Baffles in heat exchangers are often used as a core element in any shell and tube heat exchanger design. This short article will discuss the use of baffles and some common guidelines on their usage in heat exchangers.
Do you have some questions about tube pitch in heat exchangers! why not read this article
How to calculate the Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient? Heat exchanger setup typically involves two flowing fluids separated by a solid wall. Heat is first transferred from the hot fluid to the wall by convection, the heat is then transferred through the wall by conduction, and lastly the heat is transferred […]
Definition Compact heat exchanger can be characterized by its high ‘area density’ this means that is has a high ratio of heat transfer surface to heat exchanger volume. So Compact heat exchange is characterized by high heat transfer surface-area to volume ratios and high heat transfer coefficients compared to other […]
This short articles describes how to find how many shells needed in series that would be sufficient to perform the duty required.
What is a heat exchanger? A device to exchange the thermal energy between two or more fluids at different temperatures. In simple terms; if you want to use a hot fluid to heat up a colder one you can use a heat exchanger to do the job. Heat exchangers are […]
Shell and Tube heat exchanger uses Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers are the most commonly used in the chemical processing industries today. It possesses large surface areas for heat transfer and is capable of operating at high temperatures and pressures. Shell and tube heat exchangers are frequently selected for applications […]
What is a Plate Heat Exchanger? Plate heat exchangers are essentially a number of pressed metal plates, aligned on a frame clamped together with gaskets between the plates. Each pressed plate is corrugated, having a number of alternating ridges and grooves. The pattern and geometry of the corrugations are a […]
Quick description What is a double pipe heat exchanger? Double pipe heat exchanger is perhaps the simplest of all heat exchanger types. Double pipe heat exchangers are also known as hairpin, jacketed pipe, jacketed U-tube and concentric pipe. These styles of double pipe may have a bundle of inner tubes rather […]
