A Review on Experimental Investigation of Modified U-Tube Heat Exchanger

Authors(4) :-Manish Maurya, Hiren Ladumor, Manish Tiwari, Dhaval Maheshwari

A Modify U-tube heat exchanger with the different type of tube is designed, fabricated and tested. The experimental investigation for the proposed model and the original single tube u-tube heat exchanger are conducted. The operation performances of the two heat exchangers are also compared. The results suggest that, under the same conditions, the overall performance of the new result is 20–30% more efficient than that of the single tube heat exchanger. U-tube heat exchanger is generally used in industry. In u-tube heat exchanger tube shape is u type and it is counter flow type heat exchanger. U-tube heat exchanger main part is shell, shell cover, u-tubes, tube bundle, baffles. In u-tube heat exchanger shell side fluid is cold water as cold fluid is used and tube side fluid is hot water as hot fluid is used. In this experiment we will measure different characteristic parameter like efficiency, effectiveness, pressure drop.
