In this study, a method for evaluation of pressure drop of air cooler heat exchangers was developed which is based on the maximum pressure drop value. Due to the procedure used in full pressure drop absorption, the heat exchanger designed in this study are smaller than most common procedures which leads to lower capital investment of heat exchangers. It was concluded that the proposed procedure can be successfully used in high efficiency enhanced heat exchangers, where tube inserts are employed as the enhancement element
