Design and Analysis of S-Glass Heat Exchanger

Dhanraj Sampat Kakade, Aniket Dilip Borde, Chintan Dattatray Chougule, Prathamesh Sandeep Chindarkar, Madan Jagtap


This paper focuses on the composite material named S-Glass fibre Heat Exchanger. Since the existing design of heat exchangers are generally made up of metals which produce a critical amount of heat loss to the surrounding from the shell. These are also less corrosive resistant, have low life and high weight. To overcome these drawbacks, use of composite materials has become essential. There is a need to redesign using composite materials which are lightweight, high strength material and more corrosion resistant
