Supersized Heat Exchangers Shipped


Published:

Something big has happened at Harsco Industrial Air-X-Changers (Harsco AXC), which makes air-cooled heat exchangers for the natural gas industry. The Catoosa, Oklahoma-based company has shipped the largest coolers in its 60-year history.

Weighing in at 180,000 lb. (81,647 kg), the Model 204-3Z coolers are 75 ft. long, 25.9 ft. wide and 14 ft. tall (22.9 m long, 7.9 m wide, 4.3 m tall). In late September 2013, Harsco AXC shipped the first of four units to a customer that will use the coolers in offshore natural gas operations in the Gulf of Mexico. A second unit left the Harsco AXC plant in mid-October, with the remaining two departing in November and December.
