Peter Droegemueller presenting at Heat Exchanger Fouling and Cleaning X - 2013 on “Increased shear, reduced wall temperatures, better fluid distribution, use of hiTRAN Wire Matrix inserts in systems subject to fouling”
A unique survey about the most common heat exchanger problems, including fouling, corrosion, erosion and poor performance within your heat exchangers.
Most common Heat Exchanger Problems Heat exchangers can have a range of problems which can cause them to perform poorly or stop working all together. Much of the time performance issues within heat exchangers can be fixed with some solutions [...]
Heat exchangers are constantly in use processing various fluids and helping you within your process plant. Heat exchangers continuously have performance issues which can occur for a range of reasons and the performance, or even failure issues, can be down [...]
Cal Gavin works closely with a range of education boards to help create new links with students as well as carrying out various research tasks which might be required for one student to gain the qualification they need to pass [...]
hiTRAN wire matrix elements work by constantly mixing fluids from the tube wall into the main bulk flow and vice versa. hiTRAN disturbs the laminar flow layers, characteristic for these flow Reynolds numbers, resulting in significantly higher heat transfer coefficients [...]
