Research Update: 2018 - Year in HTRI Research
February 28, 2019This 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...
CS-21 Xist Thermal Predictions of Horizontal Shellside Condensation with Subcooling
October 10, 2018HTRI 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...
Is My Design OK? Modeling Air Cooled Condensers with Subcooling
January 16, 2017Subcooling is often required for air cooled condensers. This webinar will address common technical support questions such as – how many tubes and passes are needed to subcool sufficiently? how is phase separation modeled? what are the best modeling guidelines for Xace? – and provide HTRI's recommendations. Attending this webinar will...
