The basis of classification of HX is as follows:
Four major applications are in
Metallurgical n Manufacturing apps3.
Surface area density must be greater than 700 m
Multi-pass HXs are preferred in day-to-day life because in theseexchangers pressure drop will be so high and give higher heat transfer coefficient as compared to single pass and this is desired for the proper functioning and usage of exchangers.5.
LMTD is used as a driving force in the cases where temperaturedistribution is not uniform with respect to time. Thats why an average parameter is introduced to ease the complexity of the operation of HXs.Limitations of LMTD are:
LMTD should not be used when U changes appreciably or whenthe temperature difference is not a linear function of q.
It is also incorrect when heat is transferred to or from a reactingfluid in a jacketed reactor.6.
Selection of the material for the shell depends on namely,
Corrosiveness nature of the working fluid
Working temperature and pressure7.
