In this exchanger, the cool fluid passes through a series of tubes grouped in parallel inside the shell, whereas the heated fluid goes through the whole vessel that encloses the tubes, thus resulting in heat transfer.
The advantage of this type of heat exchanger is its compact design and the possibility to work at higher pressures than other designs.
This exchanger can operate with co-current or countercurrent flows.
Balance of energies in the exchanger.
