Heat exchanger is a energy-saving equipment, which transfer between two or more different fluids. The heat transfer from the higher temperature to a lower temperature, make the fluid temperature meet the needs of process conditions, but it is also one of the major equipment to improve energy efficiency. Heat exchanger industry involving HVAC, pressure vessels, water treatment equipment, nearly 30 kinds of industries, each other to form the industrial chain.
Data show that in 2010 the market of Chinese heat exchanger industry at around 500 billion yuan, mainly in the petroleum, chemical, metallurgy, electric power, shipbuilding, central heating, refrigeration and air conditioning, machinery, food, pharmaceutical and other fields. Among them, the petrochemical industry is still the largest market exchanger industry, its market size of 15 billion yuan; power metallurgy heat exchanger market size of 80 billion yuan; Shipbuilding exchanger market size of 40 billion yuan; Machinery Industry exchanger market size of about 4 billion yuan; central heating heat exchanger industry market size of more than 3.0 billion, the food industry also has nearly 30 billion market. In addition, aerospace aircraft, semiconductors, nuclear island conventional island of nuclear power, wind turbines, solar photovoltaic, polysilicon production will require a lot of specialized heat exchangers, the market size of about 130 billion yuan.
Domestic heat exchanger industry in energy efficiency, improve heat transfer efficiency and reduce the heat transfer area, reducing pressure drop, research equipment and other aspects of improving thermal strength has made remarkable achievements. Based on the petroleum, chemical, electric power, metallurgy, shipbuilding, machinery, food, pharmaceutical and other industries heat stable demand growth, Chinas heat exchanger industry in the coming period will maintain stable growth during 2011-2020, Chinas heat exchanger industry will maintain an average annual rate of about 10-15% growth in 2020, the size of the heat exchanger industry is expected to reach 150 billion yuan.
