API Heat Transfer ...world leaders in heat transfer technology

 

State-of-the-Art Heat Exchanger Manufacturing Expertise for a Wide Range Duties

Robotic CNC Machining Center
Robotic CNC Machining Center assures precision drilled tubesheets, twenty four hours a day

 

Certified Demand Flow Production Methods and ISO Quality.

API Heat Transfer has fully embraced the superior quality, improved work-flow and cost controls inherent in Demand Flow Technology (DTF) manufacturin. Products are made "on-demand" from components and in-line support machining centers. With DTF, non-value procedures are eliminated, inventory costs are reduced, and quality is maintained and verified at every phase of the assembly. API also has ISO 9001 certification assuring world-class manufacturing methods and full accountability to our customers.

 

DFT and ISO 9001 result in reduced cycle time, increased flexibility, higher efficiencies, consistently high quality, and... MORE VALUE FOR OUR CUSTOMERS!

 

 

Rolled Coil TubingUse of rolled coil tubing supports the flexibility inherent in DTF manufacturing. Special straightening equipment and unique burr-free cutting process for superior rolled joints.
Grinding Process API's Additional grinding process flattens tube ends and tubesheets which reduces risk of crevice corrosion, ensure even gasket compression and eliminates cracking of casting during manufacturing and servicing of units.
Heavy stamped stell brackets are standard and can be rotated and reversed for a variety of mounting needs. Cradle mounting is available on all models.
Tubes are available in Copper, 90/10 CuNi, Stainless Steel, Admiralty or Titanium. Tubes are roller expanded. Seal welding and grooving available in some cases.
End bonnets are of high quality cast Iron, Bronze or Stainless Steel in 1, 2 or 4-pass configurations. Fabricated heads are available  and are standard of TEMA-C models.
Heat Exchanger
Rugged shell available in Steel and Stainless Steel. Minimum clearances between shell and baffles reduce by-pass and maximize heat transfer.
Precision punched baffles assure effective circulations by providing minimum clearencs between the tubes and tube holes. Baffle cuts and spacing for each diameter are consistent with best practices.
Thick Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel or 90/10 CuNi tubesheets are welded to the shell.
