CHAPTER

Heat-Transfer Equipment—Design and Costs
Excerpted from Chapter 14 "Heat-Transfer Equipment - Design and Costs"
Ashell-and-tube exchanger with one shell and one tube pass is being used as a cooler. The coolingmedium is water with a
ow rate of 11 kg/s on the shell side of the exchanger. With an inside diam-eter of 0.584 m, the shell is packed with a total of 384 tubes in a staggered (triangular) array. The out-side diameter of the tubes is 0.019 m with a clearance between tubes of 0.00635 m. Segmental baf
eswith a 25 percent baf
e cut are used on the shell side, and the baf
e spacing is set at 0.1524 m. Thelength of the exchanger is 3.66 m. (Assume a split backing ring,
oating heat exchanger.)The average temperature of the water is 30
C, and the average temperature of the tube walls onthe water side is 40
C. Under these conditions, estimate the heat-transfer coef
cient for the water andthe pressure drop on the shell side, using the Kern, Bell-Delaware, and Wills and Johnston methods.

rst step in this method is to calculate the ideal cross-
ow heat-transfer coef
cient. Calculate
