Heat Transfer Enhancement in Heat Exchanger Networks

Robin Smith, Ming Pan and Igor Bulatov,     The University of Manchester, UK

Abstract:

Heat transfer can be intensified in shell-and-tube heat exchangers for improved heat transfer performance. Such intensification has been widely studied from the point of view of individual heat exchangers (HEs). The use of heat transfer enhancement in Process Integration has many benefits. First, enhanced heat exchangers require less heat transfer area for a given heat duty because of higher heat transfer coefficients. Second, the heat transfer capacity for the given HE can be increased without changing physical size of the exchanger. Third, the use of enhancement can reduce pumping requirement in ...
