This paper reports the results of visualization research involving a heat exchanger applied for waste heat recovery using of Digital Particle Image Velocimetry (DPIV) method. Five louver dampers configurations responsible for typical operation modes were tested. As a consequence, airflow maldistribution in the tube bundle section and bypass section were identified and described. Based on the measurements and analysis carried out, the authors have developed a way to implement design changes to optimize gas distribution inside the unit.
