Increasing Heat Exchanger Performance

Nikhanj Ratan

Engineers are continually being asked to improve processes and increase efficiency. These requests may arise as a result of the need to increase process throughput, increase profitability, or accommodate capital limitations. Processes that use heat transfer equipment must frequently be improved for these reasons. This paper provides some methods for increasing shell-and-tube exchanger performance. The methods consider whether the exchanger is performing correctly, to begin with, excess pressure drop capacity in existing exchangers, the re-evaluation of fouling factors and their effect on exchanger calculations, and the use of augmented surfaces and enhanced heat transfer. Three examples are provided to show how commercial process simulation programs and shell-and-tube exchanger rating programs may be used to evaluate these exchanger performance issues. The last example shows how novel heat transfer enhancement can be evaluated using basic shell-and-tube exchanger rating calculations along with vendor-supplied enhancement factors.
