Four Types of Heat Exchanger Failures

U-tube heat exchangers usually provide a long service life with little or no maintenance because they do not contain any moving parts.

This article provides plant engineers with a detailed look at the problems that can develop.
It also describes the corrective actions that should be taken to prevent them.
