Brazed Aluminum Heat Exchangers


The gas processing industry experienced failures of some brazed aluminum heat exchangers (BAHX), both minor and catastrophic. The GPA Midstream Association Board directed an initial sub-committee to research causes and to identify recommendations to minimize future failures and published Technical Bulletin GPA-TB-M-001 in September 2015. Following the February 2019 publication of “Loss of Containment, Fires, and Explosions at Enterprise Products Midstream Gas Plant” (No. 2016-02-I-MS) by the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board, the GPA Midstream Board commissioned a new sub-committee to consider the observations and recommendations documented in the referenced U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board report in addition to contributions from sub-committee members. This Revision 1 of the original bulletin incorporates the findings of this sub-committee.
