How to Calculate Tube Side Pressure Drop in Heat Exchanger for Laminar Flow?
Tube Side Pressure Drop in Heat Exchanger for Laminar Flow calculator uses Tube Side Pressure Drop = Number of Tube-Side Passes*(8*Friction Factor*(Length of Tube/Pipe Inner Diameter)*(Fluid Viscosity at Bulk Temperature/Fluid Viscosity at Wall Temperature)^-0.25+2.5)*(Fluid Density/2)*(Fluid Velocity^2) to calculate the Tube Side Pressure Drop, The Tube Side Pressure Drop in Heat Exchanger for Laminar Flow formula is defined as difference between inlet pressure and the outlet pressure of the fluid that is allocated on tube side of shell and tube heat exchanger. For Laminar flow the viscosity Correction Exponent becomes (-0.25). Tube Side Pressure Drop is denoted by ΔP_{Tube Side} symbol.
How to calculate Tube Side Pressure Drop in Heat Exchanger for Laminar Flow using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Tube Side Pressure Drop in Heat Exchanger for Laminar Flow, enter Number of Tube-Side Passes (N_{Tube Pass}), Friction Factor (J_{f}), Length of Tube (L_{Tube}), Pipe Inner Diameter (D_{inner}), Fluid Viscosity at Bulk Temperature (μ_{fluid}), Fluid Viscosity at Wall Temperature (μ_{Wall}), Fluid Density (ρ_{fluid}) & Fluid Velocity (V_{f}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Tube Side Pressure Drop in Heat Exchanger for Laminar Flow calculation can be explained with given input values -> 186871.6 = 4*(8*0.004*(4.5/0.0115)*(1.005/1.006)^-0.25+2.5)*(995/2)*(2.5^2).
