Multi Objective Optimization of Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger – A Case Study

In this paper existing STHE will studied in detail and from which size of the shell and input and output temperature of fluids held constant as input parameter to size the modified STHE. Unknown parameters (decision variables) can be either dependent or independent variables. Then the whole STHE correlations are defined in terms of independent variables. For different independent variable variations, values of heat transfer rate and cost of STHE are different. In a case of optimization using Microsoft Excel, more influential independent variables on values of heat transfer rate and cost will considered in a specified ranges to decrease analysis complexity. But in MATLAB programing all independent variables will be considered. Finally, for each methods one best value will be selected in order to have satisfactory heat transfer rate and total cost. Of which, by compression one solution will take as a final modified STHE.

For comparison, GAs are also applied for the same case study with 1080 combinations of its parameters. For this optimal design problem, it is found that DE, an exceptionally simple evolution strategy, is significantly faster compared to GA and yields the global optimum for a wide range of the key parameters. This paper demonstrates the first successful application of DE for the optimal design of shell-and-tube HEs. A generalized procedure has been developed to run the DE algorithm coupled with a function that uses Bell’s method of HED, to find the global minimum HE area. For the case study taken up, application of all the 10 different working strategies of DE are explored. The performance of DE and GA is compared. From this study we conclude that the population-based algorithms such as GAs and DE provide significant improvement in the optimal designs, by achieving the global optimum, compared to the traditional designs. For the given optimal shell-and-tube HED problem the best population size, using both DE and GA, is about seven times the number of design variables. From ‘more likeliness’ as well as ‘speed’ point of view, DE/best/1/. . . strategy is found to be the best out of the presently available 10 strategies of DE.DE, a simple evolution strategy, is significantly faster compared to GA and it achieves the global minimum over a wide range of its key parameters—indicating the ‘likeliness’ of achieving the true global optimum.DE proves to be a potential source for accurate and faster optimization.

Failure Analysis of Tube and Shell Heat Exchanger

Failure Analysis of Tube and Shell Heat Exchanger

Abstract: This paper will present an over view on the different types failures occurring in heat exchangers and the maintenance procedure adopted for smooth operation of the heat exchanger. Heat exchanger is present as a static equipment at Hindustan Organic Chemicals Limited. The operation of this heat exchanger involves the production of Phenol from TAR COLUMN. The case study deals with the failure analysis of heat exchanger in which its design is checked. In HOCL, a shell and tube heat exchanger is used in the production line of phenol. Hot oil at 328°C and 10.5 kg/cm2 is passing through the exchanger tubes. SS316 material is used in the tubes. 120 tubes at the top of the heat exchanger fails regularly and hence the plant have to be closed down for at least 2 days on each failure. The failure causes loss of hot oil (therminol) which cost approximately Rs 850 per litre. About 1cm drop in oil level costs about 5 lakhs. In order to overcome this problem, the design of this heat exchanger is analysed for finding out the reason behind this failure.

Optimization of Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger by Baffle Inclination & Baffle Cut

Optimization of Shell & Tube Heat Exchanger by Baffle Inclination & Baffle Cut

Heat exchangers are devices that facilitate the exchange of heat between two fluids that are at different temperatures while keeping them from mixing with each other. This device used to transfer heat between two or more fluids that are at different temperatures and which in most of the cases they are separated by a solid wall. Heat exchangers are used in power plants, nuclear reactors, refrigeration and air conditioning systems, automotive industries, heat recovery systems, chemical processing, and food industries. Different heat exchangers are named according to their applications. For example, heat exchangers being used to condense are known as condensers, similarly heat exchangers for boiling purposes are called boilers [1]. Shell and tube heat exchangers (STHXs) have been most widely used equipment in the industrial fields including: power plant, petroleum refining, steam generation etc. STHXs provide relatively large ratios of heat transfer area to volume and weight and can be easily cleaned [2].Performance and efficiency of heat exchangers are measured through the amount of heat transferred using least area of heat transfer and pressure drop. Baffle Angle, Baffle Cut, Baffle Spacing, Tube Diameter and Number of Tubes These are the main factors affecting heat transfer of Heat exchanger. The optimization of shell-and-tube heat exchangers requires a good knowledge of the local and average shell-side heat transfer coefficients which is complicated by a shell diameter, baffle cut, baffle spacing, tube diameter, pitch, arrangement. These leakages reduce the velocity in the tube bundle and, hence, the heat transfer coefficient and pressure drop [3].

Optimization Of Tubesheet Thickness Of Shell And Tube Heat Exchanger

Optimization Of Tubesheet Thickness Of Shell And Tube Heat Exchanger

A heat exchanger is a device built for efficient heat transfer from one medium to another. Many a times some issues occurred in the heat exchanger. Out of which this paper is concerned with the thermo-mechanical issue that is thermal expansion of tubesheet due to high temperature. It is necessary to make a optimize design which is safe, economical and accurate. Due to high temperature and high pressure fluids tubesheet of heat exchanger expands which results expansion of shell which causes deformation of heat exchanger. To avoid this deformation, analysis of effect of temperature variation and associated stresses in the tubesheet is necessary. Objective of this paper is to analyse the temperature variation at the junction of shell to tubesheet junction in shell and tube heat exchanger and optimization of tubesheet thickness.

Design Optimization of Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger by Vibration Analysis

Design Optimization of Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger by Vibration Analysis

In this paper a simplified approach to optimize the design of Shell Tube Heat Exchanger [STHE] by flow induced vibration analysis [FVA] is presented. The vibration analysis of STHE helps in achieving optimiza- tion in design by prevention of tube failure caused due to flow induced vibration. The main reason for tube failure due to flow induced vibration is increased size of STHE. It is found that in case of increased size of STHE, the surface area and number of tubes increases, thus the understanding and analysis of vibration be- comes a very difficult task. Again it is found that flow induced vibration analysis is considered as an integral part of mechanical & thermal design of STHE. The detailed design, fabrication, testing and analysis work was carried out at Alfa Laval (India), Ltd., Pune-10.

HEAT TRANSFER OPTIMIZATION OF SHELL AND TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER THROUGH CFD ANALYSIS

HEAT TRANSFER OPTIMIZATION OF SHELL AND TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER THROUGH CFD ANALYSIS

Our study aims at studying simple un-baffled heat exchanger, which is more similar to the double pipe heat exchangers. Almost no study is found for an un-baffled shell and tube heat exchanger. Thus general correlations of heat transfer and pressure drop for straight pipes can be useful to get an idea of the design. Generally there has been lot of work done on heat transfer [7] and pressure drop [8] in heat exchangers. Pressure drop in a heat exchanger can be divided in three parts. Mainly it occurs due to fanning friction along the pipe. In addition to this it also occurs due to geometrical changes in the flow i.e. contraction and expansion at inlet and outlet of heat exchanger [9]. Handbook of hydraulic resistance pro- vides the correlations for the pressure losses in these three regions separately by introducing the pressure loss coefficients.

A SIMPLIFIED PREDICTIVE CONTROL FOR A SHELL AND TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER

A SIMPLIFIED PREDICTIVE CONTROL FOR A SHELL AND TUBE HEAT EXCHANGER

control algorithm which is delivered by J.Richalet etc. in 1978, and has advanced a lot over the years [8]. The model of DMC control algorithm is based on step response prediction model. Traditional autocorrecting of single step prediction is extended to multiple step prediction. Based on the practical feedback information, repeating optimization of the algorithm restrains effectively the algorithm sensitive to parameter change of the model. Based on combining the features of prediction function in DMC with feedback structure of PID, a dynamic matrix control with PID structure (PID-DMC) is derived. Using DMC algorithm it requires the inversion computation of higher dimensional matrix and the computation required for the PID-DMC algorithm complicated than that in traditional DMC algorithm. Traditional feedback control algorithm-PID control is simple in principle, easy to understand and implement in engineering, which is still widely used for controlling temperature of heat exchanger. Many advanced control algorithm is based on PID control algorithm. Heat exchanger process is highly nonlinear and time varying function. Using conventional PID control for heat exchanger, it cannot achieve ideal control effect because of its nonlinear and time varying behavior. In order to solve these problems, the predictive PID controller has derived. Using simplified DMC-PID algorithm for controlling temperature of shell and tube heat exchanger. The steady state and transient response of shell and tube heat exchanger using simplified DMC-PID control is simulated and compared with Conventional DMC-PID algorithms. It is found that the simplified DMC-PID performs well than the conventional PID, DMC-PID and results are tabulated.

Optimization of Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger for Tube Arrangements

Optimization of Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger for Tube Arrangements

The main purpose of heat exchanger is the transfer of heat from one fluid to another. Among all type of heat exchanger, shell and tube heat exchanger most commonly used. . The performances of shell and tube heat exchanger mainly depend on baffle geometry and tube geometry. Also fouling consideration and the fluids used in shell and tube have large effect on heat exchanger performance. The effect of fouling is considered in heat exchanger design by including shell side tube side fouling resistance. The tube side fluid should be corrosive and have high fouling resistance. Baffle is one of the major parts of shell tube heat exchanger. Baffles are designed to direct shell side fluid across the tube bundle efficiently as possible. The most common type of baffle is the single segmental baffle which changes the direction of shell fluid to archive cross flow. Now a day’s helical baffles and flower baffles are used in shell and tube heat exchanger instead of segmental baffles and got better results. There were lots of experiments conducted in baffle plate in order to increase heat exchanger performance. M.M. Elias[1] experimentally investigated the effect of different nano particle shape on the overall heat transfer coefficient and shell and tube heat exchanger with different baffle angle (0, 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50). Boehmite alumina used as nano particle. In all shapes cylindrical nano particle show grater over all heat transfer coefficient .20° baffle angle show better heat transfer than other angles Arjun K.S [2 ] investigated the performance of one shell and tube heat exchanger model with helical angle vary from 0 to 40° .They got an effective heat transfer hike by the impact of helical angle and helix baffle inclination angle 20°makes the best performance of shell and tube heat exchanger .Yonghua you [3] solved a numerical model shell and tube heat exchanger with flower baffles for Reynold number ranging from 6813 to 22326.They found that, the mean heat transfer coefficient and convective heat transfer coefficient increase with increase of Reynolds number. Also they found that over all thermal hydraulic behaviour h sm /Δp decreases with increase of Reynolds number. Xiaoming xiao [4] investigated the heat transfer performance of fluid with different prandel number fluid in the shell side of helical baffle side of heat exchanger. The value of ‘pr’ ranges from 5 to 15000 and helical tilt angle from 10° to 50°. High prandel number fluid with small helical angle reveals to be optimum choice. In this study optimization of shell and tube heat exchanger have done for maximum heat transfer. Optimization mainly on for tube arrangement and baffle angle .

Thermal Analysis Of Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger Used In Food Industries

Thermal Analysis Of Scraped Surface Heat Exchanger Used In Food Industries

In a typical SSHE (Fig.), fluid is slowly pumped along the annulus between a stationary heated or cooled outer cylinder and a rotating inner cylinder. Moving blades attached to the inner cylinder scrape the outer cylinder surface periodically to prevent film formation and promote mixing and heat transfer. The blades are often manufactured with holes or gaps to allow mass flow through the scrapers and to reduce the power required for rotation. In comparison with the axial flow, the rotational flow dominates the mixing process. The high shear region close to the tips of the blades and the significant thermal effects due to viscous dissipation imply that it is crucial to understand the local shear and thermal effects in order to predict heat transfer performance.

Design, Analysis and Fabrication of Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger

Tube OD of ¾ and 1‟‟ are very common to design a compact heat exchanger. The most efficient condition for heat transfer is to have the maximum number of tubes in the shell to increase turbulence. The tube thickness should be enough to withstand the internal pressure along with the adequate corrosion allowance. The tube thickness is expressed in terms of BWG (Birmingham Wire Gauge) and true outside diameter (OD). The tube length of 6, 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24 fts are preferably used. Longer tube reduces shell diameter at the expense of higher shell pressure drop. Finned tubes are also used when fluid with low heat transfer coefficient flows in the shell side. Stainless steel, admiralty brass, copper, bronze and alloys of copper-nickel are the commonly used tube materials:

Effectiveness Improvement of Shell and Tube Type Heat Exchanger

Effectiveness Improvement of Shell and Tube Type Heat Exchanger

In this shell and tube type heat exchanger, both the fluids flow in opposite directions. The hot and cold fluids(water) enter at the opposite ends. The temperature difference between the two fluids remains more or less nearly constant. This type of heat exchanger, due to counter flow, gives maximum rate of heat transfer for a given surface area. Hence such heat exchangers are most favored for heating and cooling of fluids.
