TT-23 Specifying tubeside reflux condensers in Xist
January 26, 2017Component: Xist Applicable to: All supported versions (versions 7.3 and 8) Date posted: 23 January 2017 Reflux condensers have been used in industry for many years. Sometimes called knockback or dephlegmator condensers, these condensers allow vapor to enter and condensate to exit at the lower end of the unit. Tubeside...
TT-15 Single-phase vapor and condensing heat transfer across inline low-finned tube bundles in cross flow
January 26, 2017Component: Xace, Xist Applicable to: Version 7.3 and previous Date posted: 22 May 2012 Last updated: 7 September 2017 Externally finned tube bundles can be specified for applications where the outside heat transfer coefficient is less than the inside coefficient. Using inline low-finned tubes in 90-degree layouts allows for cleaning by mechanical means....
Research Update: Crossflow Mixed Convection Heat Transfer for Horizontal Tube Banks
January 16, 2017This webinar reviews measurement of mixed convection heat transfer using liquids in crossflow over ideal horizontal plain and low-finned tube banks. We identify when natural convection may enhance or penalize crossflow heat transfer and recommend new calculations to improve HTRI software predictions....
