Replacing a Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger? And Have the Model Number?
Replacing a Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger? Whether you’re dealing with an old TACO or Bell & Gossett unit, give us the model number and serial number to your heat exchanger and 9/10 times we can replace it! If you’ve dealt with Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers in the past, you know that the shell portion of the Heat Exchanger can last 40+ years. You are also aware that the tubes and bundles usually cannot. When these bundles fail, the typical customer cannot wait 8-10 weeks for the OEM to get the requisite part manufactured and sent back. Capital Coil understands that quick turn-around time is essential, so we offer both 10 & 5 day shipments 12 months/year.
There are 3 main types of shell & tube heat exchangers:
- “U” Tube heat exchangers where it is possible to remove the entire bundle
- Fixed tube heat exchangers where the tube sheet are welded to the shell and stationary and the bundle is not removable
- Floating tube heat exchangers where one tube sheet is fixed and the other floats axially. This tube bundle is also removable.
So what information do we require to get started on your replacement Heat Exchanger or Tubes & Bundles? As mentioned, if you have the model #, in most cases, we should be able to cross-reference that unit from our product library. Send that information to our sales department, and a member of our team will get back to you with a quote – simple as that. In the rare cases when we cannot cross-reference your model number, we can provide blank drawings that specify what measurements we need and where they’re located on the unit. Please see our product pages on REPLACEMENT TUBE BUNDLES and SHELL & TUBE HEAT EXCHANGERS for product specifications and blank product drawings.
Capital Coil has extensive expertise at replacing bundles and heat exchangers for emergency situations. We can easily get you information on performance, design and cost. Please give us a call for your next job. We look forward to working with on your next opportunity.
Quick, Reliable & Uncommonly Fast
Quick, Reliable & Uncommonly Fast
You have many choices when buying replacement coils and choosing a coil supplier. You could decide to diversify and work with numerous suppliers, based on a particular need. However, Capital Coil & Air can make your buying decisions a lot easier. We have been in the coil business for many years, and in this industry, we recognize what is important vs. what is irrelevant. That translates into us having good insight on what you need and how best to support you as a customer.
Coils today typically do not have much “preventative” maintenance done on them. Most everybody just waits until a coil fails and then worries about the problem at that time. And when coils inevitably fail, they fail during the times when you need them most; i.e. cooling coils failing in the summer and hot water coils breaking down in the winter. As a result, there is usually an urgency attached to most HVAC projects. Generally speaking, most jobs require some form of “quick-ship”. Capital Coil & Air gives you (4) different shipping options for all replacement coils. Our standard ship time is 3 – 4 weeks, but if you need your order faster, Capital Coil will accommodate that need. We do not want to have a “one and done” transaction. Capital Coil’s goal as a business is to have a customer base that we work with for 20 years, not 20 minutes. While we will do our best to give you the fairest price possible, you have to recognize that there is an additional premium associated with quick-shipments on replacement coils. However, you will never pay that premium if Capital Coil is late on manufacturing your order. We’ve built our business on quick-ships, and we hit 99% of all deadlines on orders the last two years. In other words, we rarely miss! We give you options, and you only pay for what you really need.
Reliability encompasses so many things in the coil industry. For example, if you need a price today, and the sales rep takes (2) days to get back to you, that’s unacceptable and unreliable. If you require a drawing to help you design a job, and you are waiting for a week to have it returned? Again, not what Capital Coil considers reliable. If a coil supplier promises you a ship date and ships (2) weeks late? Once again, not reliable. Do any of the above issues sound familiar? It is easy to make extravagant promises, and companies do it all of the time. However, Capital Coil’s success rate on meeting and exceeding shipping schedules says more than any promise we can make. We believe in under-promising and over-delivering, not the reverse!
