  • Advancing HTRI's plate heat exchanger technology

    October 16, 2018
    LiDong Huang, Principal Engineer, Experimental Research Many different designs of plate heat exchangers (PHEs) exist for different heat transfer processes. Most PHEs are formed by corrugated plates, which are often spaced by rubber sealing gaskets or welded together to form hot and cold channels. Plate shapes and fluid distribution vary for...

  • Case study: Reducing shellside maldistribution
    in a condenser

    October 16, 2018
    Summary An engineering, procurement, and construction company asked HTRI to investigate methods—constrained by permissible pressure drop—to mitigate shellside flow maldistribution for an X-shell condenser, using cold seawater on the tube side to condense an off-gas on the shell side. Challenge Determine optimal geometric design modifications that minimize maldistribution and potential structural...

  • CS-21 Xist Thermal Predictions of Horizontal Shellside Condensation with Subcooling

    October 10, 2018
    HTRI collected data in a horizontal E-shell exchanger with vertical-cut baffles, obtaining varying degrees of subcooling at the exchanger outlet for water, n-pentane, p-xylene, and  a binary mixture of n-pentane/p-xylene. Liquid level measurements along the length of the exchanger confirmed the presence of shellside flooding. Xist predicted the heat transfer area...
