This module is for design/simulation
of various type of heat exchangers viz. Shell & Tube, Finned Tube,
Double Pipe etc. The program automatically takes care of phase change calculations
and carry out calculations for Boiling, Condensation etc.
Once all the data
has been entered, this is used to calculate the performance of the heat
For a specified heat
exchanger details and process fluid parameters at the inlet of exchanger,
this will simulate the exchanger performance and give the outlet streams
after heat transfer.
This module also
takes care of heat balance just as before. Only thing
is that you have
to fill in details of shell side stream and tube side
stream for inlet
as well as outlet. You can leave the value to be
calculated as zero.
In case of simulation you can leave the value of
both outlet temperatures
as zero. Depending upon number of degrees of
freedom, the program
does the heat balance. In heat exchanger module you
can try lot of things,
including graphical temperature profile etc.
