Example 14-2 Air flows through a tube with an inside diameter of 1.5 cm and outside diameter of 2.5 cm. The tube has a thermal conductivity of 52 W/m·K and is 5 m long. The inlet temperature is 42°C, the required outlet temperature is 52°C, and the flow rate is 50 kg/h. Steam condenses on the outside of the tube with a heat transfer coefficient of 1000 W/m 2 K. What steam temperature is required to obtain this outlet air temperature? What is the steam pressure? Use the ε – NTU method. Solution: The total heat transferred is () ,, CC o C i QCT T =− ± max min , , o C i H iC i CT T Q Q T ε == ± ± min , , H i T ±
