Spiral Heat Exchangers

Spiral heat exchangers provide high efficiency in a small footprint for high pressure and severe service applications. The heat exchanger consists of a dual manifold plate wound or tubular assembly inserted into a shell, where two paths are created for full counterflow heat transfer.
