What are heat exchangers for?
q Heat exchangers are practical devices used to transfer
energy from one fluid to another
q To get fluid streams to the right temperature for the next
process
– reactions often require feeds at high temp.
q To condense vapours
q To evaporate liquids
q To recover heat to use elsewhere
q To reject low-grade heat
q To drive a power cycle

Recuperators/Regenerators
qq Recuperative: Recuperative:
Has separate flow paths for each fluid
which flow simultaneously through the
exchanger transferring heat between
the streams
qq Regenerative Regenerative
Has a single flow path which the hot
and cold fluids alternately pass
through.
