Exchangers make the heat transfer by means of convection.
They are equipment with a more compact design, which allows a quick and easy assembly.
In a heat exchanger the tube bundle is fixed to the frame that contains it, so avoiding possible breaks as a consequence of the different thermal expansions between the bundle and the frame, adding compensators or bending the bundle tubes.
Not very high gases temperature, near 700-750 ºC. When a duct to put the tube bundle in is not available.
