## What is Shell Diameter, Clearance, Bundle Diameter?

The shell diameter refers to the outer diameter of the cylindrical shell portion of the heat exchanger. This shell encloses the tube bundle and contains the fluid that exchanges heat with the fluid flowing through the tubes.

The clearance is the distance between tubes in the tube bundle and the shell inner diameter. Appropriate distance must be maintained between the shell and tube bundle in order to reduce hindrance in shell and tube heat exchanger.

The bundle diameter, also known as the "tube sheet diameter," is the diameter of the circular tube sheet that holds and supports the tube bundle within the shell.

## What is a Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger?

A Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger is a common type of heat exchanger used in various industrial applications to transfer heat between two fluids. It consists of a large, cylindrical outer shell (usually made of metal) with multiple smaller tubes (also made of metal) running through it. The tubes are arranged in a bundle inside the shell and are typically oriented parallel to the shell's longitudinal axis.
