heat exchangers market

What is the Global Heat Exchangers Market?

A heat exchanger is a system used to transfer heat between a source and a working fluid. Heat exchangers are used in both cooling and heating processes. The fluids may be separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing or they may be in direct contact.

Heat exchangers are designed to maximize the surface area of the wall between the two fluids while minimizing resistance to fluid flow through the exchangers. The exchanger’s performance can also be affected by the addition of fins or corrugations in one or both directions, which increases surface area and may channel fluid flow or incidence turbulence.

Heat exchangers are widely used in industry for cooling and heating large-scale industrial processes. The type and size of heat exchanger used can be tailored to suit a process depending on the type of fluid, its phase, temperature, density, viscosity, pressure, chemical composition, and various other thermodynamic properties.

In many industrial processes, there is a waste of energy or a heat stream that is being exhausted, heat exchangers can be used to recover this heat and put it to use by heating a different stream in the process. This practice saves a lot of money in the industry, as the heat supplied to other streams from the heat exchangers would otherwise come from an external source that is more expensive and more harmful to the environment.

With an expanding desire for environmentally friendly options and increased development of offices, retail sectors, and public buildings, market expansion is due to grow the heat exchangers market. The design and manufacturing of heat exchangers have numerous regulations, which vary according to the region in which they will be used.
