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.
