Air-cooled heat exchanger installation requirements

- Dec 19, 2017-

Air-cooled heat exchangers are more used in many of our heat exchanger types and are expected to be used by more and more users due to their excellent heat transfer. After the purchase, the most important thing is the installation problem. We should know that only properly installed, can ensure the normal use of air-cooled heat exchanger.


Next, we share some knowledge about the installation of air cooled heat exchanger for reference. First of all, in the installation process, we must first lay a good foundation. The most basic requirement is that the heat exchanger does not sink enough, and that excessive deformation must not pass over the heat exchanger. Commonly used foundation includes two types.


One of the foundations is the concrete foundation, which requires the use of anchor bolts to securely connect the air cooled heat exchanger with the saddle and foundations. The other is the brick saddle-shaped foundation, this time there is no saddle bearings on the heat exchanger, which can be placed directly on the saddle-shaped foundation, the heat exchanger and the foundation is not fixed, it can with the thermal expansion Need to move freely.


It should be noted that, before the installation also need to complete a series of inspection items. The main content of the inspection to the installation of the foundation for quality inspection and acceptance. In this process, pay special attention to the basic surface overview, including the basic elevation, the plane position, the shape and the main dimensions as well as the reserved holes to ensure that the installation requirements are met. In addition to checking and confirming the correct location of the anchor bolt, the thread is in good condition, the nut and washer are complete, and the base surface on which the horn is placed is flat.


After the acceptance of the basic part, but also pay attention to the installation of air cooled heat exchanger, the need to now based on the horn. Remember, the placement of the horn must be flat to ensure that the two are in flexible contact. As for the thickness of the horn should be properly adjusted, so that the air-cooled heat exchanger to achieve the level of design.
