- The research and development situations of LNG plate-fin heat exchanger (LPFHE) were discussed in view of heat exchange in LNG field in petrol-chemical industry. The basic designing methods and the multi-stream heat exchange processes were illustrated by the cryogenic and high pressure cross heat exchange equipments of LPFHE with multi-stream and multiphase flow, including Five-stream LPFHE in first stage, Four-stream LPFHE in second stage, Three-stream LPFHE in third stage, Multi-stream main LPFHE etc. A series of LPFHE with different mixed refrigerants and different applications were described. The plate arranging structure characteristics and the working principles of the plate bundles were elaborated to give references for the scientific design and calculation of LPFHE in cryogenic field. The major research directions and the critical scientific problems were forecasted.
