Revolutionary Breakthrough: Heat Exchanger Technology Transforms Energy Efficiency
A Heat Exchanger is a tool that makes it easier for two fluids with differing temperatures to exchange heat. Heat exchangers are utilised in a wide range of engineering applications, including waste heat recovery units, power plants, chemical processing systems, heating and air conditioning systems, and food processing systems. A few other examples of heat exchangers include air preheaters, economizers, evaporators, superheaters, condensers, and cooling towers used in power plants.
Furthermore, the use of supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) as the working fluid in a closed, recuperated Brayton cycle employing Heat Exchanger is an efficient power production system. The efficiency and size of the system as a whole are affected by the heat exchangers. To accomplish the required trade-off between system efficiency and system size, heat exchanger designs must strike a balance between heat exchanger efficacy and pressure drop. With each energy conversion system application, a different trade-off between system efficiency and system size is anticipated.
