AIR-COOLED HEAT EXCHANGERS
INTRODUCTION TO AIR-COOLED HEAT EXCHANGERS Atmospheric air has been used for many years to cool and condense fluids in areas of water scarcity. During the 1960s the use of air-cooled heat exchangers grew rapidly in the United States and elsewhere. In Europe, where seasonal variations in ambient temperatures are relatively small, air-cooled exchangers are used for the greater part of process cooling. In some new plants all cooling is done with air. Increased use of air-cooled heat exchangers has resulted from lack of available water, significant increases in water costs, and concern for water pollution. Air-cooled heat exchangers include a tube bundle, w…
