are very simple and reliable. They may require pumping of the column bottoms liquid into the kettle. In this reboiler type, steam flows through the tube bundle and exits as condensate. The liquid from the bottom of the tower, commonly called the bottoms, flows through the shell side. There is a retaining wall or overflow weir separating the tube bundle from the reboiler section where the residual reboiled liquid (called the bottoms product) is withdrawn so that the tube bundle is kept covered with liquid.
