TC 01.5 – Double Jacketed Vessel and Coil Heat Exchanger

This type of exchanger is generally used in the chemical and process industry, when a very well adjusted temperature is needed.


The exchanger can work with the vessel, or with the coil, and also there is the possibility to work with a continuous flow in the vessel, or to heat a given quantity of water.

This exchanger also has a thermocouple to keep a continuous reading of the fluid temperature inside the vessel, as well as a variable-speed mixer, to study how it affects heat exchange.
