The determination of the optimum heat exchanger design for a specific, well defined application can be regarded as a two stage process. The first stage is concerned with the selection of the most appropriate heat exchanger type, for example, the choice of a shell and tube exchanger as opposed to a plate, rotating wheel, heat pipe, etc., etc.
Heat Transfer Research Inc. (HTRI), a global research and development consortium, organized the Exchanger Design Margins Task Force (EDMTF) in 2005 that focused on the need for a more effective.
The purpose of our research reported in this paper is to integrate plate heat exchangers in ORCs and to compare the result to that obtained with shell-and-tube heat exchangers. Martin developed a model for plate heat exchangers with single-phase ow. This model is based on physical reasoning and many ex- perimental data are used.
This paper presents a detailed heat and effectiveness analysis for a cross-flow heat exchanger for potential energy recovery application in hot-humid climate. It is found that for the present cross-flow arrangement, as the air velocity increases, the effectiveness decreases and transferred heat increases.
Heat exchanger An interchangeable plate heat exchanger Tubular heat exchanger. A heat exchanger is a piece of equipment built for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another. The media may be separated by a solid wall, so that they never mix, or they may be in direct contact.
A plate heat exchanger is a type of heat exchanger that uses metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids.This has a major advantage over a conventional heat exchanger in that the fluids are exposed to a much larger surface area because the fluids are spread out over the plates. This facilitates the transfer of heat, and greatly increases the speed of the temperature change.
For heat transfer, there are three sub-categories that stand out; conduction, convection and radiation. A mini research paper was assigned for each topic. The subject of each research paper included data taken in class from a simple heat transfer experiments. This greatly helped.
