The serpentine tube in tube arrangement is very effective for various applications such as heat exchangers and chemical reactors. The serpentine tube in tube arrangement can provide large heat transfer area occupying lesser space with high heat transfer coefficients. The heat exchanger geometry contains one serpentine tube of outer diameter 30 mm and shell of diameter 200 mm, shape of tube is serpentine and heat exchanger is analyzed by using nano fluids CuO/water and Al2O3/water. ANSYS CFX solver has been used for CFD analysis using the CAD model developed in Creo 2 software. The changes in temperature profiles in each of the cases are taken into consideration for calculating effectiveness of heat exchanger. The turbulence model used for CFD analysis is k-epsilon.
