Since most popular today are collapsible plate heat exchangers type, characterized by ease of installation, compactness, low hydraulic resistance, intense heat transfer, ease of manufacture and decontamination. Oil, gas and petrochemical production is impossible without a shell and tube, twisted, spiral heat exchangers and high conductivity, heat exchangers, so-called "pipe in pipe". Surprisingly, fact: the biggest production by weight and volume of vehicles to natural gas, petroleum, chemical industry is not widespread, plants produce their little piece, in several instances, in accordance with contract. There are of course approved projects production of heat exchangers, but every single order begins its life in the design office, where he developed the entire project documentation. Experienced engineers prepare all necessary drawings and diagrams of production, which in future is the creation of each individual unit. Manufacture of heat exchangers today - metal-, and, on what metals are used, depends on the future performance of the machine. Therefore, managers, technologists pay great attention to supplying the necessary materials and production technology nodes. Fortunately, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the producers of the metal and engineering workers are mostly preserved production relations, which enabled the engineering industry to survive and come out with confidence today at the world level and to give itself a opportunity to chemists and gas industry workers, oil workers.
In the production of heat exchangers passes through several stages of assembly. But many factories for the production of heat exchangers abandoned pipeline production, performs all phases of a comprehensive team of highly skilled, fully taking responsibility for literally every weld. This is especially important in the manufacture of large production of heat exchangers, where it is important to release the device quality and reliability. Another important stage of production - testing machine at the factory before shipment to the customer. This allows minimize failure rates in the heat exchanger further work in the enterprise, and solve the problem, if any.
Most often, the testing involved and representatives of the customer. At this stage, is solved question of who will be launching and installation of equipment on site, as well as activities for washing, maintenance, cleaning and repair of heat exchangers in service. These responsibilities often borne by the manufacturer as well as measures for the maintenance of heat exchangers often can not be done without a complex and often and ultrasound equipment. And if all phases of technical maintenance, development, production during the operation is successfully completed, the unit is sent to the customer is established and serves faithfully for many years.
