A heat exchanger is a device that allows heat from a fluid (a liquid or a gas) to pass to a second fluid (another liquid or gas) without the two fluids having to mix together or come into direct contact. Shell and tube heat exchangers consist of series of tubes. One set of these tubes contains the fluid that must be either heated or cooled.
The second fluid runs over the tubes that are being heated or cooled so that it can either provide the heat or absorb the heat required. A set of tubes is called the tube bundle and can be made up of several types of tubes: plain, longitudinally finned, etc. Shell and tube heat exchangers are typically used for high-pressure applications (with pressures greater than 30 bar and temperatures greater than 260 °C.
Heat exchangers are widely used in industry both for cooling and heating large scale industrial processes. Heat exchangers are used in many industries includes waste water treatment, refrigeration, petroleum refining etc.
