhancing tube-side heat transfer efficiency. Turbulators
installed in the tubes cause a more even distribution and improvement
in heat transfer coefficients. Turbulators can also help to extend equipment
life by eliminating hot and cool spots that cause thermal stress.
