Examples of how to reduce the size of an exchanger follow in this chapter. The ideas given are, for the most part, application-specific. Most of the recommendations depend on the skills of the heat transfer engineer. If the user desires any construction or feature identified, the requirement should be in the exchanger specifications. This is the best way of advising the rating engineer of what is needed. Otherwise, the selection made may not be to your liking.
