Heat Exchanger Demonstrator
Description of Heat Exchanger Demonstrator
The Heat Exchanger Demonstrator consists of two heat exchangers with associated temperature indicators, flow indicators and a temperature indicating controller. A valve is provided to reverse the tube-side flow direction. The two exchangers are of similar surface area but with unique design features.
Temperature and flow data obtained can be used to calculate energy balance, heat transfer and heat transfer coefficients.
Function of Heat Exchanger Demonstrator
The Heat Exchanger Demonstrator is connected to hot and cool tap water. Process (hot) water flow is manually controlled. Cooling water flow may be either manually controlled or automatically controlled to a selected process temperature set-point. Trainees select exchanger type, flow direction and flow rate then read and record the flows and temperatures for further analysis.
