HEAT EXCHANGER DESIGN IN HYSYSENVIRONMENT
member I would like to share my experience of heat exchangerdesign in hysys. Being a member of
you must have good hysys skillfor carry out your future research and the lab assignment given to you. Firstof all start using hysys with the manual as it will make you familiar with thebasic terminology and the operations you can carry out in hysys. Then afterquickly following the basic, start doing example provided in the manual andtries to do as much as you can to gain enough confidence before delving intothe details of the assignments.Now you have basic idea about hysys and you are particularly concernsabout the design of heat exchanger so before designing you usually havesome idea about heat exchanger from thermodynamic point of view like:
How much heat you can transfer from hot stream to cold streamcalculated by first law of thermodynamic (energy can neither becreated nor destroyed it just transform).
Also you should know the direction of heat transfer as stated bysecond law of thermodynamics heat can flow only from higher temp tolower temp.
Maximum allowable pressure drop from one or both stream (dependson specific application) like that.
