• Research Update: Sealing Device Application

    January 15, 2017
    During this webinar, we discuss the basics of sealing devices, including common practices and design guidelines. Further, we review the basic flow resistance equation for sealing strips used in Xist Version 7 and compare the measured performances of HTRI research-scale heat exchanger using sealing strips to CFD and Xist predictions....

  • S-SS-3-28 Optimal Application of Shellside Sealing Devices

    January 16, 2017
    This report documents two approaches to analyze the performance of different sealing devices. The first approach examines an exchanger with a fixed sealing device count and varied baffle spacing. The second approach considers an exchanger with fixed shellside geometry but different sealing device types and arrangements. Comparisons are made between experimental...
