We show in this article that the common method of specifying ∆Tmin for individual heat exchangers may lead to wrong decisions and should be used with care when designing heat exchanger systems. In particular, design with constraints on∆Tmin may result in operation conditions that are not optimal when the resulting areas are installed. In addition, different… CONTINUE READING
