Abstract
In recent days, the process industries have been trying a lot to reduce the loss caused due to dissipation of waste heat. The tremendous effort in finding solutions to use the thermal energy from waste heat and other sources had resulted in optimizing the heat exchangers. These heat exchangers may be optimized in the field of materials, flow configurations and design. This becomes a thrust area with huge potential as it is one of the ecodesign model. The concept of these heat exchangers could be extented to the fileds of the refrigeration and air conditioning system also. One of the problems faced in the process of these heat exchangers is the yielding of low heat transfer efficiency. An effort has been made in this paper to review the literature related to the heat exchangers and heat transfer enhancement techniques to improve the efficiencies of heat exhangers.
