Experiments  to  measure and compare the convection  heat  transfer coefficient  in gasket  plate  heat  exchangers  were  performed  with stainless steel plates and copper  coated  stainless steel  plates. Gasket  plate  heat  exchangers  with  corrugated  structure was  used  to increase  the  heat  transfer rate  by  increased  exposure area and  reduce fouling  by creating  turbulence flow  between  the plates.  Here the thermal  conductivity  of copper is  considered  as  a main  concept  to  increase  the heat  transfer rate. By combining the effect of copper and corrugated structure, efficient heat transfer rate can be achieved in copper coated stainless steel plate when compared to stainless steel plate alone.
