Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers Parts and Replacements:
Trust Mahan’s Thermal Products to supply bonnets and gaskets for shell & tube heat exchangers from a wide range of manufacturers. We also engineer, clean, and repair shell & tube bonnets and gaskets.
Sturdy, reliable, and versatile, shell and tube heat exchangers are able to handle a wide range of pressure and temperature requirements. However, in order to ensure the transfer of large amounts of heat, performance gaskets and bonnets are paramount.
Bonnets and gaskets in a shell & tube design play a major role in keeping the exchanger free of leaks and direct the flow of the liquid that is running through them. From heat processes to oil cooling, all these applications require a bonnet and gasket system that will create a leak free environment.
Although designed from solid materials, able to withstand high pressures and temperatures, even the most satisfactory bonnets and gaskets system will inevitably wear out. Replacing them is a process that must be carefully planned since they can affect the overall performance of the heat transfer process.
Dedicated providing a competitive and complete service at Mahan’s Thermal Products, you can find a supply of shell & tube bonnets and gaskets from the world’s largest manufacturers such as Alfa Laval, API Heat Transfer, or R.W. Holland.
How do you know if it’s time to change the bonnets or gaskets of your shell & tube heat exchanger?
In most heat transfer applications today, the need for higher thermal efficiency and better overall performance has increased. A worn out bonnet or gasket won’t be able to meet the extreme operating condition, resulting in the disruption of the entire systems.
Usual signs of a possible problem involve:
Incomplete seal between bonnet and gasket
An incomplete seal between the bonnet and the body of the gasket can lead to the formation of pinholes or cracks. This problem may be caused by corrosion, dirt or other foreign materials accumulated in the mating surfaces;
Leakage at the Gasket
Although the possibility of gasket leakage is rather small, it should still be considered. Leakage at the gaskets may be the result of flaws in the sealing surfaces of the gasket;
Excessive vibration noise
Excessive vibration noise may be the result of uneven body connection. It is usually caused by corrosion or by dust particles that entered the connection during installation.
Reliable gasket bonnets for shell & tube heat exchanger applications
We know that bonnets and gaskets are essential for the performance of shell & tube heat exchangers. At Mahan’s Thermal Products, we carry bonnet gaskets from some the best shell & tube heat exchanger manufacturers in the world.
Designed from solid materials they are suitable in applications dealing with high thermal, mechanical, and pressure conditions.
Besides selling bonnets and gaskets, we also provide cleaning and repairing. Our team of experts will inspect the gasket plates for pinholes and cracks and determine whether they need to be cleaned, repaired or replaced.
