In thermal industry, heat exchanger is very important device. The heat exchangers are used in number of applications. Heat exchangers are devices that facilitate the exchange of heat between two fluids that are at different temperatures while keeping them away from mixing with each other. As heat exchangers are used in many applications, the efficient heat exchangers have tremendous demand from industry. From last few years, efforts have been done to enhance heat transfer, increase rate of heat transfer, minimize size of heat exchangers, and finally increase energy and fuel efficiencies. The researchers are using different inserts, fins, fin shapes, insulations to ensure efficient and enhanced heat transfer.
