1 Lecture 4: Heat Treatment of Milk (contd.) Carmen I. Moraru Cornell University Other types of equipment: tubular heat exchangers - Can handle products that contain particles. - Higher flow velocity is needed to create efficient heat transfer in a tubular heat exchanger as compared to a plate heat exchanger. - Tubular heat exchanger types: multi/mono tube and concentric tube. Multi/mono tube - Operate on the shell and tube principle. Turbulence for efficient heat transfer is created by helical corrugations on the tubes and shell. - Can operate at very high pressures and high temperatures. - The monotube is a version with only one inner tube, which allow particles with a diameter up to 50 mm to pass.

2 Concentric tube heat exchangers - Consist of straight tubes of different diameters, concentrically located. - The heating/cooling media is located on both sides of the annular product channel efficient heating or cooling. - Well suited for high viscous fluids with strong non-Newtonian flow behavior. - The concentric tube is designed with floating tubes to absorb thermal expansion and to facilitate the inspection of product and media channels.
