Heat exchanger degradation is a non- periodic non stationary process, which depends upon the variation of parameters w.r.t time. The measurements are associated with gross errors, if they are not properly handled, they may lead to erroneous estimation and prediction of heat exchanger performance. The objective of this paper is to predict the life of the heat exchanger while reaching to its threshold limit by the output factors like cleanliness factor and fouling factor. The performance factor of heat exchangers degrades with time due to scaling or fouling factor. In this paper we have monitored, predict the working life of the heat exchanger performance
