The literature on heat exchangers is very wide because of numerous existing configurations, several types of fluids used, as well as the variety of applications. On the other hand, when we need to calculate a heat exchanger, a similar procedure is hardly found. Therefore, we propose this educational work in order to facilitate the calculation procedures, when the student or the professional in the area needs a script for its design. The heat exchanger is installed in the Laboratory of Thermal Systems and Biodiesel at UNIMAR - University of Marilia - SP. In the theoretical simulation we used the EES Software. The results for the turbulent regime were as expected , while the values obtained for the laminar regime will be analyzed afterwards.
