A heat exchanger is a device that is used to transfer thermal energy (enthalpy) between . of these exchangers but are beyond the scope of this book. PROCESS DESIGN OF SHELL AND TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER, CONDENSER AND .. petroleum fractions are available in the text book (; page ). Heat exchangers are off-the-shelf equipment targeted to the efficient transfer of heat from a hot fluid flow to a cold fluid flow, in most cases through an.
This type of baffle forces the fluid to pass around each side of the disk then through the doughnut baffle generating a different type of fluid flow. Fixed tube liquid-cooled heat exchangers especially suitable for marine and harsh applications can be assembled with brass shells, copper tubes, brass baffles, and forged brass integral end hubs.
Conceptual diagram of a plate and frame heat exchanger. A single plate heat exchanger An interchangeable plate heat exchanger applied to the system of a swimming pool Plate heat exchangers[ edit ] Main article: Plate heat exchanger Another type of heat exchanger is the plate heat exchanger.
These exchangers are composed of many thin, slightly separated plates that have very large surface areas and small fluid flow passages for heat transfer. Advances in gasket and brazing technology have made the plate-type heat exchanger increasingly practical. In HVAC applications, large heat exchangers of this type are called plate-and-frame; when used in open loops, these heat exchangers are normally of the gasket type to allow periodic disassembly, cleaning, and inspection.
There are many types of permanently bonded plate heat exchangers, such as dip-brazed, vacuum-brazed, and welded plate varieties, and they are often specified for closed-loop applications such as refrigeration.
Plate heat exchangers also differ in the types of plates that are used, and in the configurations of those plates.
When compared to shell and tube exchangers, the stacked-plate arrangement typically has lower volume and cost. Another difference between the two is that plate exchangers typically serve low to medium pressure fluids, compared to medium and high pressures of shell and tube.
A third and important difference is that plate exchangers employ more countercurrent flow rather than cross current flow, which allows lower approach temperature differences, high temperature changes, and increased efficiencies. Plate and shell heat exchanger[ edit ] A third type of heat exchanger is a plate and shell heat exchanger, which combines plate heat exchanger with shell and tube heat exchanger technologies. The heart of the heat exchanger contains a fully welded circular plate pack made by pressing and cutting round plates and welding them together.
Nozzles carry flow in and out of the platepack the 'Plate side' flowpath. The fully welded platepack is assembled into an outer shell that creates a second flowpath the 'Shell side'. Plate and shell technology offers high heat transfer, high pressure, high operating temperature , uling and close approach temperature.
In particular, it does completely without gaskets, which provides security against leakage at high pressures and temperatures. Adiabatic wheel heat exchanger[ edit ] A fourth type of heat exchanger uses an intermediate fluid or solid store to hold heat, which is then moved to the other side of the heat exchanger to be released.
Two examples of this are adiabatic wheels, which consist of a large wheel with fine threads rotating through the hot and cold fluids, and fluid heat exchangers. Plate fin heat exchanger[ edit ] Main article: Plate fin heat exchanger This type of heat exchanger uses "sandwiched" passages containing fins to increase the effectiveness of the unit. The designs include crossflow and counterflow coupled with various fin configurations such as straight fins, offset fins and wavy fins.
Plate and fin heat exchangers are usually made of aluminum alloys, which provide high heat transfer efficiency. The material enables the system to operate at a lower temperature difference and reduce the weight of the equipment. Plate and fin heat exchangers are mostly used for low temperature services such as natural gas, helium and oxygen liquefaction plants, air separation plants and transport industries such as motor and aircraft engines.
Advantages of plate and fin heat exchangers: High heat transfer efficiency especially in gas treatment Larger heat transfer area Approximately 5 times lighter in weight than that of shell and tube heat exchanger. Able to withstand high pressure Disadvantages of plate and fin heat exchangers: Might cause clogging as the pathways are very narrow Difficult to clean the pathways Aluminium alloys are susceptible to Mercury Liquid Embrittlement Failure Pillow plate heat exchanger[ edit ] A pillow plate exchanger is commonly used in the dairy industry for cooling milk in large direct-expansion stainless steel bulk tanks.
The pillow plate allows for cooling across nearly the entire surface area of the tank, without gaps that would occur between pipes welded to the exterior of the tank. The pillow plate is constructed using a thin sheet of metal spot-welded to the surface of another thicker sheet of metal. The thin plate is welded in a regular pattern of dots or with a serpentine pattern of weld lines.
After welding the enclosed space is pressurised with sufficient force to cause the thin metal to bulge out around the welds, providing a space for heat exchanger liquids to flow, and creating a characteristic appearance of a swelled pillow formed out of metal.
Fluid heat exchangers[ edit ] This is a heat exchanger with a gas passing upwards through a shower of fluid often water , and the fluid is then taken elsewhere before being cooled.
This is commonly used for cooling gases whilst also removing certain impurities, thus solving two problems at once. It is widely used in espresso machines as an energy-saving method of cooling super-heated water to use in the extraction of espresso.

March Learn how and when to remove this template message A waste heat recovery unit WHRU is a heat exchanger that recovers heat from a hot gas stream while transferring it to a working medium, typically water or oils. The hot gas stream can be the exhaust gas from a gas turbine or a diesel engine or a waste gas from industry or refinery. Large systems with high volume and temperature gas streams, typical in industry, can benefit from steam Rankine cycle SRC in a waste heat recovery unit, but these cycles are too expensive for small systems.
The recovery of heat from low temperature systems requires different working fluids than steam. An organic Rankine cycle ORC waste heat recovery unit can be more efficient at low temperature range using refrigerants that boil at lower temperatures than water.
Typical organic refrigerants are ammonia , pentafluoropropane Rfa and Rca , and toluene. The refrigerant is boiled by the heat source in the evaporator to produce super-heated vapor. This fluid is expanded in the turbine to convert thermal energy to kinetic energy, that is converted to electricity in the electrical generator.
This energy transfer process decreases the temperature of the refrigerant that, in turn, condenses. The cycle is closed and completed using a pump to send the fluid back to the evaporator.
Dynamic scraped surface heat exchanger[ edit ] Another type of heat exchanger is called " dynamic scraped surface heat exchanger ". This is mainly used for heating or cooling with high- viscosity products, crystallization processes, evaporation and high- fouling applications.
Long running times are achieved due to the continuous scraping of the surface, thus avoiding fouling and achieving a sustainable heat transfer rate during the process. Phase-change heat exchangers[ edit ] Typical kettle reboiler used for industrial distillation towers Typical water-cooled surface condenser In addition to heating up or cooling down fluids in just a single phase , heat exchangers can be used either to heat a liquid to evaporate or boil it or used as condensers to cool a vapor and condense it to a liquid.
In chemical plants and refineries , reboilers used to heat incoming feed for distillation towers are often heat exchangers. Power plants that use steam -driven turbines commonly use heat exchangers to boil water into steam.
Heat exchangers or similar units for producing steam from water are often called boilers or steam generators. He has authored numerous books, proceedings, journal articles, and conference papers covering heat exchangers and related topics. Free Access.
