Double Pipe Heat Exchanger
A double pipe heat exchanger is one of the simplest form
of Heat Exchangers.
The wall of the inner pipe is the heat transfer surface.
The major use of these HX is sensible cooling or heating
A heat exchanger is required to heat treated cooling water with a flow reate of 60 kg/s from
10 to 50 oC using the waste heat from water, cooling from 60 to 20 oC with the same mass
flow rate as the cold water. The maximum allowable pressure

Plate heat exchangers
The heat transfer surface consists of a number of thin
corrugated plates pressed out of a high grade metal.
The pressed pattern on each plate surface induces
turbulence and minimises stagnant areas and fouling.

5,000 kgfhr of water will be heated from 20°C to 35°C by hot water at 140°C. A 15C hot
water temperature drop is allowed. A number of double-pipe heat exchangers with annuli
and pipes each cemented in series will be used. Hot water flows thro
