ABSTRACT

Heat exchanger is a device that built for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another.
There are two type of flow in double pipe heat exchanger that is counter-flow and co-current
flow. Both hot and cold fluids enter the heat exchanger at the same end and move in the same
direction in parallel flow (co-current). On the other hand, the hot and cold fluids enter the
heat exchanger at opposite ends and flow in opposite directions in counter flow. The heat
exchanger also affected by hot water temperature inlet and the flow rate variation. Hot water
taken from the pump are discharge while the cold water is taken from the pipe. It has been
used in all fields in our life especially, in industries field. They use the heat exchanger to treat
the hot fluid stream either it product or undesired product. For this experiment we want to
determine the inlet and outlet temperature of cold and hot water streams at steady state in
counter-current shell and tube heat exchanger, to calculate the heat transfer and heat loss for
energy balance study and also to find the LMTD and heat transfer coefficients and to perform
and understanding the temperature profile and effect of flow rates on the heat transfer. The
experiment is conducted using counter-current flow in shell and tube heat exchanger. The hot
water flow rates (FT1) is set to fix and cold water flow rates (FT2) is varied. The experiment
is repeated by varied the FT1 and fixed the FT2. The result shows the effectiveness of heat
transfer at constant FT1 and FT2 is 0.05972 and 0.0593 respectively. As a conclusion, the
higher the rate of heat transfer, the higher the effectiveness of heat transfer.

INTRODUCTION

Heat exchanger is an equipment built for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another.
Different applications of heat exchanger require different types of hardware and
configurations of heat transfer equipment. There are several types of heat exchanger such as
double pipe heat exchanger, compact heat exchanger, shell and tube heat exchanger and plate
and frame heat exchanger. In this experiment, shell and tube heat exchanger was the only
apparatus are used. It is can be classified as parallel flow and counters flow and cross flow.
For parallel flow, the hot and cold fluids are enters and exit flow in same direction. For
counter flow, the hot and cold fluid flow in opposite thus the exchanger and exit exchanger
2

from opposite ends (P.Arthur., 1989). The temperature gradient or the differences in
temperature facilitate this transfer of heat. Transfer of heat happens by three principle means:
radiation, conduction and convection. In the use of heat exchangers radiation does take place.
However, in comparison to conduction and convection, radiation does not play a major role.
Conduction occurs as the heat from the higher temperature fluid passes through the solid wall.
To maximize the heat transfer, the wall should be thin and made of a very conductive
material.

OBJECTIVES

1. To determine the inlet and outlet temperature of cold and hot water streams at steady
state in counter-current shell and tube heat exchanger.
2. To calculate the heat transfer and heat loss for energy balance study.
3. To find the LMTD and heat transfer coefficients.
4. To perform and understanding the temperature profile and effect of flow rates on the
heat transfer.

THEORY

Heat exchangers transfer heat from one working fluid to another. For instance, steam
generators, feed water heaters, re-heaters and condensers are all examples of heat exchangers
found in nuclear power systems. The heat transfer rate across a heat exchanger is usually
expressed in the form
Q = UA TLM & (1)

Where:
Q& = heat transfer rate
U = overall heat transfer coefficient
A = heat exchanger area
TLm = average temperature difference between the fluids
The overall heat transfer coefficient is a function of the flow geometry, fluid properties and
material composition of the heat exchanger. The average temperature difference between the
fluids is in general a function of the fluid properties and flow geometry as well. Heat
exchanger design requires consideration of each of these factors.

Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient


The overall heat transfer coefficient represents the total resistance to heat transfer from one
fluid to another. The functional form of U or the product UA, may be derived for any
particular geometry by performing a standard conduction analysis on the system of interest.
To illustrate this, consider first a planar wall of thickness L, subject to convection on both
sides.

Figure 2: Planar Wall Heat Exchanger


The heat transfer rate from the hot fluid to the wall for a surface area defined by the length
segment z is given by Newtons Law of Cooling as

q=hc1AS[TH-T1]

Equation [1]

TH-T1= q/(hc1As)

Equation [2]

such that

Gives the temperature drop from the hot to cold fluid as

Equation 3a and 3b
is the Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient. In actual heat exchanger design, the planar wall is
seldom used. A more common design involves heat transfer across a tube wall as illustrated
in Figure 2.

The temperature drop from the hot to cold fluid as

q =UA [TH TC]

Equation [4]

Where

Equation [5]

Since the heat transfer area on the interior of the tubes is different from that on the exterior in
cylindrical geometry, the product UA is normally used to describe heat exchanger
performance. Equations 4 the heat transfer across a small length segment z where the hot
and cold fluid temperatures can be considered constant. In reality, the hot and cold fluid
temperatures change continuously along the length of the heat exchanger.

DISCUSSIONS

In this experiment, the objectives are achieved when the experiment was carryout. First, the
objective is to determine the inlet and outlet temperature of cold and hot water streams in and
out at steady state in counter-current shell and tube heat exchanger. Second is to calculate the
heat transfer and heat loss for energy balance study and also to find the LMTD and heat
transfer coefficients. Lastly, objective of this experiment is to perform and understanding the
temperature profile and effect of flow rates on the heat transfer.
From the result, it shows that hot and cold water from inlet and outlet have difference
temperature. Therefore, it proved that heat exchangers transfer heat from one working fluid to
another. This can be applied to industries field. A heat loss at hot water streams are increase
from 2 LPM until 10 LPM. The maximum heat loss energy for constant hot water is
1439.56W at 10 LPM. Also, heat loss at cold water streams are increasing from 2LPM until
10 LPM. For cold water streams the maximum heat loss energy is 1380.58 W at 10 LPM.
The highest average temperature difference between the fluids for the hot water
streams is 13.75 C at 10 LPM. While for the cold water streams the highest average
temperature difference between the fluids is 15.15C at 10 LPM. Increasing LPM are
increased the heat transfer coefficient for hot and cold water streams. The maximum heat
transfer coefficient at hot water streams is 1439.56 W/m2.C at 10 LPM while for cold water
streams heat transfer coefficient is 1380.58 W/m2 C at 10 LPM. The overall heat transfer
coefficient represents the total resistance to heat transfer from one fluid to another.
Generally, temperature profile hot and cold water flow rates show that hot water
higher than cold water. The heat transfer is dependent on the flow rate to increase for both
temperature profiles. It shows that the higher the flowrate the lower the heat transfer between
the fluids.

CONCLUSIONS

From the result of this experiment, it shows that temperature of hot and cold water decrease
and increase with higher difference of temperature inlet and outlet. It shows the counter
current heat exchanger have efficient heaat transfer. Also, it proved that heat exchangers
transfer heat from one working fluid to another that have been applied in our life such shower.
The heat loss at hot water streams are increase from 2 LPM until 10 LPM. Heat transfer
coefficient for hot and cold water streams are increase as increase LPM.

The overall heat

transfer coefficient represents the total resistance to heat transfer from one fluid to another. A
temperature profile hot and cold water flow rates shows that hot water is higher than cold
water. The effects of flow rate on heat transfer are increase for both temperature profiles.

RECOMMENDATION

1. Ensure that the flow rates obtained are measured accurately.


2. The temperatures should be taken at least 15 minutes after they reach the desired
temperature for best results.
3. Replace the water with other materials such as hydrocarbon or refrigerant in order to
expose with the different physical and properties of the fluid.
4. Make sure the parameters such as temperature, pressure or flow rates is constant
before collecting the results.
