### Heat Transfer

Flow Inside Heat Exchangers

Flow inside Heat Exchangers
• In Heat Exchangers, one fluid is cooled while the other fluid is heated without direct contact between fluids.
• There are two types of flow inside Heat Exchangers.

1- Parallel Flow

(Co current Flow)

2- Countercurrent Flow

Typically in heat exchangers, the heat lost by the hot fluid is gained by the cold fluid through indirect contact (neglecting any heat losses), an overall Energy Balance Equation can be written as:

Q=w cp(t2-t1)=W Cp (T1-T2)=UoAotm

• Uo:Overall heat transfer coefficient
• Ao:Heat transfer area
• tm:Average temperature difference
• Rwallcan be neglected compared with convection resistances.

• Where is the heat transfer coefficient of the inner fluid based on the outside area

For a differential element inside the exchanger, with a thickness dx, T & t are the mean values of the hot and cold fluids respectively, t=T-t

Example (1)

A hot fluid enters the exchanger at T1=300oF and leaves at T2oF, A cooler fluid enters the exchanger at t1=100oF and leaves at t2oF

a) If T2=200oF and t2=170oF

b) If T2=t2=182oF

c) If T2=110oF and t2=233oF

In case of Isothermal Fluids

If a cold fluid is heated from 100oF to 275oF by condensing steam at 300oF, Calculate LMTD for both cases
