DOUBLE PIPE HEAT EXCHANGER-PARALLEL FLOW AIM: To determine the overall heat transfer coefficient on the given double

pipe heat exchanger theoretically and experimentally and also to determine the LMTD heat transfer and effectiveness of double heat exchanger for parallel flow. INTRODUCTION: Heat exchangers are the devices in which heat is transferred from one fluid to another. The necessity for doing so arises in a number of industrial and domestic applications. Some example are radiation of a car, lorry etc, the condensate at the back of the refrigerator, air conditioner,etc.. Heat exchanger are classified into three categories Transfer type Storage type Direct type

A transfer type of heat exchanger is one in which both fluid passes simultaneously through the seprate walls. In practice most of the heat exchanger is further classififed according to flow arrangement. Parallel Flow in which fluids flow in same direction Counter Flow in which fluids flow in opposite direction Cross flow in which fluids flow at right angle to each other A simple example of transfer type heat exchanger which can be used in the form of tube in tube. One fluid flow through the inner tube and other through the annular is surrounding it. The heat exchanger takes place across the wall of the inner tube. The function of heat exchanger is to increases the temperature of cold fluid and to decrease the temperature of hot fluid. The two fluids enter at the same end of the system and leaves at the same end and flow parallel to each other through out the unit is termed as parallel flow.

PRECAUTION: Water is opened and outlet walls must be opened. Before switching on the heater first check water flow. Any leak in tubes is to be checked and to be corrected. The flow rate must be constant. Thermocouple must be checked before taking reading.

PROCEDURE: Water is allowed to pass through the heater. Switching on the power supply to provide heat to the heater which acts as hot water inlet. Flow rate of hot water outlet and coldwater outlet are adjusted ,so that both are same of measured using measuring flask Water was circulated till the steady state was reached and then inlet and outlet temperature is noted. Repeat the experiment for various flowrate.

INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION: Boiler,super heater,condenser at the power plant Used to condense and evaporate in industry Heat exchanger are used in refrigerant and ac system Automobile radiator. Evaporator and chiller for milks
