SHELL AND TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER
.
.

PROCEDURE

1.Choose the type of heat exchanger(Co-current or Counter-current) in the experimental section.Enter the left side button to start the concurrent flow and enter right side button to start the countercurrent flow heat exchanger experiment.

2.Enter the tube inlet temperature to any value within the range of 0 to 100°C.

3.Enter the shell inlet temperature to any value within the range of 0 to 100°C.

4.Enter the flow rate of shell and tube should be from (0.00001 to 0.0001 m3/sec)

5.Click the Ok button and clickStart button to start the experiment.

6.Note down the temperature at four axial locations of the the heat exchanger at a time interval of one minute from the table at the bottom of the heat exchangers.

7.Plot the final tube and shell side temperature as a function of axial length of the heat exchanger.

8.Enter the new tube inlet temperature or the new shell inlet temperature.

9.Click the Input button and click Start button to start the experiment.

10.Plot the evoluation of temperature profile at the shell and tube side along the length of the heat exchanger.

11.Click The Start New button to start the experiment again.

12.Calculate the Time Constant
