What does the word " extract " mean here?

The amount of heat transferred to the tubes from the fluid running through them depends on the difference in temperature between the tube and the fluid touching it. So if the fluid that is in contact with the tube cools down quickly, less heat will be transferred. By creating turbulence inside the tube, all of the fluid mixes together, keeping the temperature of the fluid touching the tubes up so that more heat can be extracted, and all of the fluid inside the tube is used effectively.

It is still not clear to me. To extract more heat from the tube? Does it mean that the heat from the fluid is transferred to the tubes?

Hello. Sorry to be so long answering you.

Yes - the heat is transferred from the fluid to the metal tubes - then from the outside of the tube to the cool air.

'To extract' means 'to take from'.

The air takes heat away from the fluid.
Heat is extracted from the coolant fluid.
