    What is a Heat Exchanger?

    A Heat Exchanger is a device used to transfer heat from one medium to another. The media may be separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing or direct contact. They are used in various engineering applications, such as refrigeration, heating and air conditioning systems, power plants, chemical processing systems, food processing systems, automobile radiators, and waste heat recovery units.
