TechTip: Modeling Plate-and-Shell Heat Exchangers using Xphe
July 29, 2020This webinar briefly reviews HTRI research on plate-and-frame heat exchangers and plate-and-shell heat exchangers (PSHEs), focusing on the geometry differences and similarities between the two types. Xphe® is a module in Xchanger Suite® for modeling plate-and-frame heat exchangers. Using an example case, we will discuss how to use Xphe to model a PSHE. Additionally, we identify the key...
TT-30 Modeling plate-and-shell heat exchangers using Xphe
May 06, 2020Component: Xphe Applicable to: All supported versions (versions 7.3 through 8.1) Date posted: 6 May 2020 Xphe, a module in Xchanger Suite, models plate-and-frame heat exchangers (PHEs) with rectangular plates. This TechTip provides a workaround for using Xphe to model plate-and-shell exchangers (PSHEs) with circular plates before HTRI develops a software...
PHE-22 CFD Simulations of a Plate-and-shell Heat Exchanger
December 04, 2019HTRI experimentally evaluated the thermal-hydraulic performance of a water-water plate-and-shell heat exchanger at the Research & Technology Center and then used the results to calibrate a solution approach through computational fluid dynamics. The tortuous flow paths through the corrugated channels of the plate pack were modeled effectively using porous media. Inertial resistance...
