This accessible book presents unconventional technologies in heat exchanger design that have the capacity to provide solutions to major concerns within the process and power-generating industries. Demonstrating the advantages and limits of these innovative heat exchangers, it also discusses micro- and nanostructure surfaces and micro-scale equipment, and introduces pillow-plate, helical and expanded metal baffle concepts. It offers step-by-step worked examples, which provide instructions for developing an initial configuration and are supported by clear, detailed drawings and pictures.

Various types of heat exchangers are available, and they are widely used in all fields of industry for cooling or heating purposes, including in combustion engines. The market in 2012 was estimated to be U$ 42.7 billion and the global demand for heat exchangers is experiencing an annual growth of about 7.8 %. The market value is expected to reach U$ 57.9 billion in 2016, and approach U$ 78.16 billion in 2020.

Providing a valuable introduction to students and researchers, this book offers clear and concise information to thermal engineers, mechanical engineers, process engineers and heat exchanger specialists.

About the author (2019)

Since 1994 Prof. Hans-Jörg Bart has been the Chair of Separation Science and Technology at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, Germany. Prior to this he was head of the Christian Doppler Laboratory of Modelling Reactive Systems in Process Engineering at the University of Technology, Graz, Austria. He has over 30 years of experience in heat and mass transfer in basic unit operations and two-phase flow simulations. His special research interest is the design and operation of polymeric heat exchangers as an interesting niche technology. He has published more than 300 scientific papers in peer-reviewed international journals and has edited and contributed to several books and book chapters. Dr. Stephan Scholl has been a professor of chemical and thermal process engineering and director of the relevant institute at the Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany. From 1991 to 2002 he worked as an R&D engineer, logistics consultant and senior research manager at BASF AG, Ludwigshafen, Germany. He has over 23 years of industrial as well as academic experience in heat transfer with an emphasis on evaporation, distillation, equipment design as well as fouling and cleaning. His research interests include the design of sustainable processes with a focus on recycling strategies as well as ecological assessment of the related processes. He has contributed to several monographs on these topics and has published more than 120 scientific papers in peer-reviewed international journals.
