Compact heat exchangers are available with a range of surface types generally intended to enhance surface density and heat transfer coefficients and which also assist mechanical design for example fins form many attachment points between adjacent parting sheets some. Historically the development and application of compact heat exchangers and their surfaces has taken place in a piecemeal fashion in a number of rather unrelated areas principally those of the automotive and prime mover aerospace cryogenic and refrigeration sectors. Compact heat exchangers selection design and operation second edition is fully revised to present the most recent and fundamental ideas and industrial concepts in compact heat exchanger technology this complete reference compiles all aspects of theory design rules operational issues and the most recent developments and technological . Compact heat exchangers is a compilation of experimental data on the basic heat transfer and flow friction characteristics of compact heat exchanger surfaces ie surfaces with the characteristic of large area per unit of volume used primarily in gas flow applications where large surface area is a necessity. Compact heat exchangers are used in a great variety of applications they allow for an increased heat transfer rate require less volume and weigh less compared to other heat exchanger types the disadvantage is the higher pressure drop
