Objective: To demonstrate indirect heating or cooling by transfer of heat from one fluid stream to another when separated by a solid wall (fluid to fluid heat transfer).

Equipment required: HT30XC Heat Exchanger Service Unit, HT33 Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger.

Theory/background: Any temperature difference across the metal plates will result in the transfer of heat between the two fluid streams. The hot water flowing through the inner tube bundle will be cooled and the cold water flowing through the outer shell will be heated.
