February 18 - 21, 2019

The first HTRI training event of 2019 will be held in Navasota, Texas, USA, at the HTRI Global Headquarters. We hope you can attend one (or all!) of the following courses:

  • Xist Workshop
  • Process Heat Exchangers: Applications and Rules-of-thumb Short Course
  • Xace Workshop

Date:
February 28, 2019
Time:
10:30 AM CST (UTC -06:00)

This webinar highlights the accomplishments of HTRI Research over the past year and describes how HTRI members can benefit from these developments. We briefly discuss airside studies with our air cooler unit, vacuum condensation experiments with hydrocarbon mixtures, new phase change methods for plate heat exchangers, subcooling with shellside condensation, and more.  The session updates information originally presented at the 2018 Global Conference.

In an experimental, sponsored research program, HTRI investigated the thermal and hydraulic characteristics of a welded plate heat exchanger (WPHE). We conducted liquid-phase, flow boiling, and condensation experiments in a WPHE provided by Hisaka Works, Ltd.

These data, together with single-phase and phase-change data from other commercially available chevron-type plate heat exchangers, provide us a strong foundation for developing generalized heat transfer and pressure drop methods for corrugated crisscross channels. 

In this presentation, we discuss our analysis of the data. We demonstrate thermal stratification of liquid flow and liquid-vapor and temperature maldistribution of horizontal flow boiling in vertical channels. Because software specific to modeling cross flow of hot and cold streams in WPHEs was not available, we used Xphe to estimate thermal predictions. Using a countercurrent arrangement—and without accounting for the impact of cross flow or maldistribution—Xphe predicts most of the data within reasonable ranges. However, the current phase-change methods in Xphe do require some improvement before they apply to all plate heat exchangers with corrugated crisscross channels.
