Baffles And Tube Bundles

Segment Baffle Heat Exchanger

The tube bundle is the most important part of a tubular heat exchanger. The tubes generally constitute the most expensive component of the exchanger and are the one most likely to corrode. Tube sheets, baffles, or support plates, tie rods, and usually spacers complete the bundle. Minimum baffle spacing is generally one-fifth of the shell diameter and not less than 50.8 mm 2 in . Maximum baffle spacing is limited by the requirement to provide adequate support for the tubes. The maximum...

For a Carnot cycle where A Q TA s , the COP for the refrigeration application becomes note than T is absolute temperature K The COP in real refrigeration cycles is always less than for the ideal Carnot cycle and there is constant effort to achieve this ideal value. Basic Refrigeration Methods Three basic methods of refrigeration mentioned above use similar processes for obtaining refrigeration effect evaporation in the evaporator, condensation in the condenser where heat is rejected to the...
