Direct-contact heat transfer processes between fluid streams are reviewed for situations that may be found in process technologies. While not all of the past work could be referenced in the space available, many current and review articles are cited that provide sources of detailed information. Included in this review are topics that relate to direct contact evaporation, condensation, and boiling as well as simple sensible heat transfer between the fluid streams.
