Example 13-1 Seawater enters the inner tube of a double pipe heat exchanger. In the outer tube, steam is condensed. The tube, which is made of aluminum ( k = 102 Btu/h·ft·R), has an inner diameter of 1 in. and a wall thickness of 0.125 in. On the water side, h = 150 Btu/h·ft 2 ·R and on the steam side, h = 860 Btu/h·ft 2 ·R. For the length of time the exchanger has been in service, the fouling factor is 0.0001 m 2 ·K/W on both the inside and outside. Find U i .
