Abstract: A heat exchanger is a device intensively used for enhancing the transfer of heat energy between two or more working fluids at different temperature, which are in thermal contact. The optimal design and efficient operation of heat exchanger and heat transfer network are of a great significance in any of the process industry. The heat transfer efficiency depends on both design of heat exchanger and property of working fluid. From various types of heat exchanger, the double stacked shell and tube heat exchanger with straight tube and single pass is to be under study. Here the redesign of heat exchanger takes place with the key objectives of optimizing the pressure drop, optimizing the heat transfer rate and reducing the saddle support weight used for cooling purpose in brewery application. The design calculations are carried out using the Kerns and Bell Delwar method and other important parameters dealing with material selection and geometries are also taken into consideration. FEA analysis for optimizing the saddle support weight is carried out using Dassault systeme’s Solidworks while the CFD analysis for optimizing pressure drop and heat transfer rate is carried out using Dassault systeme’s Solidworks analysis software and the design and working of Shell and tube heat exchanger is determined in terms of variables such as pressure ,temperature ,mass flow rate ,flow rate ,energy input output that are of particular interest in Shell and tube heat exchanger analysis.
