Air cooled heat exchangers are commonly used in industrial applications where a reliable source of water is not available as a cooling medium.
Air cooled steam condensers are a special type of heat exchanger specialized to condense steam at the exhaust end of a steam turbine for both power generation and mechanicaly driven applications.
The distributor (header) of this model is a completely welded box with holes in front of each finned tube to allow cleaning and inspection. The design effectively meets competing needs such as low cost and high versatility.
This configuration can cover most common applications with operating conditions typically up to 220 bar (3,192 psi).
