Shell and Tube Marine Heat Exchangers

Efficient heat exchangers for cooling electric motors, battery packs, chargers, AC-DC converters, DC-DC converters, inverters and associated equipment in electric and hybrid marine propulsion systems.

For over 80 years, Bowman has provided quality heat exchangers for the marine industry. Now, as the industry seeks to lower CO2 emissions, Bowman can also provide cooling solutions for electric and hybrid systems being developed to meet the increasingly stringent emissions legislation in many parts of the world.

Product Benefits

  • Compact design Easier to integrate where space is limited
  • Premium quality UK manufactured using quality components
  • Proven durability Already specified by leading OE manufacturers
  • Comprehensive range From 3 kW to 701 kW heat dissipation
  • Thermal calculations Provided quickly by our technical experts

Efficiency and Durability

Bowman heat exchangers are renowned for their high performance and long-life durability, even in the harshest conditions.

Suitable Materials

The materials used in the construction of Bowman heat exchangers are proven for use in sea water applications and are already widely used for E&H system cooling.

Simple to Maintain

A precision-engineered, fully floating tube stack minimises thermal stress, providing efficient heat transfer and low pressure drop.

Shell and Tube Heat Marine Exchangers – Typical Performance and Dimensions

The following information offers a general guide to the performance and dimensions of our standard range of marine grade shell and tube heat exchangers.

Easy Product Selection

Electric and hybrid systems are often designed to operate with sea water temperatures of 30 °C plus, making selecting the right heat exchanger critical. Whilst the table below lists typical performance examples at given temperatures and flow rates, this is intended as a general guide only.

However, by supplying the following information, we can provide a computer aided product selection, to recommend the most appropriate heat exchanger for your requirements:

  • Coolant type and concentration
  • Heat to be dissipated in kW
  • Required coolant outlet temperature in °C
  • Coolant flow in l/min
  • Sea water temperature in °C
The image above is representative of the Shell and Tube Marine Heat Exchanger range from EC80 to RK600.

Note – Dimensions in the table refer to standard three-pass, sea water heat exchangers. For part numbers and more detailed drawings, please download the brochure or contact the technical sales team.
