Waste heat recovery is very important, because not only it reduces the expenditure of heat generation, but also it is of high priority in environmental consideration, such as reduction in greenhouse gases. One of the devices is used in waste heat recovery is thermosyphon heat exchanger (THE). In this paper, theoretical research has been carried out to investigate the thermal performance of an air to air thermosyphon heat exchanger. This purpose is done by solving simultaneous principles equations. It was found that with implementation of targeted subsides plan in Islamic Republic of Iran, saving in gas oil consumption is very considerable by using this device.
