Heat pipe heat exchangers are typically made of finned pipes which transfer the heat between two fluids in counterflow: these fluids are completely separated. The effectiveness of these indirect type exchangers has been studied as a function of the classical parameters of heat transfer (NTU method). The temperature profiles of the heat exchanger, have been analyzed. A detailed comparison with the classical liquid coupled indirect type exchangers has been made for the first time.
