Heat exchangers are predominantly used in the industries of production, manufacturing, power, oil and gas, petroleum, and cooling solutions. The competence of the heat exchanger is optimized through active and passive augmented techniques. The current study revolves around the performance evaluation of Novel Para winglet tape for flow and friction characteristics. Turbulence flow properties from Re of 30,000-to-6000 were explored for three different inclinations and pitches. Experimental and numerical solutions are derived to showcase the flow behavior over Para winglet tape inserts in the double pipe heat exchanger. Appreciable results were obtained in enhancing the Nusselt number (Nup) for better heat transfer enforcement through the DEX. All case studies also increased when compared to the smooth pipe. Experimentally, the maximum Nu and Nusselt number ratio was observed to be 398.23 and 5.05 times over the plain tube. Similarly, the maximum friction factor and its ratio were observed to be near 0.33 and 8.89 times over the plain tube. Finally, the maximum POI of 2.68 to 2.37 was achieved with 20° inclinations. The experimental and numerical outcomes of Para winglet tape with the higher inclination and shorter pitch were found to be best out of the others.
