What are the different types of coolers?

A Guide to Heat Exchangers (part 1)

The coolers sector can be complex and confusing, that’s why we have developed a three-part guide about the principles and functionality of heat exchangers.

In this first part our R&D Manager, Marco Noacco, introduces us to some fundamental concepts.

The world of heat exchange is split between the heaters and the coolers.
Oesse, for over 20 years, is focused on the design of cooling systems.

To identify the different solutions, we consider:

  • cooling medium
  • compactness
  • efficiency

The most commonly used products in industrial applications are: shell & tube, plate, finned tube and plates and bars heat exchangers, each used in specific sectors.

Plates&bars heat exchangers ensure greater compactness and efficiency.

Choosing this technology is also ideal to implement sustainable production processes.
The plates&bars heat exchangers have a low environmental impact:
– they do not consume water, as the cooling fluid is air.
– the end-of-life disposal is simplified, as the product is made of one single material, aluminium.

The choice of a heat exchanger is based also on:

  • materials and fluids compatibility
  • working conditions
  • special applications

In the next clip we will talk about Oesse’s cross-flow, aluminium heat exchangers with plates and bars technology and their operating principles.
