Alfa Laval has released a new four-color six-page brochure on the ViscoLine[TM] line of tubular heat exchangers
for viscous products.
"Shadrinsk" is not a name that comes readily to mind when one thinks about the vehicle industry, but this small Siberian town is now home to the most advanced copper radiator and charge air cooler (CAC)--collectively known as "heat exchangers
"--production facility in the world.
The amount of water that condensed on each heat exchanger
surface during each test was drained through three collection troughs to three separate 23-L vessels.
Germany's mycon GmbH, a sister company of industrial cleaning firm Kipp Umwelttechnik GmbH, has supported the cleaning of shell and tube heat exchangers
during the annual shutdown of a gas producer located in the Gulf region.
In year two, the heat exchanger
would be retrofitted with new Scheuch heat exchanger
components, including bundled, staggered row heat exchanger
tubes and Variable Speed Drive (VSD) controlled axial-flow fans for more effective cooling.
According to the company, the Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchanger
is more efficient and compact than traditional technologies and one can replace up to four shell-and-tube heat exchangers
in this type of application.

Impact of fin density on thermal-hydrualic performance: Fin density (often defined as FPI-Fin Per Inch) is an important parameter which can impact the thermal-hydraulic performance of the heat exchanger
. While a higher fin density is desired to have a larger capacity and to make the heat exchanger
more compact, it adversely impact the performance of the heat exchanger
operating under dehumidifying conditions: i-A higher fin density results in higher pressure drop and due to the limitation of the power consumption by fan, there is a limit to maximum permissible fin density.
The global heat exchanger
market is expected to grow from $12.94 billion in 2016 to $19.14 billion by 2021, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.2 per cent.
