The shell and tube type heat exchanger is a non-fired pressure system consisting of two different pressure chambers such as shell chamber and tube chamber. It is separated by the internal tube wall, two media flow past each other with such alignment that, if there is a heat difference, they will mutually exchange heat without mixing in the process..While there is an enormous variety of specific design features that can be used in shell and tube exchangers, the number of basic components is

This paper aims at performing a comprehensive comparison of the design outputs by IBR and ASME codes of critical components of a shell and tube type heat exchanger in an attempt to show the redundancy in designing the components using both these codes simultaneously.
