The basic heat exchanger manufactured at Bendel is a piece of equipment built for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another. The media may be separated by a solid wall, so that they never mix, or they may be in direct contact. At Bendel, we customize every heat exchanger project to the specific and demanding tasks that our heat exchanger clients need.
Our in-house engineering team stresses definition of design, testing, fabricating, and quality control at each stage of development. We are advanced users of exceptional engineering and design software systems like HTRI, AutoCAD and Compress.
Shell and tube heat exchangers consist of a series of tubes. One set of these tubes contains the fluid that must be either heated or cooled. The second fluid runs over the tubes that are being heated or cooled so that it can either provide the heat or absorb the heat required. A set of tubes is called the tube bundle and can be made up of several types of tubes: plain, longitudinally finned, etc. Shell and tube heat exchangers are typically used for high-pressure applications (with pressures greater than 30 bar and temperatures greater than 260°C). This is because the shell and tube heat exchangers are robust due to their shape.
Our Quickmill Intimidator is the superior solution for large part machining and drilling accuracy. The Quickmill gives us increased production efficiency while improving the quality and performance of our Shell & Tubesheet Heat Exchangers.
Our Intimidator Gantry 96 (96″ x 185.5″) provides our craftsmen with a powerful, precise tool that performs flawlessly time after time. Bendel even accepts drilling outsource project work where you can ship the materials to us or we can purchase and ship finished products back to you.
