Double pipe heat exchanger is simplest type’s concentric pipes of different diameter. In this paper parallel and counter both flow arrangements will do. Selecting different materials copper, aluminum and steel for heat exchangers and producing tubes of heat exchangers have been studied and the discus effects of thermal conductivity on them. Operations on the different tubes with different materials are having the same dimensions (diameter and length) and the factors affecting heat exchangers. Further, selection of the most appropriate tube material and obtained with regard results to these factors. By analysis and experimentation of systematic data degradation leads to the conclusion that the maximum heat transfer rates is obtained in case of the inward counter flow configuration compared to all other factors, except these we observe to vary with small difference in each section. Comparing of these three tube heat exchangers, effectiveness is more for copper tube heat exchanger ie., it can carry out more heat from inner hot fluid to outer cold fluid. The correlations of Nusselt number, Reynolds number and Prandtl number will be determined through multivariate linear normal regression.
