Hydrocarbon Condensers & Coolers - Air Cooled Steam Condensers

Hydrocarbon & Steam Condensers

Hayden’s Engineers are experts at designing coolers for condensing fluids. In addition to traditional refrigerants, our coolers can be designed for hydrocarbon condensers and steam condensers. In some cases, the cooling process of hydrocarbons or steam, may result in some gaseous vapor condensing into liquid. The latent heat required for the condensation must be considered in the thermal design of the cooler. Additionally, heavier liquids must be handled as they separate from the gases.


Key Features

• Compact finned coolers available with a wide range of fin and tube materials.

• Products can be designed to meet API-661 requirements, NACE Standards, CRN Code Requirements, and many more.

• Specialty coatings available for corrosion protection in harsh environments.

• Coolers are evacuated to 1000 microns to ensure the bundle is dry after hydro testing.

Our sizes range from 18’’ x 18’’ up to multiple bays that are 15’ wide by 65’ long. Hayden Industrial’s hydrocarbon and steam condenser coolers can withstand up to 400°F.
