7.3.2 Practical exercise 2: Global energy balance in the exchanger and


losses study with varying flow rate

7.3.2.1 Objectives

Calculate the global energy balance in the exchanger by calculating the


heat transferred by the hot fluid, the heat gained by the cold fluid and heat
losses at varying flowrate. Calculate the logarithmic temperature mean
difference and the global heat transfer coefficient.

7.3.2.2 Required elements

EDIBON TICT, Shell and Tube heat exchanger.

7.3.2.3 Practical procedure

1. Check that the valves are open and that there is a countercurrent flow
configuration.

2. Check that the heating tank is full of water, above the level switch.

3. Switch on the pump and the heating element (unit supply).

4. Set the tank temperature at 45 ºC (ST16).

5. Fix the hot water flow in about 3 l/min (SC1) and adjust cold water flow
until reaching stationary operating conditions, keeping the temperature set
in the tank constant.

6. Write down temperature and flow measurements on the experimental

sheet.

7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for different volume flow rate of water.

8. Once the measurements have been taken, calculate the heat transferred
by the hot water, the heat absorbed by the cool water, the heat losses, the
log mean temperature and the overall heat transfer coefficient.
