Abstract:Experimental and theoretical investigations of water-side fouling have been performed inside four corrugated plate heat exchangers. They have different geometric parameters, such as plate height, plate spacing, and plate angle. Heat transfer coefficients and friction factors have been obtained in clean tests. Composite fouling experiments have also been performed. The tests are primarily focused on the effects of average velocity. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) was used to investigate the microscopic struc… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
