CNF, CN, CF and SV Series
Tube Bundle Heat Exchangers
The type CNF, CN, CF, and SV heat ex-
changers are sized and designed to meet
a large range of system requirements,
and include all connections for all acces-
sories required.
In the gas pressure reduction process
according to the “Joule-Thomson” effect,
temperature drops considerably (ap-
proximately 0.5° C per reduction bar).
This fall in gas temperature can damage
the equipment due to the formation of
dangerous ice crystals produced by water
vapor in the gas.
Particularly in first stage stations, high
pressure changes are usually involved,
therefore, the gas must be heated before
pressure is reduced.
It is recommended that, after reduction,
gas temperature should not be below 5°C.
One of the best established methods of
heating gas in reduction stations is to use
heat exchangers employing hot water or
steam as their thermal carrier fluid.
CNF, CN, CF, and SV Series are in con-
formity with the Pressure Equipment
Directive PED 97/23/EC and are classified
under Category IV maximum.
