```									TITLE:

Double Pipe Heat Exchanger Performance.

OBJECTIVE:

To demonstrate the differences between co-current and counter –current heat

transfer by exploring the effect on the amount of heat transferred temperature

efficiencies and temperature profiles for both regimes.

PROCEDURE

The thermocouple is checked to be connected in co-current mode. Cold water is set

to flow to 1 l/min and the cold water is determined. Then, the hot water temperature

controller is set to 600C and flow to a 2 l/min above the cold water temperature.

When all temperature reading is stabilized, a full set of thermocouple readings are

recorded and it is repeated 7 more times at 2 min intervals. Then, the heater and hot

water flow is switched off then the apparatus is cooled down. The valves near the hot

water connections are closed. The all steps for co-current mode is repeated using

counter-current mode.

APPARATUS:

U-shaped double pipe, hot water and cold water
SUMMARY

Heat is thermal energy. It can be transferred from one place to another by

conduction, convection and radiation. This experiment is to demonstrate differences

between co-current and counter –current heat transfer. The cocurrent flow is

connected in the same direction and counter current flow is connected in the

opposite direction.this experiment is conducted using U-shaped double pipe.the

efficiency of the heat transfer is depend on the LMTD and flow rate.the counter

current flow is more efficiency compare to co current flow.the different flow rate of

hot water in counter current flow influence the efficiency of heat transfer.

DISCUSSION:

The aim of this experiment is to demonstrate the differences between co current and

counter-current heat transfer by exploring the effect on the amount of heat

transferred, temperature efficiencies and temperature profiles for both regimes.U-

shaped double pipe .there are three basic mechanisms of heat transfer. There are

conduction, convection and radiation. In heat exchanger equipment, the temperature

of the flowing fluid is continuously changing and hence ∆T is also changing. Heat

transfer can be determined using the equation Q=UA∆T. the heat transfer of hot

water is more efficiency compared to cold water.

The meant of co current in this experiment is the both cold water and hot water can

be connected to flow in the same direction as the hot water in u-shaped double pipe.

Besides, counter current is the both cold water and hot water is connected to flow in

the opposite direction.In counter cuurent mode the exchanger takes place between

two liquids which flowing in contrary sense.From the experiment data it can be said

that the counter current flow is more efficient for heat transfer compare to co current

flow. It is expected because the log mean temperature different, ∆T of co current flow

is lower compared to counter current flow. Thus it will influence the transfer in u-

shaped double pipe. That means co current flow is less efficient for heat transfer

than counter current flow. In co current flow, since the cold water and hot water flow

in the same direction it will reduce the temperature. The heat transfer in the counter

current flow also depends on the flow rate of both cold water and hot water. It means

the different of flow rate will influence the heat transfer. The efficiency of the heat

transfer process is the amount of energy absorbed by the cold stream divide by the

amount of energy loss from the hot stream, Qe . The measurement of heat transfer u-
shaped double pipe might be inaccurate because some human error when recording

the data. The actual flow rate is hard to set accurately.

The heat transfer also depends on the flow rate. When the hot flow rate alters thus

log mean temperature different increase and when the cold flow rate alters thus the

log mean temperature decrease. It is also observed that with increase in flow rate of

hot fluid, both heat transfer coefficient increases but the heat transfer coefficient

decrease when the cold flow rate appears.

CONCLUSION:

Heat transfer is the transition of the thermal energy from a higher temperature object

to lower temperature object.the heat transfer occur when the body and the

surrounding reach thermal equilibrium.when there is temperature different between

object in proximity the heat transfer can be stopped but it can be slow down.

EXAMPLE CALCULATION:

Q=mcp∆T

m = flow rate x density

= (2 x 1000m3/60 s) x 967.8 kg/m3

= 32260 kg/s

Q=32260 x 4.17 x (76.5 – 49.7)

=356489 k W

LMTD= (∆Tin - ∆Tout)/ln (∆Tin/∆Tout)

= (85.5-39.3)-(76.2-59.7)/ ln (85.5-39.3)-(76.2-49.7)

=37.3 0C

A=2πrL

=2π x 0.0083/2 x 0.66

=0.0017 m2

Q=U A LMTD

U=Q/A LMTD

= 356489 /(0.0017 x 37.3)

= 5621968 W/m2.K
