API Energy corrugated tube heat exchangers

In API Energy corrugated tube heat exchangers,  high heat transfer and efficiency are increased over standard smooth tube heat exchangers. In addition, potential fouling is minimised, making it possible to supply more compact and economical heat exchangers.

API Energy offers a wide product range, with models developed for various types of industries, manufactured from stainless steel. Bespoke designs and other materials are also available. These are tube heat exchangers formed by two concentric tubes and are especially useful for treating slurries (fluids which contain significant amounts of fibres or suspended particles) and particulate fluids (such as fruit dices). Multi-tube heat exchangers are developed for processing viscous products industrial applications such as CIP solution heating, steam water heating, energy recovery, condensation, food, dairy, beverage & sanitary applications etc.


Product description

API Energy Corrugated tubes Heat Exchanger are fixed shell & tube heat exchanger having multiple corrugated tubes with removable ‘U’ Bundle design is also possible.

API Energy Corrugated tubes Heat Exchanger designed for use in pharmaceutical or biotech applications. All contact parts have a surface roughness Ra<0.4µm. Manufactured as per GMP standards.

API Energy Corrugated tubes Heat Exchanger design for use in sanitary application in the Food & application includes process such as pasteurisation, high temperature sterilization, thermal treatment for aseptic packaging etc.

API Energy Corrugated tubes Heat Exchanger are used in Chemical Industry, Petrochemical industry, Refineries, Paints, Oil, Soaps & Various industrial applications.


Higher heat transfer co-efficient: API Energy Corrugated tubes Heat Exchanger increase the turbulence in the flow that enables a more effective mixing and agitation that generates a higher heat transfer coefficient compared to smooth tubes at the same conditions. In many cases, the heat transfer co-efficient is almost doubled.

Compact Size heat exchanger. The heat transfer area of corrugated tube heat exchanger is 30% to 50% less than plain tube heat exchanger (% depends on case to case design)

Economical: The cost of Corrugated tube heat exchanger is 25% To 50% less than the cost of a plain tube heat exchanger for the same duty. When exotic materials are used significant savings can be made on the overall cost of the unit.

Reduced Fouling: API Energy Corrugated tubes Heat Exchanger carries a self cleaning effect due to it’s Corrugation that reduces fouling on the tube surface. Less fouling means smaller heat exchanger and longer production cycles.

Low maintenance & operating cost.

Longer running times without stopping for cleaning. Higher response to CIP cleaning.

Homogenous Thermal treatment due to the mixing capacity.

Food products processed by API Energy Corrugated tubes Heat Exchanger retain most of their natural properties & vitamins because the heat transfer process is faster and so the products is suitable to heat for less time.

Efficient: In condensing applications, API Energy Corrugated tubes Heat Exchanger are more efficient than the plain tube heat exchanger. The thin film formed over the tube by the condensing vapors breaks off due to the corrugation there by exposing fresh surface of the tube for heat transfer, hence making them more efficient.

Versatile: API Energy Corrugated tubes Heat Exchanger are versatile since they are able to process different products in the same installation.

API Energy Corrugated tubes Heat Exchanger are available in Wide range of Material of Construction.
