What is difference between condenser and heat exchanger?

A heat exchanger is a device that transfers heat from one fluid to the others. A condenser is simply a heat exchanger. It compresses refrigerants into a hot gas to then condense them into a liquid. Majorly condenser is used to cool the required vapor and heat exchanger is used to heat the required liquid.

Difference between heat rejection and heat absoarb in refrigerator?

Heat is absorbed by the refrigerant liquid inside the fridge, and rejected by the heat exchanger on the back of it.

Heat exchanger for ammonia absorption refrigeration system?

there are two type of heat exchanger in absorption refrigeration, first is liquid heat exchanger and other is gas heat exchanger.both heat exchanger function is same, to transfer heat (hot medium to cold medium) without violate second newton law of thermodynamics. liquids heat exchanger is between boiler and absorber vessel mean while gas heat exchanger between evaporator and absorber.

What is the difference between double pipe heat exchanger and shell and tube heat exchanger?

double pipe heat exchanger is made if two concentric tubes one carrying cold flow and the other one carrying hot flow. but shell and tube hear exchangers are made of a shell like a vessel filled with many thin tubes to transfer heat between fluids. there are more data available at :

Why you we use log mean temperature difference formula?

The use of the LMTD arises straightforwardly from the analysis of a heat exchanger with constant flow rate and fluid thermal properties. It is a simple method to approximated the temperature diving force in a heat exchanger. The LMTD is a logarithmic average of the temperature difference between the hot and cold streams at each end of the exchanger. The larger the LMTD, the more heat is transferred.

What is the difference between surface condenser and overhead condenser?

Surface condenser is a heat exchanger in which latent heat only absorbed by the cooling media and heat exchange mostly takes place on availble just surface of the tube bundle. Overhead condenses is also a heat exchanger in which latent heat and somewhat sensible heat also removed from the fluid
