A hairpin design is often more thermally efficient than a traditional shell and tube, which results in a lower up-front cost and lower overall weight. Our experienced designers and engineers can meet any custom cooling requirement.


  • Ideal for applications that require high thermal performance and a compact footprint
  • True countercurrent flow allows for a close temperature approach between the shell side and tube side fluids, as well as a temperature cross
  • Removable bundles are available in two closure options, separated or common, for required cleaning on both the shell and tube sides
  • Non-removable bundles are the cost-effective option when a fixed tubesheet design is feasible
  • Wide temperature differentials are handled without an expansion joint
  • Ease of maintenance with a long radius U-bend
  • All connections are at one end of the heat exchanger
  • Sizes up to 60 in. (150 cm) in diameter and 480 in. (1200 cm) in length
  • Materials include carbon steel, 300 series stainless steel, Duplex stainless steel, copper alloy, chrome-moly alloys, Hastelloy, Inconel, Monel, 254 SMO, alloy clad/weld overlay
  • Designed and fabricated per ASME, TEMA, CRN, PED, CML
