The present experimental study is carried out to verify previously published heat transfer results attained using a simpler yet nascent data reduction technique for the same plate heat exchanger. A gasketed, commercially available plate heat exchanger with mixed (30/60) plate configuration was used in this study to obtain experimental heat transfer coefficient using modified Wilson plot method for data reduction. The comparison between current data and previously published results has shown excellent agreement between the two techniques hence verifying the results of the simpler method used earlier.
