Heat transfer is one of the most important thing to be considered in thermal industry. There are several type of heat exchangers available for heat transferring purposes. But scientists are involved in finding new methodologies which would further increase the heat transfer rate and the effectiveness of heat transfer by conducting several experiments. Many researchers have found the different methodologies for increasing the heat transfer rate with the application of various research. In this paper we have proposed a new methodology for the heat exchanger in various aspects. In this paper we have proposed a new concept which can be uses in shell and tube heat exchangers. Here we have considered the angle of the heat exchanger to know whether the heat transfer rate increases or decreases with increase in inclination angles of the exchanger. Here we have used the heat exchanger in various angles from 0` to 90` to find at which angle the heat transfer rate is maximum. The experimental analysis shows the heat transfer rate is maximum at 45` and it increases further with increase in the mass flow rate of both the fluids. In this proposal we used water as both hot and cold fluid with varying mass flow rates of the liquids.
