A thorough understanding of the basic modes of Heat Transfer is a fundamental requirement for most courses in Science and Engineering. The P.A.Hilton Ltd Heat Transfer range is designed to teach all the fundamental principles of Heat Transfer and Thermodynamics as well as units for more advanced studies.
Many of the ranges have a common instrumentation and service unit with a series of optional add-on modules available, designed for specific applications. This modular approach gives maximum flexibility to educational establishments to align their laboratory equipment to curriculum requirements and budgets.
Data Acquisition Upgrades are available for the vast majority of units within the Heat Transfer range, allowing the key experimental parameters to be captured using the Universal Data Acquisition software.
The demonstration of Boyle’s Law (pV = Constant) is one of the fundamental experiments for student chemists, physicists and engineers of all disciplines.
A bench mounted panel with integral electrical console providing services for any of the optional heat exchangers in the range. Temperature controlled hot water is provided and the hot and cold flow is controlled and measured using variable area flowmeters. The optional heat exchangers are connected using non-drip, self sealing couplings.
A clear acrylic tube containing cold water surrounds an inner stainless steel tube in which the hot water flows.
Multiple brazed stainless steel plates arranged for multi-pass operation with passes in series give a total heat transfer area of approximately 24000mm2. Four thermocouples measure hot and cold fluid entry and exit temperatures.
A thick walled glass shell with 2 baffles contains cold water, which passes over 7 stainless steel tubes through which hot water flows. Tube bundle length of 205mm giving total heat transfer area of approximately 24000 mm2.
