Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
Over the past five years, operators in the Boiler and Heat Exchanger Manufacturing industry recovered after contending with recessionary conditions. However, the recession was relatively shallow and as demand from downstream markets improved, so did industry revenue. Over the five years to 2019, industry revenue will continue on its upward trajectory, but import competition is projected to intensify, thereby tapering industry growth... purchase to read more

Heat exchangers and steam condensers
This product segment accounts for an estimated 58.2% of industry revenue. A heat exchanger is a device used for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another. Exchangers are used in a wide variety of processes, ranging from space heating and power production to oil refining and chemical processing. There are four types of exchangers: shell and tube heat exchangers, plate heat exchangers, regenerative heat exchangers and an adiabatic wheel heat exchanger.
A shell and tube heat exchanger is composed of a number of tubes through which liquid flows. One set of tubes contains a liquid that is supposed to be heated or cooled, while another set of tubes contains the liquid that is supposed to trigger the heat exchange... purchase to read more
