Temperature control of liquids Tube coil heat exchangers (so-called tube cooling coil heat exchangers) are generally used to control the temperature of liquids. This system can also be used to heat or cool liquids in a controlled manner. Due to their special shape, pipe coil heat exchangers are sometimes also called hairpin heat exchangers. Inexpensive applications The simple and solid structure enables it to be used in cost-effective applications. Coiled tube evaporator systems are ideally suited for brine and glycol applications. Classic variant Coiled tube evaporator systems are a classic and proven variant in the field of heat exchanger systems. Coiled tube heat exchangers are often used in ice storage systems or in the production of cold water units. In ice storage systems, coils can be used to achieve an even build-up of ice around the coils.
