Yuba has manufactured heat transfer equipment for over sixty years.
For easy explanation the heat exchanger is a series of tubes within a tube used for the
purpose of heating a colder fluid and cooling a hotter fluid. This is accomplished by flowing
one fluid inside small diameter tubes while the other fluid flows outside these same tubes.
The unites are usually about 4’ in diameter and contain a few thousand tubes, however,
they can be as large as 15’ in diameter or as small as 2’ in diameter with a proportional
number of tubes.
