Heat Exchanger

A heat exchanger is a piece of equipment that transfers heat from one medium to another and follows the equalization principle. There are two main types of heat exchanger are direct heat exchange and indirect heat exchange though divided media.

  • Plate Heat Exchangers (PHE):

Plate heat exchangers are one of the most common types of heat exchanger employed today.This has a major advantage over a conventional heat exchanger in that the fluids are exposed to a much larger surface area because the fluids are spread out over the plates. With a plate heat exchanger, heat cuts through the surface and separates the hot medium from the cold. Thus, heating and cooling fluids and gases use minimal energy levels.

  • Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers (STHE):

A shell and tube heat exchanger (STHE) consists of a series of tubes housed within a cylindrical container known as a shell. All tubes within the shell are collectively termed a tube bundle. Each tube passes through a series of baffles and tube tube stacks.

This simplicity design create exceptionally efficient heat exchange rate. The process of a shell and tube heat exchanger involves the use of a liquid or steam that flows into the shell to heat the tubes. Four passes through the tubes is considered to be the most efficient and effective method of heat transfer.
