The subjects in this chapter could be deemed good design practice. Most but not all process and power plant heat exchanger specifications contain requirements related to the topics covered. When requirements are not specified—a common occurrence in commercial units—manufacturers should make selections in general agreement with the limitations found in this chapter. Some causes of trouble include too high a water velocity (pitting), geometry (won't fit in available space), use of too much water (existing piping cannot carry the quantity needed), high air velocity (blowing condensate off coil), and stacking (assuring seals do not leak) to name a few....

17.2 Water Velocity Limits
17.3 Noise
17.4 Stacking Units
17.5 Conserving Energy
17.6 Dimensional Limits
17.7 Liquid Flow across Fins
