Objective

Objective

  • To design a heat exchanger than meets the following criteria:

    • Cools liquid from 45 C to 25 C

    • Must be less than 7 meters in length

    • Shell diameter is less than 2 meters

    • Minimize weight of the tube and shell

    • Minimize pressure drop

    • Heat transfer ratio of 1

Analysis

Analysis

  • Use Minitab and Matlab

  • Minitab

    • Use to obtain the main effects plots, Pareto charts, and the response optimizer.

  • Matlab

    • Use to run analysis of the DOE files and to give us the outputs of total weight, calculated heat transfer, cost, and pressure drops.

    • DOE allows us to determine the most important variables in this design.

Analysis 1 st doe

Analysis: 1st DOE


Analysis pareto charts 1 st doe

Analysis: Pareto Charts 1st DOE

7 Factor Analysis for DP_Tube


Analysis 1 st optimization

Analysis: 1st Optimization

Minitab solved for a local solution.

The starting values were changed multiple times until Minitab found a new, more optimal solution.


Analysis 2 nd doe

Analysis: 2nd DOE


Analysis 2 nd optimization

Analysis: 2nd Optimization

Starting values of the optimization were varied with no improvement in performance.


Conclusions damn near perfect

Conclusions: Damn near perfect!

Heat Transfer Coeff : 876.97 W/m2.C

R-value:0.98

Number of tubes:1313

Shell Pressure Loss:335.11 Pa

Tube Pressure Loss:29832.58 Pa

Weight of Heat Exchanger:350.88 kg


Conclusions recommendations

Conclusions: Recommendations

  • Could be further optimized if Tube Thickness was decreased

  • Resulting in:

    • Lower weight - decrease of 51.93 kg

    • Lower Tube pressure loss - decrease of 6703.1 Pa

    • No significant loss of R-value

  • A smaller tube is not commercially available

  • Possibly achieve greater performance at a greater price
