This chapter aims to provide information on classification, types, design methodology, and selection of heat exchangers (HEX), focusing on plate HEX. The details of a software developed based on correlations obtained using experimental data are presented. Plate HEX literature is explained in detail and the correlations in literature are used in the developed HEX selection software for comparison with the new correlations. The analysis shows that specific correlations based on experimental data are necessary to be used with plates utilized in HEX selection, since the plate geometries are unique and need specific correlations to reflect their properties correctly.
