Linde Engineering has delivered over 1,000 coil-wound heat exchangers (CWHEs) to date, making it a world leader in this field of technology
Coil-wound heat exchangers (CWHEs) are required for a wide range of applications involving fluid treatment. They must support broad temperature and pressure ranges as well as single- and two-phase streams.
We custom-design and build CWHEs for the widest application spectrum, always meeting individual thermal and hydraulic performance needs. To support individual temperature range and corrosion resistance requirements, we use an almost unrestricted range of materials including austenitic steels, aluminium alloys, carbon steel, nickel and chrome/moly alloys. Our CWHEs are extremely robust, in particular during start-up, shut-down and accidental interruption. They are typically used as coolers, heaters, liquefiers, vaporisers and isothermal reactors.
Highlights of our CWHEs:
Broad temperature and pressure ranges
Multiple fluids treated in a single exchanger
Compact footprint with high specific transfer area
High pressure service
Robust design capable of absorbing start-ups, shut-downs and thermo shocks
