What is Heat exchanger?

A heat exchanger is a system used to transfer heat between two or more fluids. Heat exchangers are used in both cooling and heating processes. The fluids may be separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing or they may be in direct contact. They are widely used in space heating, refrigeration, air conditioning, power stations, chemical plants, petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries, natural-gas processing, and sewage treatment. The classic example of a heat exchanger is found in an internal combustion engine in which a circulating fluid known as engine coolant flows through radiator coils and air flows past the coils, which cools the coolant and heats the incoming air. Another example is the heat sink, which is a passive heat exchanger that transfers the heat generated by an electronic or a mechanical device to a fluid medium, often air or a liquid coolant.

How to Calculate Area of the heat exchanger?

Area of the heat exchanger calculator uses Area=Heat exchanged/(Overall heat transfer coefficient*Logarithmic mean temperature difference*Correction factor) to calculate the Area, The Area of the heat exchanger formula is defined as the total area through which the heat exchange takes place.

FAQ

What is Area of the heat exchanger?
The Area of the heat exchanger formula is defined as the total area through which the heat exchange takes place and is represented as A=Q/(U*ΔTm*F) or Area=Heat exchanged/(Overall heat transfer coefficient*Logarithmic mean temperature difference*Correction factor). Heat exchanged is the amount of heat transferred between two objects, Overall heat transfer coefficient is the overall convective heat transfer between a fluid medium (a fluid) and the surface (wall) flowed over by the fluid, Logarithmic mean temperature difference is the log of mean of the temperature values and Correction factor is that is multiplied with the result of an equation to correct for a known amount of systematic error.
