Reasons For Selecting a Particular Heat Exchanger
A heat exchanger is a piece of equipment that continually transfers heat from one medium to another in order to carry process energy. Food grade applications use indirect heat exchangers, those where both media are separated by a wall through which heat is transferred.

The natural laws of physics always allow the driving energy in a system to flow until equilibrium is reached. As long as there is a temperature difference, heat leaves the hottest fluid and will be transferred to the colder fluid.

A heat exchanger used this principle in its endeavour to reach it's desired result.

The theory of heat transfer from one media to another, or from one fluid to another, is determined by several basic rules.
  1. Heat will always be transferred from a hot product to a cold product.
  2. There must always be a temperature difference between the products.
  3. The heat lost by the hot product is equal to the amount of heat gained by the cold product, except for energy losses to the surrounding area.
