Heat exchangers can also be classified by their design and construction. There are four basic designs. One, tubular. Two, plate. Three, extended surface. And four, regenerative. A tubular heat exchanger consists of a set of tubes, the tube bundle typically contained within a shell. Thus, the name Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger. The tubes contain one fluid and the second fluid runs over or around the tubes, to either supply heat to or remove heat from the tube surfaces.
