Basic heat transfer relationships is apply to Air-Cooled Heat Exchanger (ACHE) . The fundamental heat transfer equation :

Q = U. A. LMTD.F
U = overall heat transfer coefficient
A = Heat transfer area
LMTD = Log mean temperature difference
F = Correction factor

Typical heat transfer coefficient for Air-Cooled Heat Exchangers

A heat exchanger transfers thermal energy from a hot-flowing substance to a cold-flowing substance. It using to estimate the needed heat transfer area, based on an estimate of the overall heat transfer coefficient. They are quickly dissipating heat into the air that was built up at another location. Thanks a lot...

Hello! There are many types of Heat Exchangers already out there in the market today. Most of them are used in our everyday devices whilst some of them play a more specific part in machines that are used in heavy industries and other businesses. Thank you for this post ;)...
