It occurs in all industries and most heat exchanger designs, with impacts ranging from heat transfer degradation to flow resistance and pressure drops. By forming a kind of insulation on heat-transfer surfaces and reducing heat transfer, fouling undermines heat exchange efficiency.
To prevent corrosion fouling from layers of thermal-resistant material, select units fabricated with corrosion-resistant stainless steels and alloys. Plates, tubes, and entire heat exchanger units may be fabricated with AISI 304 or AISI 316L stainless steel.
Shell-and-tube heat exchangers operate at comparatively low internal fluid velocities so are more susceptible to fouling than plate heat exchangers. To maintain efficient operation and higher transfer coefficients, keep the shell and tube heat transfer surfaces clean.
