Compact Heat Exchanger
A type of heat exchanger which is specifically
designed to realize the larger heat transfer area
per unit volume.
A heat exchanger with >700m

COMPARANCE WITH SHELL
TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER:
They occupy 80% less space as compared
shell and tube heat exchanger.
Overall Heat transfer coefficient is three or
four times higher as compared to shall and
tube heat exchanger.
Low pressure and low temperature devices.
