How to Calculate Heat Transfer Coefficient for Plate Heat Exchanger?
Heat Transfer Coefficient for Plate Heat Exchanger calculator uses Plate Film Coefficient = 0.26*(Thermal Conductivity in Heat Exchanger/Equivalent Diameter in Heat Exchanger)*(Reynold Number for Fluid^0.65)*(Prandlt Number for Fluid^0.4)*(Fluid Viscosity at Average Temperature/Fluid Viscosity at Tube Wall Temperature)^0.14 to calculate the Plate Film Coefficient, The Heat Transfer Coefficient for Plate Heat Exchanger formula is defined for Plate type heat exchanger. Heat transfer coefficient determines the ease of heat transfer in a heat exchanger. Plate Film Coefficient is denoted by h_{p} symbol.
How to calculate Heat Transfer Coefficient for Plate Heat Exchanger using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Heat Transfer Coefficient for Plate Heat Exchanger, enter Thermal Conductivity in Heat Exchanger (k_{f}), Equivalent Diameter in Heat Exchanger (d_{e}), Reynold Number for Fluid (Re), Prandlt Number for Fluid (Pr), Fluid Viscosity at Average Temperature (μ) & Fluid Viscosity at Tube Wall Temperature (μ_{W}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Heat Transfer Coefficient for Plate Heat Exchanger calculation can be explained with given input values -> 5885.352 = 0.26*(3.4/0.0215)*(1000^0.65)*(3.27^0.4)*(1.005/1.006)^0.14.
