Design software packages use incremental models to correlate the performance of heat exchanger geometry and fluid heat release curves; however, the heat exchanger thermal efficiency is often lost in the process. Thermal efficiency enables designers to select appropriate heat exchanger geometries with respect to heat release curves. It also helps them identify plant "bottleneck" exchangers, indicating the replacement bundle configurations that could yield the highest performance improvement. This webinar explores the thermal efficiency of various shell-and-tube geometries and provides methods to determine and increase thermal efficiency for specific cases.
