The design of a heat exchanger is very effective to reduce total production costs, compared to buying a ready-made exchanger. This study aims to design a heat exchanger with a manual calculation analysis method to get dimension calculations of the heat exchanger. Dimension calculation of heat exchanger aims to determine the quality of the heat exchanger based on the overall heat transfer coefficient and the dirt factor that occurs in the heat exchanger. The heat exchanger design is a shell and tube type heat exchanger 1 (one) pass shell and 2 (two) pass tubes using water as hot fluid and cold fluid. The fluid flow is assumed to be the opposite. The results show the effectiveness of the heat exchanger reaches more than 50%. The performance of the heat exchanger designed is relatively good but the heat exchanger designed still does not meet the minimum requirements of the established dirt factor. It is hoped that this research can be useful as a learning method regarding the design process, working mechanism, and heat exchanger performance
