It consists of two parallel tubes filled with cold fluid running. Inside each tube there is another pipe, smaller in diameter, filled with the heated fluid, thereby producing heat transfer. The advantage of this exchanger is its simple design.
The exchanger is arranged in two halves, and has incorporated thermocouples at midpoints, so as to significantly improve the learning outcome, because the change in temperature over the heat exchanger is clearly visible.
This exchanger can operate with co-current or countercurrent flows.
