SS Seamless Condenser Tube available according to international standards and specifications
The design of a Condenser tube is to condense process fluid out of the outside of the tube in the most efficient manner possible. The utility of Shell And Tube Condenser Stainless Steel is primarily suited to applications involving heat exchangers. In heat exchangers, there are several secondary operations where the SS Condenser Tubing is suited to be used. For instance, these tubes are used as a part of an evaporator and condenser refrigeration cycle in a chiller, right up to being used to condense steam in surface condensers.
It is typical to manufacture the Ss 304/ 316l Condenser Coil Tubing with an O.D. or an outer diameter that falls in any one of the following dimensions - ⅝ inch, ¾ inch, and 1inch. However, some applications demand the use of a larger O.D. tube in comparison to the conventional dimensions mentioned here. One such example is an ammonia chiller, which makes use of a Stainless Steel Condenser Tube whose outer diameter exceeds the more conventional 1 inch dimensions. In order to improve their performance and efficiency, an Ss Seamless Condenser Tube could be processed by use of finished either internally or externally. The main functions of a condenser are to de-superheat, condense, and subcool.
Since the Ss 304 Condenser Tubing is exposed to high levels of heat, it is necessary to use the appropriate alloy such that the metal is able to sustain itself during applications. So while grade 304 Seamless Condenser Tubes might be the obvious choice for economical purposes, for applications that demand a higher tensile strength and even greater resistance to corrosion, a safer bet would be using alloy 316. Although in terms of cost the price of Stainless Steel 316l Condenser Tubes is higher, considering its performance and higher work life in the long run, the use of grade 316 is a better choice. From resisting several acids and alkalis, the Ss 316 Condenser Tube, which is designated as marine grade works well in multiple high pressure and high temperature environments, especially if compared to grade 304.
