Heat recovery is the capture of energy contained in fluids otherwise that would be lost from a facility. Heat sources may include heat pumps, chillers, steam condensate lines, hot flue gases from boiler, hot air associated with kitchen and laundry facilities, exhaust gases of the engines, power-generation equipment. Helical coil heat exchanger is one of the devices which are used for the heat recovery system. A heat exchanger is a device used to transfer heat between two or more fluids with different temperatures for various application including power plants, nuclear reactors, refrigeration & air condition system, automotive industries, heat recovery system, chemical processing and food industries. Common examples of heat exchangers in everyday use are air pre-heaters and conditioners, automobile radiators, condensers, evaporators, and coolers In present paper analysis of counter flow heat exchanger is done and then variations of various dimensionless numbers i.e. Reynolds Number, Nusselt’s Number and Dean’s number are studied.
