Flower baffle heat exchanger’s structure and design idea is introduced. Flower baffle heat exchanger has unique support structure. It can both enhance the efficiency of the heat transfer and reduce the pressure drop. Through the experimental study, under the same shell side flow, the heat transfer coefficient K which the distance between two flower baffles is 134mm is higher 3%~9% than the one of which the distances between two flower baffles are 163mm,123mm. The heat transfer coefficient K which the distance between two flower baffles is 147mm is close to the one of which the distances between two flower baffles is 134mm. The shell volume flow V is higher, the incremental quantity of heat transfer coefficient K is more. The integrated performance K/Δp of flower baffle heat exchanger which the distance between two flower baffles is 134mm is higher 3%~9% than the one of which the distances between two flower baffles are 163mm,123mm. Therefore, the best distance between two flower baffles exists between 134mm~147mm this experiment.
