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 Overall heat transfer coefficient?

Overall heat transfer coefficient calculator uses Overall heat transfer coefficient=Heat exchanged/(Correction factor*Area*Logarithmic mean temperature difference) to calculate the Overall heat transfer coefficient, The Overall heat transfer coefficient formula is defined as the convective heat transfer between a fluid medium (a fluid) and the surface (wall) flowed over by the fluid. Overall heat transfer coefficient and is denoted by U symbol.

How to calculate Overall heat transfer coefficient using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Overall heat transfer coefficient, enter Heat exchanged (Q), Correction factor (F), Area (A) and Logarithmic mean temperature difference (ΔTm) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Overall heat transfer coefficient calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.066667 = 50/(0.5*50*30).

FAQ

What is Overall heat transfer coefficient?
The Overall heat transfer coefficient formula is defined as the convective heat transfer between a fluid medium (a fluid) and the surface (wall) flowed over by the fluid and is represented as U=Q/(F*A*ΔTm) or Overall heat transfer coefficient=Heat exchanged/(Correction factor*Area*Logarithmic mean temperature difference). Heat exchanged is the amount of heat transferred between two objects, Correction factor is that is multiplied with the result of an equation to correct for a known amount of systematic error, The area is the amount of two-dimensional space taken up by an object and Logarithmic mean temperature difference is the log of mean of the temperature values.
How to calculate Overall heat transfer coefficient?
