Miscellaneous Special Application Heat Transfer Equipment

It is necessary to work with the manufacturer to size and rate these special units, because sufficient public data/correlations of heat transfer do not exist to allow the design engineer to handle the final and detailed design with confidence.

Corrugated Tube Heat Exchangers

Figures 15-12I, J and K indicate the process flow patterns for single tube units for multiple corrugated tubes in a single plain shell. These units are suitable for heating or cooling process fluids containing high pulp or fiber content suspended particulates. The heat transfer coefficients are better than plain tubes, as the turbulence improves the performance. The units can be arranged in multiple shells for parallel ...
