CHE 434 Analysis Project 2 Operability of a Heat Exchanger Planning Conference 1. Leader a. Objectives b. Plans c. Theory, ideas, principles d. Timetable/schedule 2. Experimentalist a. Safety concerns i. Steam piping – wear insulated gloves ii. Condensate in pipes – proceed slowly at startup iii. Possible cool water boiling – maintain cool water flow throughout all experiments b. Apparatus i. Fluid delivery systems 1. Piping and tubing 2. Valves ii. Measurement devices 1. Rotameter 2. Pressure gauge 3. Thermocouples iii. Heat exchanger 1. Concentric pipe-in-pipe exchanger 2. Steam condenses in outer annulus (shell side), 3-in Sch 40 SS 3. Cool water is heat in inner annulus (tube side), 1-in Sch 40 SS 4. ~7 ft insulated heating section
