Renewable Energy Heat Exchanger & Pressure Vessel

Mason has been a major fabricator of custom renewable energy heat exchanger and pressure vessels for years. In that time, we have fabricated exchangers and vessels in a variety of renewable energy market sectors.

Generally a renewable energy shell and tube heat exchanger and pressure vessel carries very specific requirements that require a custom fabrication solution. Mason can fabricate a wide variety of solutions. Each renewable energy shell and tube heat exchanger and pressure vessel is built to unique customer specifications and required codes.

For heat exchanger solutions, Mason can fabricate all TEMA heat exchanger variations, including U-Tube bundles, fixed tubesheet, floating tubesheet, and shells with or without expansion joints.

Most significantly, Mason Manufacturing has been a major supplier for the ethanol and butanol industry. We participated in both Generation 1 and 2 of ethanol evolution and have been placing vessels in ethanol plants since the early 1990s. Mason placed vessels in over two-thirds of the approximate 150 ethanol plants constructed in the mid-2000s. Most recently, Mason has fabricated vessels for two of the three largest cellulosic ethanol plants recently launched in the Midwest.

Within the category of renewable energy heat exchanger and pressure vessel solutions, vessels fabricated for each of the plants include: mass transfer columns for distillation, sieve vaporizers, and 190 proof condensers. Mason has also fabricated many custom tanks for renewable energy customers. Many ethanol plants require additional enhancements that Mason can provide, including extended surface tubing and turbulators.

Mason is also a code shop, certified to use carbon steel, stainless steel, duplex stainless, clad materials, and a variety of exotic metals. Many renewable energy heat exchanger and pressure vessel units can be optimized with reduced costs by using a combination of materials.
