Heat exchangers are more often than not used equipments in the process industries. All most all process industries use heat exchangers for cooling, heating, condensation or boiling purpose. A heat exchanger is simply a device or a mechanical device which is designed expeditiously in order to transfer or exchange heat from one substance to another. If two fluids are alleged at altered temperatures heat exchangers are used to exchange the heat between them. In this paper efforts have been made to design a heat exchanger by modelling in ANSYS software which is having a inner diameter of 330mm and outer diameter of 350mm for shell. Similarly for tube inner diameter is 21.18mm and outer diameter 25.4mm, length of tube is 1500mm, contains 36 tubes. Here assembly of shell and tube are done with water and steam as a medium. By using results the design can be altered for better efficiency. Realizable k–ε (RKE) model plies first-rate results.
