Introduction to Design of Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger
MECHANICAL DESIGN OF HEAT EXCHANGERSHeat transfer equipment may be designated by type or function it performs, such as chiller, condenser, cooler reboiler, etc. The choice of shell and tube type is determined chiefly by factors such as the need for the provision for differential movement between shell and tubes, the design pressure, the design temperature, and the fouling nature of the fluids rather than the function.
Shell and tube exchanger. The shell and tube exchanger consists of four major parts:Front
Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers Construction DetailsThe shell-and-tube heat exchanger is named for its two major components round tubes mounted inside a cylindrical shell. The shell cylinder can be fabricated from rolled plate or from piping (up to 24 inch diameters). The tubes are thin-walled tubing produced specifically for use in heat exchangers.

Section 5.4 Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger CorrectedExample 5.2 Miniature Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchanger 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 0.47 kg/s enters at 90°C.
