Shell and tube heat exchangers have long played a role in petrochemical applications. Gasketed and fully welded plate heat exchangers have become increasingly important within the industry as well.

API Heat Transfer offers both shell and tube and plate technologies to our customers in the petrochemical industry.

When performance under extreme pressure and temperature conditions is critical, our specialized shell and tube heat exchangers are ideal. In fact, our shell and tube heat exchangers are regularly used in the most varied offshore and onshore plants.

Our plate heat exchangers – with their high pressure and temperature capabilities, unique materials, and special sealing qualities – are ideal for heat recovery tasks or the condensation of solvents.

No matter your application, we can select the right solution that’s efficient in cost, space, and emission requirements.
