Abstract

Heat exchangers are most widely used for heat transfer applications in industries. Shell and Tube heat exchanger is one such heat exchanger, provides more area for heat transfer between two fluids in comparison with other type of heat exchanger. Shell and Tube heat exchangers are widely used for liquid-to-liquid heat transfer applications with high density working fluids. This study is focused on use of shell and tube heat exchanger for nano-fluid as a working fluid. A nano-fluid is a mixture of nano sized particles of size up to 100 nm and a base fluid. Typical nano-particles are made of metals, oxides or carbides, while base fluids may be water, ethylene glycol or oil. The effect of nano-fluid to enhance the heat transfer rate in various heat exchangers is experimentally evaluated recently. The heat transfer enhancement using nano-fluid mainly depends on type of nanoparticles, size of nano-particles and concentration of nanoparticles in base fluid. This research work deals with experimental investigation of shell and tube heat exchanger with evaluation of convective heat transfer coefficient, overall heat transfer coefficient, exchanger effectiveness. The main objective of this work is to find effects of these parameters on performance of plate heat exchanger with parallel flow arrangement.
