H102C Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger

H102C Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger

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.

Four thermocouples measure hot and cold fluid entry and exit temperatures. Self sealing quick release connections enable rapid connection to the H102 and conversion from parallel to counter-current flow.

  • Demonstration of indirect heating or cooling by transfer of heat from one fluid stream to another when separated by a solid wall.
  •  Conducting an energy balance across a shell and tube exchanger and calculate the overall efficiency at different fluid flow rates
  •  To demonstrate the differences between counter-current flow and co-current flows  and the effect on heat transfer, temperature efficiencies and temperature profiles through a shell and tube heat exchanger.
  •  To determine the overall heat transfer coefficient for a shell and tube heat exchanger using the logarithmic mean temperature difference to perform the calculations (for counter-current and co-current flows).
  •  To investigate the effect of changes in hot fluid and cold fluid flow rate on the temperature efficiencies and overall heat transfer coefficient.
  •  To investigate the effect of driving forces (difference between hot stream and cold stream temperature) with counter-current and co-current flow
