Heat transfer has been examined in a polymer film compact heat exchanger between cross flowing liquid and gas. Condensation of water vapour through a non-condensable gas was used to supply heat through a corrugated poly-ether-ether-ketone (PEEK) film to a cooling liquid. Measurements of heat transfer rates in the system indicated overall heat transfer coefficients in the range of 50-300 W m(-2) K-1 were achieved. Visual analysis and pressure drop measurements were used to provide insight into the fluid flow and the models used for heat transfer. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
