Derive an expression for logarithmic mean temperature difference (LMTD) in counter
flow heat exchanger.
Exhaust gases (Cp =1.12 KJ/Kg-deg) flowing through a tubular heat exchanger at the rate
of 1200 Kg/hr are cooled from 400?C to 120?C. The cooling is affected by water
(Cp = 4.18 KJ/Kg K) that enters the system at 10?C at the rate of 1500Kg/hr. If the
overall heat transfer coefficient is 500 KJ/m2-hr-deg. What heat exchanger area is
required to handle the load for :
(a) Parallel flow arrangement
(b) Counter flow arrangement.
When one of the two fluids undergoes phase change, show that effectiveness values for
both parallel flow and counter flow heat exchanger are equal and given by = 1- exp
A chemical having a specific heat of 3.3 KJ/Kg K flowing at the rate of 20,000Kg/h
enters a parallel flow heat exchanger at 120?C. The flow rate of cooling water is 50,000
Kg/h with an inlet temperature of 20?C. The transfer area is 10m2 and overall heat
transfer coefficient is 1200 W/m2 ?C. Taking specifications heat of water as 4.186KJ/Kg
a) Effectiveness of the heat exchanger
b) Outlet temperature of water and chemical.
Explain the methods for performance evaluation of heat transfer enhancement techniques.
n a counter flow double pipe heat exchanger, water is heated from 25?C to 65?C by an oil
with a specific heat of 1.45KJ/Kg K and mass flow rate of 0.9Kg/s. The oil is cooled
from 230?C to 160?C. If the overall heat transfer coefficient is 420W/m2 ?C, calculate the
(a) The rate of heat transfer
(b) The mass flow rate of water
