Example 15-2 A shell-and-tube heat exchanger must be designed to heat 2.5 kg/s of water from 15 to 85 o C. Hot engine oil ( o 2350J/kg C p c = ) at 160 o C enters the shell side of the exchanger. The oil provides a heat coefficient of 400 W/m 2 K on the outside of the tubes. Ten tubes pass the water through the shell. Each tube is thin-walled, of diameter D= 25 mm, and makes eight passes through the shell. If the oil leaves at 100 o C, what is its flow rate? How long must each tube be? Oil 160 Oil 100 °C Water 15 °C Water 85 °C One Pass (8 tube passes in total) Shell Side (one shell pass) One Tube (9 other tubes not shown ) Solution: () ,, , H pC Co Ci Qm c T T =− ± ± o kg J 2.5 4181 85-15 C sk g K ⎛⎞ = ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ 5 7.317 10 W ,,, H pH Hi Ho c T T ± ± H pH Q m cT T = ± ±
