“What is the most popular type of heat exchanger?”

 

Let’s think of a design for a simple heat exchanger. First, let’s take a bundle of tubes and put it into a shell. Then, let’s run one fluid through the tubes and another around the tubes, both at different temperatures. Over time, the heat from the hotter one to the colder one. This setup is known as a shell and tube heat exchanger. Shell and tube heat exchangers come in two varieties, single phase (which have the fluids in only one phase) and multiphase (which uses both gases and liquids simultaneously). Because of their simple construction, shell and tube heat exchanger have become the most popular in the world.
