Heat exchangers are devices that provide the exchange of heat between two same or different fluids that are at different temperature without mixing them with each other. Plate heat exchanger is one such compact heat exchanger, provides more heat transfer between two fluids in comparison with shell and tube heat exchanger. This study is focused on use of corrugated plate heat exchanger (PHE) for water sea water and oil as working fluid. This research work deals with experimental investigation of corrugated type of PHE with evaluation of convective heat transfer coefficient, overall heat transfer coefficient, area, and LMTD and exchanger effectiveness. Heat exchanger for carrying out this work consists of thin metal gaskated plates of stainless steel with 0.5 mm thickness, plates with rectangular geometry and corrugations on plate surface with chevron angle 450/450, with 6 numbers of plates. Tests are conducted by varying operating parameters like, inlet temperatures of hot water and different types of fluids with mass flow rate of cold water as constant parameter. The main objective of this work is to find out effects of these parameters on performance of heat exchangers with counter flow arrangements.
