*Meet The Turbulator     *Product Literature     *Home


Turbulators are devices that can be described as static mixers. Typically located inside the tubes of heat exchange equipment, turbulators help to increase the tube-side heat transfer efficiency of these units. Custom-made to fit the inside diameter of the tube, turbulators are designed to create and maintain turbulent flow.

Turbulators are available in a variety of configurations (download PDF) to fit most tube sizes and are used in many types of heat exchange equipment.

  • Won't harm boilers or heat exchangers
  • Eliminates laminar flow and promotes turbulence
  • Increases heat transfer efficiency
  • Provides a quick return on investment

Turbulator diagram A turbulator is a metal baffle formed to fit the inside diameter of a tube and designed to improve performance in boilers and heat exchange equipment of various types. A turbulator is a device which is inserted on the tube side of firetube boilers, shell & tube heat exchangers and other types of heat transfer equipment. It breaks up and redirects the straight line or laminar core of liquids or gas (whichever the case may be) and helps to increase heat transfer efficiency. In fact, a turbulator will allow you to do the same job using less energy.

Turbulators are available in a variety of configurations (download PDF) to fit most tube sizes and are used in many types of heat exchange equipment.

Twisted Tape Turbulators: As the name implies, the twisted tape turbulator is formed in a helical fashion and is typically used in shell & tube heat exchanger applications where there are fluids inside the tubes.

Angular Turbulators: The angular (or "brock") turbulator is primarily used in applications where there are gases inside the tubes or flue passes of boilers, air-to-air heat exchangers, and other types of heat exchange equipment.

Coiled Rod Turbulators: Coiled rod turbulators offer another way to increase heat transfer
efficiency in tubular heat exchange equipment. Like the angular
turbulator, the coiled rod turbulator is normally used in gaseous

Process Turbulators: Typical industries include oil, gas, and petro chemical processing. Turbulators for process heaters improve the efficiency of your Line Heaters, Dehydration Units, Water Bath Heaters, Reboilers, Tube Type Heat Exchangers,and Immersion/Vat Heaters... and more.
