Heat exchanger is an important component in industrial systems especially in process industries. Many commercial designs and types of heat exchangers are available in market for transfer of heat as well as for recovery of waste heat for the process plants. As helical coil have compact size and higher heat transfer coefficient they are widely used in industrial applications such as food preservation, refrigeration, process plant, power generation, etc. An attempt has been made to study the parallel flow and counter flow of inner higher temperature fluid flow and lower temperature fluid flow, which are separated by copper surface in a helical coil heat exchanger. Helical geometry allows the effective handling at higher temperatures and extreme temperature differentials without any highly induced stress or expansion of joints. These heat exchanger consists of series of stacked helical coiled tubes and the tube ends are connected by manifolds, which also acts as fluid entry and exit locations. In this paper, we focus on design parameters and heat transfer conditions of a vaporizer or generator of a simple vapour absorption refrigeration system having flow condition of refrigerant taken as laminar flow.
