Oh my goodness.

That's just a tiny bit out of scale for about 99.999% of home brewers. You might have better luck posing your question here...

Cheers!

What do you want to use the heat exchanger for? As above mentioned this is outside of the "normal" homebrewing size. Are you homebrewing or comercial brewing or something else completely?

The exchanger in the pic is about the size of some of the smaller ones we have at work.

Not sure what you're wanting to know OP. where I work they have Tranter heat exchangers. They seem quite dependable to me, though I'm hardly an expert. They're in use pretty much 24/7. They're extremely heavy duty. Is this for brewing or something else?

Hi Buddy,

There are four primary classifications of heat exchangers according to their flow arrangement. In parallel-flow heat exchangers, the two fluids enter the exchanger at the same end, and travel in parallel to one another to the other side. In counter-flow heat exchangers the fluids enter the exchanger from opposite ends. The counter current design is the most efficient, in that it can transfer the most heat from the heat (transfer) medium due to the fact that the average temperature difference along any unit length is greater. See countercurrent exchange. In a cross-flow heat exchanger, the fluids travel roughly perpendicular to one another through the exchanger.
For efficiency, heat exchangers are designed to maximize the surface area of the wall between the two fluids, while minimizing resistance to fluid flow through the exchanger. The exchanger's performance can also be affected by the addition of fins or corrugations in one or both directions, which increase surface area and may channel fluid flow or induce turbulence.
The driving temperature across the heat transfer surface varies with position, but an appropriate mean temperature can be defined. In most simple systems this is the "log mean temperature difference" (LMTD). Sometimes direct knowledge of the LMTD is not available and the NTU method is used.


Thanks.
