API Basco Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers

API Basco Type 500, HT, AHT and BWS, OP and TEMA Designed Shell & Tube
Heat Exchangers

API Heat Transfer's extensive line of Basco/Whitlock 500, HT, AHT, BWS, BWU, OP and
TEMA designated heat exchangers run the gamut, offering the benefits of ferrous and non-
ferrous construction in highly standardized designs or fully engineered, TEMA designated heat
exchangers. Standard units are dimensionally interchangeable with heat exchangers made by
Thermal Transfer, ITT, Basco, Whitlock, Ketema, Young, and American Industrial among others
API design advantages include increased corrosion resistance, maximum obtainment of tube
quantity in a given diameter for better efficiency, and lower entrance velocity and pressure drop
as a result of the dome shell nozzle.
