Heat exchangers can be found in various places and are popular in areas that require buildings, engines or machines to be kept cool. Therefore they are ideally used in refrigeration and air conditioning units for commercial and domestic purposes.

Types Of Heat Exchangers
Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers
These have one fluid that flows through a set of metal tubes while the second fluid passes through a sealed shell that surrounds them. The two fluids can flow in the same direction (known as parallel flow), in opposite directions (counterflow or counter-current), or at right angles (cross flow). These can be easily serviced and maintained.
Plate Heat Exchangers
Similar to shell and tubes they work by using a series of stacked plate as a result this exchanges more heat more quickly. They are usually brazed or gasketed depending on the application and fluids being used. As they are made with stainless steel they most suitable for refrigerators or in food and beverage processing.
