Benchtop Heat Exchanger

A heat exchanger is a device typically used to transfer heat (energy) between two fluids. These fluids are usually separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing.  We have double pipe, shell & tube, and plate & frame heat exchangers for our bench top experiments. Circulated hot water heats the cool tap water in the system.  The students perform energy balances and determine the heat transfer coefficients.
