A miniature shell-and-tube heat exchanger is designed to cool engine oil in an engine with the engine coolant (50% ethylene glycol). The engine oil at a flow rate of 0.23 kg/s enters the exchanger at 120°C and leaves at 115°C. The 50% ethylene glycol at a rate of
The Tube Side media flows inside the tubes and is diverted by the heat exchanger head located on the end into two or four passes or circuits. The Shell Side fluid flows on the outside of the tubes and is contained by the shell where it is diverted by baffles or tube supports that also carry the weight of the tubes.
Shell and Tube ChillXChillersShell and tube heat exchangers are most commonly used in water-only heat exchange applications, like heating hot tubs, spas, and pools in conjunction with a boiler. These very efficient heat exchangers can also be used in cooling applications for cooling (or even heating) greenhouse irrigation water including plant nutrient solutions, and industrial process chilling/heating with chemicals as well as food
Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger. WCR Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers are intended for heating or cooling process fluids, they are suitable for cooling water soluble oil solutions in quenching tanks and for closed circuit cooling of electrical equipment using demineralised water. The shell side typically holds the process fluid, and the tube side contains water or an ethylene glycol from a chiller unit.
