Review on Research Design and Applications of Spiral Heat Exchanger

Authors(2) :-R. W. Tapre, Dr. Jayant P. Kaware

Energy saving is major matter in our global world, and heat exchanger is very useful for energy saving. Of course heat exchanger is most significant component for chemical reaction, distillation, dissolution, crystallization, fermentation etc. So the correct selection of heat exchanger is important in these processes. Spiral heat exchangers are known as excellent heat exchanger because of far compact and high heat transfer efficiency. This paper discusses about the applications of spiral tube heat exchanger.
