• Is My Design OK? The Challenges of High Effectiveness Exchangers

    June 14, 2018
    Temperature effectiveness is the change in process fluid stream temperature divided by the difference between the hottest and coldest temperatures in the exchanger. If the required effectiveness is greater than 0.8, non-ideal fabrication or variable process conditions can significantly reduce performance of many exchanger types (shell-and-tube, plate-frame, plate-fin, etc.).
