Abstract: Thermal behaviour of a multi-heat pipe induced in compact heat exchanger has been analysed with the influence of baffles. The heat transfer fluid and working fluid used for the investigation are water and acetone. In this investigation, baffles are used to improve performance. In this research, different parameters like temperature range of hot and cold water were 50ºC, 60ºC, 70ºC and 32ºC throughout the analysis. The mass flow rates of hot and cold water ranges as 40 LPH to 120 LPH and 20 LPH to 60 LPH with an increase of 20 LPH and 10 LPH. The result shows that for an optimum revealed conditions of an angle of 0º with 60ºC and 100 LPH there is an increase in effectiveness occurs as 82.05% while comparing to without baffled conditions.
