1. 1 tube pass countercurrent flow arrangement
2. 1.25 triangular pitch layout
3. 1 in. Tubesheet Thickness
4. Stainless Steel as metal
This is ridiculous information on an
engineering calculation. Use significant
figures and avoid mistakes, confusion, etc.

## This is not only a ridiculous number, it is the wrong answer because it

is based on the transfer area - and not on the hydraulic requirements
that fix the inside heat transfer coefficient - such as the velocity inside
the tubes. That is why you must use engineering common sense and
plan the calculation procedure to enable you to depend on a
reasonable velocity and - therefore - a reasonable coeffient. If a true
counter-current configuration is required than common sense should
tell us that the tubes are either going to be much, much larger than
3.7 meters - or a different TEMA configuration is required , such as a
BFM or multiple shells in series.
