There are three primary classifications of heat exchangers according to their flow arrangement. In parallel-flow heat exchangers, the two fluids enter the exchanger at the same end, and travel in parallel to one another to the other side. In counter-flow heat exchangers the fluids enter the exchanger from opposite ends. The counter current design is the most efficient, in that it can transfer the most heat from the heat (transfer) medium per unit mass due to the fact that the average temperature difference along any unit length this higher. In a cross-flow heat exchanger, the fluids travel roughly perpendicular to one another through the exchanger
What are different types of Heat Exchangers?
Heat exchangers come mainly in the following types to mention a few (i ) Braised Plate Heat Exchangers , (ii) Gasket Heat Exchangers
Efficiency that gives a competitive edge
Brazed plate heat exchangers are one of the most efficient ways to transfer heat. They are designed to provide unparalleled performance with the lowest life-cycle cost. Choosing brazed technology for your next heating or cooling project will bring many benefits, including savings in space, energy, and maintenance.
Advantages Gasketed Heat Plat Exchangers
Economical, low-capital investment, Easy to install, Heavy duty, Low maintenance costs, Compact modular design
Dirt in the systems, ice formation in refrigerators and mechanical damage are the reason to failure in heat exchangers
