TH 241 MULTI HEAT EXCHANGER, Transparent Casing

The apparatus is used for studying of three types of heat exchangers namely-concentric tube, shell and tube, and plate-under parallel or counter flow conditions.

The unit consists of the three heat exchangers, and a service module. The module comprises a hot water tank with a transfer pump and instruments for monitoring and control. Selection of the heat exchanger is simply by opening a valve and changing from parallel to counter flow is by switch two flexible hoses with quick coupling. The unit requires outside water supply.

Instruction manual is also included.

  • Comparison of heat transfer coefficients for concentric tube, shell and tube, and plate heat exchanger.
  • Demonstration of heat transfer under parallel or counter flow.
  • Demonstration of batch type heat transfer for jacketed vessel.
  • Determination heat transfer coefficient.
  • Effects of flow rate and temperature difference.
Heat exchangers:
 - Concentric tube 2 sections of stainless steel inner tube with transparent casing (borosilicate glass)
 - Shell and tube Stainless steel inner tubes with transparent casing.
 - Plate Stainless steel multiple plates.
