Heat exchangers apparatus


This equipment consists of a service unit (HES/EV) that supplies the necessary utilities and measuring instruments to carry out tests on 5 types of heat exchangers: tube-in-tube (HE1/EV), plate exchanger (HE2/EV), shell-and-tube (HE3/EV), jacketed tank (HE4/EV) and crossflow exchanger (HE5/EV).

Training program

This unit enables to deepen the following issues:

  • Heat transfer between fluids separated by a wall
  • Energy balance and calculation of efficiency
  • Log Mean Temperature Difference (LMTD)
  • Overall heat transfer coefficient (U)
  • How flow rate and of temperature difference can affect the transfer coefficient
  • Comparing the operating modes and performance of different types of heat exchangers
