Household uses for heat exchangers

About this image
Solar hot water - A heat exchanger is used to transfer energy to the potable water from the fluid being heated in the solar collector


A heat exchanger is a device built for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another. The media may be separated by a solid wall, so that they never mix, or they may be in direct contact [1]. They are widely used in space heating, refrigeration, air conditioning, power plants, chemical plants, petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries, natural gas processing, and sewage treatment. One common example of a heat exchanger is the radiator in a car, in which the heat source, being a hot engine-cooling fluid, water, transfers heat to air flowing through the radiator (i.e. the heat transfer medium).

Education for Engineering for Sustainable Development


Tools and Software

  • The Open source engineering software page has many links to various open source software programs used in engineering.
  • Thingiverse is a website where people can share digital designs. It also provides a way to upload non-compliant files to be shared on Appropedia pages.
  • RepRap is an open source rapid prototyping system that is capable of producing its own parts and may be able to manufacture low cost heat exchangers
