polymer compact heat exchanger are generally used for processes involving low pressures and corrosive fluid (gas or liquid). Due to low surface energy and smooth surface construction materials reduce the diposits stickability. Their clean heat transfer coefficient are comparatively low therefore least impacted due to fouling compare to the metalic heat exchangers.
