Sometimes the biggest constraint on the choice of heat exchanger is the space available for its installation, and so the physical size of the unit outweighs other factors. However, in such situations it is important to ensure that the thermal performance is still suitable for the chosen use.

This is exactly the rationale for the introduction of the HRS C Series of compact multitube heat exchangers. Based on the popular HRS K Series, but with smaller tubes to reduce the size of the unit, the C series has been adopted for a number of uses since its introduction two years ago.

Suitable for a wide range of low viscosity uses, including food, environmental and industrial situations, the HRS C Series features HRS’s corrugated tube technology which increases heat transfer and thermal efficiency while also minimising the effects of fouling.

The smaller tube diameter means that more tubes can be fitted into each unit, meaning that heat transfer is more efficient. This results in a more compact unit as the overall length of the heat exchanger can be reduced for a given capacity. The C Series is manufactured from stainless steel – although other materials are available – with standard connection types.
