How It Works

The heat exchanger works by allowing two fluids (liquid or gas) to exchange heat without mixing. Fluid A passes through one set of channels created by the plates, while fluid B passes through another set of channels. The fluids come into contact with each other through the plates, and heat is transferred from the hot fluid to the cold fluid.
