Abstract: In this investigation of multi heat pipe induced in heat exchanger shows the developments in heat transfer is to improve the efficiency of heat exchangers. Water is used as a heat transfer fluid and acetone is used as a working fluid. Rotameter is set to measure the flow rate of cold water and hot water. To maintain the parameter as experimental setup. Then set the mass flow rate of hot water as 40 LPH, 60LPH, 80 LPH, 100LPH, 120 LPH and mass flow rate of cold water as 20 LPH, 30 LPH, 40 LPH, 50 LPH, and 60 LPH. Then 40 ºC, 45 ºC, 50 ºC, 55 ºC, 60 ºC are the temperatures of hot water at inlet are maintained. To find some various physical parameters of Qc , hc , Re , Pr , Rth. The maximum effectiveness of the investigation obtained from condition of Thi 60 ºC, Tci 32 ºC and 100 LPH mhi, 60 LPH mci the maximum effectiveness attained as 57.25%. Then the mhi as 100 LPH, mci as 60 LPH and Thi at 40 ºC as 37.6%. It shows the effectiveness get increased about 34.3 to the maximum conditions.

Keywords: Multi Heat Pipe, Heat Exchanger, Mass Flow Rates, Temperature of Hot Water, Heat Transfer Rate, Effectiveness.
