Heat Exchangers

Heat Exchangers

Can any please tell me whether tie rods can be welded on heat exchangers tube sheet or hole to be drilled for tie rods.Please mention the relevant standard for reference.

RE: Heat Exchangers

Babu daniel, tie rods are normally threaded into tapped holes in the tubesheet, although I don't think welding is prohibited. A fillet weld would tend to interfere with spacer tubing at the tubesheet though.

Relevant standards would be either Standards Of The Tubular Exchanger Manufacturers Association (TEMA) or Heat Exchange Institute Standards For Shell And Tube Heat Exchangers (HEI).



The problem with sloppy work is that the supply FAR EXCEEDS the demand
