In the current work, attempt for enhancing the heat exchanger of the shell and tube by analyzing the various parameters. The heat exchanger is a device used to transfer heat between at least two fluids. In the different kinds of heat exchangers utilized in various industries, shell and tube heat exchangers are presumably the most adaptable and widely heat exchangers utilized in most industrial areas. Based on the relationship between different parameters such as tube velocity, overall heat transfer coefficient, mass flow rate, and pumping power, analysis is carried out. Results show that the tube velocity increases the overall heat transfer coefficient, total pressure drop and mass flow rate of water, Pumping Power, up to the certain limit and starts to decrease. So that the parameters can be optimized by conducting the experiments based on different input parameters. The parameters which influence the optimal result are researched and recommended.
