AIH products are used as heat exchangers on mobile and industrial hydraulic systems. They are also used in the chemical process industry for cooling or heating applications using steam and process fluids. Heat exchanger selections for new applications are made by providing the hot and cold side fluid information, fluid flow rates, maximum operating pressures and temperatures, as well as the related heating or cooling requirements. The fluids in use will in turn determine the component materials of construction; copper, copper-nickel, brass, steel, and stainless steel.
When original model numbers are not available, and information on the operating parameters is limited, duplicate units can often be selected based on surface area, dimensions, shell and tube port size and location. Selection assistance or interchange requests can be submitted by phone, fax, Email, or through the AIH Engineering website!
