What is Heat exchanger?

A heat exchanger is a system used to transfer heat between two or more fluids. Heat exchangers are used in both cooling and heating processes. The fluids may be separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing or they may be in direct contact. They are widely used in space heating, refrigeration, air conditioning, power stations, chemical plants, petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries, natural-gas processing, and sewage treatment. The classic example of a heat exchanger is found in an internal combustion engine in which a circulating fluid known as engine coolant flows through radiator coils and air flows past the coils, which cools the coolant and heats the incoming air. Another example is the heat sink, which is a passive heat exchanger that transfers the heat generated by an electronic or a mechanical device to a fluid medium, often air or a liquid coolant.

How to Calculate Mass flow rate of hot fluid?

Mass flow rate of hot fluid calculator uses Mass flow rate of hot fluid=(Effectiveness of Heat Exchanger*Smaller value /Specific heat of hot fluid)*(1/((Entry temperature of hot fluid-Exit temperature of cold fluid)/(Entry temperature of hot fluid-Entry temperature of cold fluid))) to calculate the Mass flow rate of hot fluid, The Mass flow rate of hot fluid formula is defined as the amount of hot fluid flowing per unit time in the heat exchanger.

FAQ

What is Mass flow rate of hot fluid?
The Mass flow rate of hot fluid formula is defined as the amount of hot fluid flowing per unit time in the heat exchanger and is represented as mc=(ϵ*Cmin/ch)*(1/((T1-t2)/(T1-t1))) or Mass flow rate of hot fluid=(Effectiveness of Heat Exchanger*Smaller value /Specific heat of hot fluid)*(1/((Entry temperature of hot fluid-Exit temperature of cold fluid)/(Entry temperature of hot fluid-Entry temperature of cold fluid))). The effectiveness of heat exchanger is defined as the ratio of the actual heat transfer to the maximum possible heat transfer, Smaller value of mass flowrate of hot fluid * specific heat of hot fluid and mass flowrate of cold fluid * specific heat of cold fluid, Specific heat of hot fluid is the amount of heat required to change the temperature of a mass unit of a hot fluid by one degree, Entry temperature of hot fluid is the temperature of the hot fluid at entry, Exit temperature of cold fluid is the temperature of the cold fluid at exit and Entry temperature of cold fluid is the temperature of the cold fluid at entry.
