أخي العزيز اليك بعض المعلومات عن fin heat exchanger
أرجوا أن تستفيد منها و تدعو لي و تصلي على حبيب الله و حبيبنا محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم.
A plate-fin heat exchanger is comprised of layers of corrugated sheets separated by flat metal plates, typically aluminium, to create a series of finned chambers. Separate hot and cold fluid streams flow through alternating layers of the heat exchanger and are enclosed at the edges by side bars. Heat is transferred from one stream through the fin interface to the separator plate and through the next set of fins into the adjacent fluid. The fins also serve to increase the structural integrity of the heat exchanger and allow it to withstand high pressures while providing an extended surface area for heat transfer.
A high degree of flexibility is present in plate-fin heat exchanger design as they can operate with any combination of gas, liquid, and two-phase fluids. Heat transfer between multiple process streams is also accommodated with a variety of fin heights and types as well as different entry and exit points available for each stream.
The main four type of fins are: plain
, which refer to simple straight-finned triangular or rectangular designs; herringbone
, where the fins are placed sideways to provide a zig-zag path; and serrated
which refer to cuts and perforations in the fins to augment flow distribution and improve heat transfer.
A disadvantage of plate-fin heat exchangers is that they are prone to fouling
due to their small flow channels. They also cannot be mechanically cleaned and require other cleaning procedures and proper filtration for operation with potentially-fouling streams.
The cost of plate-fin heat exchangers is also generally higher than conventional heat exchangers due to a higher level of detail required
