Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger Industry News

  • In January 2024, DASCO Co., Ltd. celebrated the completion of its Mieum Factory in Busan, with its business employees. Despite facing numerous challenges, the new factory came into operation, and is ready for heat exchanger and pressure vessel design and production. This plant completion will expand the company’s market presence across shell & tube heat exchanger industry.
  • In November 2023, BASF's amine plant in Ludwigshafen, Germany, replaced two bulky shell-and-tube heat exchangers with a single, more compact Alfa Laval Compabloc unit. This switch was driven by both the Compabloc's space-saving design, and its lower initial cost compared to traditional shell-and-tube exchangers. The original exchangers were unfortunately prone to damage due to the frequent process shutdowns and startups at the plant.
