FIND: Whether cleaning should be scheduled. SCHEMATIC: ASSUMPTIONS: (1) Negligible tube wall conduction resistance, (2) Negligible changes in h c and h h . ANALYSIS: From Equation 11.1, the overall heat transfer coefficient after one year is f, i f,o i o 1 1 1 R R . U h h = + + + Since the first two terms on the right-hand side correspond to the reciprocal of the initial overall coefficient, ( 29 2 2 2 1 1 0.001 5 0.0005 m K / W 0.0045 m K / W U 400 W / m K = + + = 2 U 222 W / m K. = COMMENTS: Periodic cleaning of the tube inner surfaces is essential to maintaining efficient fire- tube boiler operations. PROBLEM 11.2 KNOWN : Type-302 stainless tube with prescribed inner and outer diameters used in a cross-flow heat exchanger. Prescribed fouling factors and internal water flow conditions. FIND: (a) Overall coefficient based upon the outer surface, U o , with air at T o =15 C and velocity V o = 20 m/s in cross-flow; compare thermal resistances due to convection, tube wall conduction and fouling; (b) Overall coefficient, U o , with water (rather than air) at T o = 15 C and velocity V o = 1 m/s in cross- flow; compare thermal resistances due to convection, tube wall conduction and fouling; (c) For the water-air conditions of part (a), compute and plot U o as a function of the air cross-flow velocity for 5 V o 30 m/s for water mean velocities of u m,i = 0.2, 0.5 and 1.0 m/s; and (d) For the water-water conditions of part (b), compute and plot U o as a function of the water mean velocity for 0.5 u m,i 2.5 m/s for air cross-flow velocities of V o = 1, 3 and 8 m/s.
