Fabrication and Experimental Analysis of Heat Transfer Characteristics of Acetone /Water by using Tube in Tube and Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger

Cooling is essential to maintain the required efficiency and reliability in a wide range of products such as automobiles, high and medium cogeneration power plants, high power laser systems. Part of heat load amplification and the heat fluxes induced by more industrial products, cooling is one of the industry's main technical problems such as manufacturing, transport and in microelectronics. The main content of the paper is to study the LMTD (logarithmic mean temperature difference), Heat

This paper deals with the experimental study on the three different heat exchangers like tube in tube, shell and tube and combined (tube in tube & shell and tube) heat exchanger with acetone/water mixture mostly to check the elevation of convective heat transfer coefficient, LMTD, effectiveness, overall heat transfer coefficient. This experimentation work give a summary of, the experimental study of the forced convective heat transfer and flow characteristics of a 25% acetone consisting of 75% water. Acetone/water mixture flow in to a parallel, counter direction in the tube in tube, shell and tube heat exchanger and combined heat exchanger under laminar flow conditions. A maximum increase in the coefficient of convective heat transfer of 58.4% and an effectiveness of 48.5% is recorded. However, combined heat exchanger provides better heat transfer characteristics than parallel and counter flow tubular and shell and tube heat exchanger due to the multi-pass flow of acetone/water. The overall heat transfer coefficients, Reynolds number, logarithmic mean temperature difference, the effectiveness of the acetone/water are also studied and the results are presented in tabular columns and figures.
