In this project work the analyze of two different baffle in a Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger done by ANSYS FLUENT. Shell and tube heat exchanger has been widely used in many industrial applications such as electric power generation, Refrigeration and Environmental Protection and Chemical Engineering. Baffle is an shell side Component of shell and tube heat exchanger The segmental baffle forces the liquid in a Zigzag flow and improving heat transfer and a high pressure drop and increase the fouling resistance and Helical Baffle have a Effective Performance of increasing heat transfer performance. The desirable features of heat exchanger obtain a maximum heat transfer Coefficient and a lower pressure drop. From the Numerical Experimentation result the performance of heat exchanger is increased in Helical Baffle instead of Segmental Baffle
