How to Calculate Fouling Factor?
Fouling Factor calculator uses Fouling Factor = (1/Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient after Fouling)-(1/Overall Heat Transfer Coefficient) to calculate the Fouling Factor, The Fouling Factor formula is defined as the difference of the reciprocal of overall HT coefficient after fouling and before fouling. Fouling Factor is denoted by R_{f} symbol.
