Helical Coil Heat Exchanger
The apparatus consists of fabricated shell, inside which coil tubes on outer side are fitted. The present set up is a heat exchanger, with cold water flows through shell. Valves are provided to control the are measured using Rotameters. A magnetic drive pump is used to circulate the hot water from a re-cycled type water tank, which is fitted with heaters and Digital Temperature Controller.
The main object of the experimental setup is to study the following at various flow rates:
Heat transfer rate
Overall Heat Transfer Co-efficient
