Does the Reynolds number criteria of 2300 tell if the flow regime is turbulent or not?

No, Turbulence can be achieved at much lesser reynolds number. For micro-fluidic systems literature proof exists confirming that turbulence can be achieved at reynolds number as low as 200-300

Where would you put a corrosive fluid in a double pipe heat exchanger and why? What are the different types of pitches used?

The corrosive fluid is placed in the tube side as it would then corrode only the tube side, which can later be replaced compared to higher costs when putting it in the outer pipe. The different types of packings are majorly: 1) Triangular 2) Square
