EBNER manufactures tube bundle heat exchangers with metallic tubes in welded and rolled versions for use in its own plants and on customer’s request. Typical materials, among others, are:
- Carbon steel
- Titanium, titanium plated
- Aluminium bronze
- Various stainless steels
- Nickel base materials
In addition to heat exchangers with metallic tubes, heat exchangers with carbon tubes (graphite) are also manufactured.
At EBNER, these are individually inserted into rubber-lined tube sheets with sealing rings so that each tube can expand freely. This eliminates the need for sealing a tube sheet with a stuffing box, which would simultaneously absorb the expansion of the entire tube bundle and could cause pipe breakage in the event of temperature fluctuations. Thus an exchange of individual pipes is possible, in contrast to the standard construction, where it is necessary to exchange the entire graphite component in case of failure of individual pipes.
