|API’s extensive line of Basco/Whitlock HT, AHT, and 550 hub-style heat exchangers offers the benefits of non-ferrous construction in a highly standardized design for maximum flexibility at minimum cost. Hub design advantages include increased corrosion resistance, maximum obtainment of tube quantity in a given diameter for better efficiency, and lower entrance velocity and pressure drop as a result of the dome shell nozzle.|

|Type HT heat exchangers have been in production since 1965. Standard HT models feature low-cost, non-ferrous construction with brass shell, brass tubesheet and straight copper tubes. End bonnets are cast iron. Numerous options including special materials and nozzle orientation are available.
Type AHT heat exchangers feature all 316 Stainless Steel construction in a wide variety of configurations. Modified units are suitable for critical service where ultra-clean conditions are paramount. Options include seal welding of tube to tube sheet joints and polished surfaces for pharmaceutical and food processing applications.
Type HTR and AHTR feature a removable tube bundle design allowing shellside cleaning and bundle replacement, rare in a low cost small diameter design where tubesheets are typically fixed. Available in non-ferrous or stainless designs.
Type 550 Heat Exchangers offers users of competitive brands the ability to realize better overall value in their heat exchanger purchases. Engineered and manufactured to be dimensionally interchangeable with certain ITT Standard and Thermal Transfer models, Basco/Whitlock 550 models feature collared baffles that minimize fluid by-pass for maximum thermal performance. Spare parts, including bonnets and gaskets, are also interchangeable.
