Sep 01, 2016 · Horizontal geothermal heat exchangers (HGHEs) with vertical spiral coils have been increasingly used in ground source heat pump (GSHP) systems. Research studies have been conducted using field tests and simulations trying to reveal the heat transfer mechanism of HGHEs with vertical spiral coils and to provide a good heat transfer performance.
the performance of slinky-coil horizontal ground heat exchangers for optimum design of slinky-coil horizontal ground heat exchangers. Because of the complexity of slinky heat exchanger configurations, Demir et al. (2009) calculated heat transfer through a horizontal parallel pipe ground heat exchanger using a numerical method.

Heat transfer of a horizontal spiral heat exchanger under Nov 01, 2012 · Groundwater flows at approximately 13 m under the ground surface in a given region. If groundwater flow is present, the performance of a horizontal ground heat exchanger (HGHE), buried in a shallow trench, is enhanced. Nevertheless, owing to the general depth at which groundwater is present, research regarding the heat transfer of a ground heat exchanger (GHE) under conditions with groundwater flow has mainly focused on vertical
conjugated and complicated heat and mass transfer occurs in such HEX-absorbers. A variety of geometries of HEX-absorber have been proposed and studied, including horizontal tubes, vertical tubes, plate type and others. Different techniques were employed, as presented in (Table 1) to intensify the heat and mass transfers. Horizontal Tubes
Spiral Coil Heat Exchanger- Experimental Studydirect system between the ground and the system. However, the closed heat exchanger is an indirect type of a system in which the pipes are buried in vertical or horizontal patterns. The condition of the nearby fluid determines the suitability and appropriateness of vertical versus horizontal ground heat
horizontal spiral-coil type GHE. In order to evaluate the thermal performance of the heat exchanger, a spiral-coil type HGHE was installed in a steel box of which the size was 5 m x 1 m x 1 m filled with dry Joomunjin standard sand, and a thermal response test (TRT) was conducted for 30 hours continuously. Besides, a numerical analysis was performed for its verification and a parametric study of the horizontal spiral-coil
Vertical and Horizontal Ground Heat Exchanger Modelingof the tubes, the vertical heat exchanger keeps a much lower mean temperature because the initial ground temperature at the buried tube depth is always higher than that of the vertical GHE. Because of this observation one would assume that the vertical GHE is more efficient than the horizontal.
This design lends itself to very high heat transfer efficiency due to large surface area much higher than a shell and tube heat exchanger taking up similar space. Plate heat exchangers are also much easier to clean and maintain, because theyre designed to be relatively easy to disassemble and inspect. Also, if there is a defect in a plate, you can simply remove two plates and put the unit right back in
