Heat transfer with shell-and-tube exchanger

UTC-2S/EV et al.

This unit consists of a shell-and-tube heat exchanger and of a tank heated by an electric heater for the production of hot water pumped by a centrifugal pump. Tests can be carried out in co-current and counter-current.

Training program

This unit enables to deepen the following issues:

  • Heat transfer between fluids separated by a wall in co-current and counter-current
  • 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
  • Automatic flow control by PID controller (for mod. UTC-2Sa/EV, only)
  • System supervision by P.C. (for mod. UTC-2Sa/EV, only)
