AIC

B6-Line Heat Exchangers

Shell and Straight Tube Heat Exchanger

B6-Series heat exchangers are fabricated with the distinctive AIC thin-tube, high-density design. Intended for use with high fluid flows and close approach temperatures, these robust, compact units are ideal for many residential and industrial applications.

B6 heat exchangers have a performance closer to their compact brazed plate type counterparts owing to the unique thin-tube design tailored for flows in pool applications. Their complete stainless steel welded structure ensures product strength and high quality performance.
