Heat exchangers help in the efficient transfer of heat from one medium to another. Heat exchangers are widely used in space heating, refrigeration, air-conditioning, in power and chemical plants, in petroleum refineries and for sewage treatment. The most common application of a heat exchanger is the radiator in a car where the hot fluid in the radiator is cooled by the flow of air over the radiator surface.
