Heat Exchanger Effectiveness

To calculate Q, we need both inlet and outlet temperatures:

Q = UATm = UA(FT Tlm)


T1 T1 T2

Tlm =

(T1 T1) (T2 T2) (T T ) ln 1 1 (T2 T2)

T2

What if the outlet temperatures are unknown? e.g. calculate the performance of a given heat exchanger.

Faith A. Morrison, Michigan Tech U.

To calculate unknown outlet temperatures: Procedure: 1. guess outlet temperatures 2. calculate Tlm, FT 3. calculate Q 4. calculate Q from energy balance 5. compare, adjust, repeat.

This tedious procedure can be simplified by the definition of heat-exchanger effectiveness, .

Heat Exchanger Effectiveness


Consider a counter-current double-pipe heat exchanger:

Tco Thi Thi Tco Tci Tho

Tho Tci
distance along the exchanger

Faith A. Morrison, Michigan Tech U.

Energy balance cold side:

Qin,cold = Q = mC p cold (Tco Tci )


Energy balance hot side:

Qin,hot = Q = mC p hot(Tho Thi )

(mCp)hot (Tco Tci) Tc (mCp)cold = (Tho Thi) = Th

Case 1:

Tc > Th

(mC p)hot > (mC p)cold


Thi Tco

cold fluid = minimum fluid

Th

Tho
We want to compare the amount of heat transferred in this case to the amount of heat transferred in a PERFECT heat exchanger.

Tc

Tci
distance along the exchanger

If the heat exchanger were perfect, Thi=Tco

Thi = Tco Tho


cold side: this temperature difference only depends on inlet temperatures

A=

Tci

distance along the exchanger

QA= = mC p cold (Thi Tci )

cold fluid = minimum fluid if is known, we can calculate Q without iterations

this temperature difference distance along the exchanger only depends on inlet temperatures

Heat Exchanger Effectiveness,

Q QA=

Q = mC p hot(Thi Tci )
hot fluid = minimum fluid in general,

Q = mC p min(Thi Tci )
if is known, we can calculate Q without iterations

But where do we get ?


The same equations we use in the trial-and-error solution can be combined algebraically to give as a function of (mCp)min, (mCp)max.
countercurrent flow:

( mC p )min UA 1 (mCp )min (mCp )max 1 e = ( ) mC UA p min 1 mC p (mCp )min (mCp )min min 1 e mC p max

This relation is plotted in Geankoplis, as is the relation for co-current flow.

Final Exam

3. (25 points) Water flowing at a rate of 0.723 kg/s enters the inside of a countercurrent, double-pipe heat exchanger at 300K and is heated by an oil stream that enters at 385K at a rate of 3.2kg/s. The heat capacity of the oil is 1.89 kJ/kg K, and the average heat capacity of water over the temperature range of interest is 4.192 kJ/kg K. The overall heat-transfer coefficient of the exchanger is 300 W/m2 K, and the area for heat transfer is 15.4 m2. What is the total amount of heat transferred?
