In various industrial plants such as power generation plants, petrochemical plants, and unit factories, there is an increasing demand for a system that generates hot water using waste or surplus steam. Compact steam unit (CSU), which produces hot water by using steam, is a good solution considering energy reuse. In this study, as a basic study to develop a high-pressure CSU, heat transfer characteristics of a hybrid heat exchanger were investigated through experiments, in order to use the hybrid heat exchanger instead of a conventional plate heat exchanger as the core component of CSU. The experimental results are the followings. Heat balance between the hot side and cold side was satisfied within . Overall heat transfer coefficient increased linearly as the Reynolds number increased and exceeded when the flow velocity was above 0.5 m/s. In addition, pressure drop also increased as the Reynolds number increased, and pressure drop per unit length was below 50 kPa/m.
