A heat exchanger is an energy-saving device that transfers heat between materials at two or more fluids at different temperatures. It transfers heat from a higher fluid to a lower temperature fluid, and the fluid temperature reaches the process specification. The indicator meets the needs of process process conditions while also improving energy efficiency as one of the main equipment. The heat exchanger industry involves nearly 30 industries including HVAC, pressure vessels and water treatment equipment, forming an industrial chain.
In 2010, China's heat exchanger industry market scale is about 50 billion yuan, mainly concentrated in the fields of petroleum, chemical, metallurgy, electric power, shipbuilding, central heating, refrigeration and air conditioning, machinery, food, and pharmaceuticals. Among them, the petrochemical industry is still the market of heat exchanger industry, its market scale is 15 billion yuan; the market of heat exchangers in the field of power metallurgy is about 8 billion yuan; the market of heat exchangers for shipbuilding industry is more than 4 billion yuan; machinery The market size of industrial heat exchangers is about 4 billion yuan; the market for heat exchangers in the central heating industry is over 3 billion yuan, and the food industry has a market of nearly 3 billion yuan. In addition, spacecraft, semiconductor devices, nuclear island nuclear islands, wind turbines, solar photovoltaic power generation and other fields require a large number of professional heat exchangers, these markets are about 13 billion yuan.
In recent years, the domestic heat exchanger industry has made remarkable achievements in energy saving and efficiency improvement, heat transfer efficiency reduction, heat transfer reduction, pressure drop reduction, and heat intensity of the device. Based on the growing demand for heat exchangers in petroleum, chemical, electric power, metallurgy, shipbuilding, machinery, food, pharmaceutical and other industries, China's heat exchanger industry will maintain steady growth in the coming period. It is expected that between 2011 and 2020, China's heat exchanger industry will maintain an average annual growth rate of 10-15%. By 2020, China's heat exchanger industry is expected to reach 150 billion yuan. At present, the national heat exchange equipment market is in a market condition that supply is in short supply, and the heat exchange equipment industry is in a period of golden growth.
