Analytical and Experimental Studies of Compact Wire-Screen Heat Exchangers
A compact heat exchanger should possess high effectiveness while satisfying the condition of compactness with respect to its internal and/or external volumes. A compact heat exchanger consisting of a large number of randomly stacked wire-screen discs attached to the inside of a tube, referred to as a matrix heat exchanger (see Fig. 1), offers advantages of compactness, no leakage problems, and simplicity of construction.
