[J. M. Lanjewar,Mr. S. A. Borikar] Volume 1: Issue 3, July 2014
Abstract:-Energy saving plays a important role in industrial development as well as reducing environmental impact.The necessity of energy saving is growing because of the current energy prices. Reducing energy cost can be achieved by producing more efficient equipments. Heat exchangers are the most important components in the refrigeration, automotives, chemical and process industries.So there is a need for the cost effective, more efficient and compact heat exchanger in the industrial market.In passive heat transfer enhancement strategy the use of inserts in channel is commonly used. Considering the increase in energy demand, effective heat transfer enhancement techniques have become important task . The present paper is a review of different types of inserts and its arrangement. According to recent studies inserts are known to be economic heat transfer augmentation tools.
