It is the most common type of heat exchanger in oil refineries and other large chemical processes, is suited for higher-pressure applications. consists of a shell with a bundle of tubes inside it.
Shell and tube heat exchanger One fluid runs through the tubes, and another fluid flows over the tubes to transfer heat between the two fluids. The set of tubes is called a tube bundle, and may be composed by several types of tubes: plain, longitudinally finned, etc. For more details, please kindly refer to group 2 presentation. :D
uses metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids. major advantage is that fluids are exposed to a much larger surface area because the fluids spread out over the plates. need well-sealed gaskets to prevent the fluids from escaping
Regenerative heat exchanger more commonly known as regenerator
Regenerative heat exchanger the flow through the heat exchanger is cyclical and periodically changes direction. a regenerator mixes the two fluid flows. The temperature profile remains at a nearly constant temperature, and this includes the fluid entering and exiting each end.
uses an intermediate fluid or solid store to hold heat, which is then moved to the other side of the heat exchanger to be released. it is acceptable for a small amount of mixing to occur between the two streams
This type of heat exchanger uses "sandwiched" passages containing fins to increase the effectivity of the unit. The designs include crossflow and counterflow coupled with various fin configurations such as straight fins, offset fins and wavy fins.
This is a heat exchanger with a gas passing upwards through a shower of fluid, and the fluid is then taken elsewhere before being cooled. This is commonly used for cooling gases whilst also removing certain impurities, thus solving two problems at once.
recovers heat from a hot gas stream while transferring it to a working medium, typically water or oils. The hot gas stream can be the exhaust gas from a gas turbine or a diesel engine or a waste gas from industry or refinery.
Dynamic scraped surface heat exchanger can be used either to heat a liquid to evaporate (or boil) it or used as condensers to cool a vapor and condense it to a liquid
Direct contact heat exchangers involve heat transfer between hot and cold streams of two phases in the absence of a separating wall. can be classified as: –Gas – liquid –Immiscible liquid –liquid –Solid-liquid or solid- gas
