Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers Calculations
The basic design of Shell and Tube calculation for any heat exchanger is the determination of heat transfer area. Overall the shell and tube practice it is more common to assume that fluid properties can be treated as constant at the bulk average values, and approximate the design equations.The Shell and tube Heat Exchanger is a acceptable from the thermal point of view and one may go on to pressure drop calculation.In the calculation of Pressure drop , the pressure drop of each stream must be less than ,but not greatly less than , and the allowable values. If the calculated pressure drop is much less than that allowed, it will probably prove possible to reduce the size of the Heat Systems.The calulation of Shell and Tube Heat systems having calculated methods of tentative sizing , thermal rating, heat transfer co-efficient inside a tube. Shell and Tube Design is a software tool that is made to demonstrate the chemical design & rating calculations of Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers.Unlike other tools, ensures that the calculations are performed step by step to help in understanding the design calculations.
