what is mean by floating type heat exchanger?

I am studing the details of heat exchangers using in refinery, where I heared a word floating type heat exchanger. Hence i want to know the process application with detail


Floating Type Heat Exchanger
Did yer know the world football cup. was once stolen out of a shop window, and a dog called ''Pickles'' found it under a bush, what do yer think about that then .. look it up'
In some plant operations it is possible for the tubes to get to a temperature such that they expand to a level that could cause them to buckle. In come cases a U-Tube exchanger is used to address this problem. Others the floating head type is used. Here one of the tubesheets is fabricated so the sheet can move to compensate for the thermal expansion. I can send you a picture of several types of floating heads if that would be useful.
