what is the differance between Horizental and vertical heat exchanger? ..

Answer / totti

main difference b/w horizontal and vertical heat exchanger
is "residence time" fluid which flow in horizontal heat
exchanger gets more residence time as compared to vertical
heat exchanger.

what is the differance between Horizental and vertical heat exchanger? ..

Answer / sandeep singh

construction wise both r same but functionally they differ.vertical is mainly used when less floor area availible.and vertical required higher pumping cost also good for handling heat sensible material as resident time is much lower in comparision to the horizontal one.

Answer / daya gamane

In vertical heat exchanger film-wise condensation occurs while in horizontal heat exchanger drop wise condensation occur

what is the differance between Horizental and vertical heat exchanger? ..

Answer / ossus

1.Thermosyphon type HE is vertical HE and Kettle type HE is horizontal HE.

2.in horizontal position, pressure drop is negligible and in vertical position,pressure drop is significant and high.

3. If viscosity of bottom product of distillation column is very high then vertical position preferred and if low then horizontal position preferred.

4 in vertical position high circulation of fluid of possible and low circulation in horizontal position.

what is the differance between Horizental and vertical heat exchanger? ..

Answer / vishwarup sane

1. As the tubes are smooth, the condensation occurs on the surface of tubes, which makes the film over the surface of tubes leads to increase in thickness, as the thickness increases it's acts as a insulation and lower the effective heat transfer coefficient.
2. In vertical heat exchangers as we go downward the thickness of the film increases resulting lowers the heat transfer coefficient.
3. In horizontal heat exchanger the formation of film on the surface of tubes is there but the not as that much of vertical heat exchanger, so the heat transfer coefficient is higher in horizontal type heat exchanger than vertical type heat exchanger.

what is the differance between Horizental and vertical heat exchanger? ..

Answer / magesh

Both are the same. Only the way it is erected. Normally HXs are placed horizontally. But in case of space constraints they can be erected vertically. In such a case other changes like the head of pump pumping fluid to the vertical HX may change.

Question 76 - Let C% be the fractional crystallinity, Rs = density of sample, Ra = density of amorphous form and Rc = density of crystalline form. In a polymer, these unknowns could be related by the equation C% = (Rc / Rs) (Rs - Ra) / (Rc - Ra). (a) Find the equation of Rc as a function of C%, Rs and Ra. (b) Two samples of a polymer, C and D exist. For sample C, C% = 0.513 when Rs = 2.215 unit. For sample D, C% = 0.742 when Rs = 2.144 unit. Both samples C and D have the same values of Ra and Rc. Find the values of Ra and Rc in 6 decimal places.

MY generator water cooler inlet line height - 11 mtr inlet water line height - 7 mtr water come into the line from overhead tank, O/H tank height - 20 mtr the first tapping in the inlet line is 2" line which down to 4 mtr level plateform., second tapping in inlet water line goes to a pump 6" line installed at 4 mtr level plateform, pump capacity 200m3/hr, head- 30 mtr, hp-40. the outlet of pump of 6" water line connected to a header of 6 mtr long of 6" line, on this header the six tapping are connected, 4 nos. 3" line goes to 11 mtr height water cooler the pressure of the line is 0.15 to 0.25 kg/cm2, 2" and 4" pipe line connected to a cooler at 4 mtrlevel plateform. my question is, at 11 mtr height level the quantity of water and flow is not sufficient for my cooler, the temp. of cooler is rises much more. you are requested to suggest the modification of pipe line/ pump for take more water flow and pressure (desired pressure is 1 kg/cm2)
