HAIRPIN/DOUBLE-PIPE HEAT EXCHANGERS
PRINCIPLES OF CONSTRUCTION Hairpin heat exchangers (often also referred to as “double pipes”) are characterized by a construction form that imparts a U-shaped appearance to the heat exchanger. In its classical sense, the term double pipe refers to a heat exchanger consisting of a pipe within a pipe, usually of a straight-leg construction with no bends. However, due to the need for removable bundle construction and the ability to handle differential thermal expansion while avoiding the use of expansion joints (often the weak point of the exchanger), the current U-shaped configuration has become the standard in the industry (
