You will prepare and submit a term paper on Heat Transfer from Stream to Water. Your paper should be a minimum of 1500 words in length. It also contains a stirrer that ensures the tank’s temperature is fixed. The experiment’s main source of heat is steam condensation that enters the heat exchanger shell side through the stream inlet. A water drain valve is used to drain water out of the tank and hence, turning the tank cold. One of the essential sections of this experiment is a thermocouple that is linked to a computer via an analog/digital converter. The purpose of the thermocouple is to measure the temperature of water getting in and out of the heat exchanger. The thermocouple also measures the stream in our condensate. Additionally, an orifice meter is employed to weigh the water flow rate when the heat exchanger is used. A computer installed with the appropriate programs is also important to provide the time against temperature data, which will assist the student to analyze the obtained results. Figure 1, 2, and 3 shows the Heated Tank assembly and connection, with a figure showing the entire Heated Tank whose capacity is roughly 30 gallons and should be about 31 inches deep.
The foremost section of the experiment is the heat exchanger. Water is supplied in the shell region as the steam is supplied in the tube region of the heat exchanger. A computer, as previously employed in the initial stage of the experiment initial, is also employed in the second stage of the experiment. A rotameter is regarded as a major component of the experiment because it measures the water flow rate in the corning cap heat exchanger. Figures 4 and 5 show the experiment’s corning heat exchanger assembly and connection. . .
There are a number of important equations, which are used to obtain the overall heat transfer coefficient. The equations used to calculate experimentally and predicted values for the heat transfer coefficient. For instance, Eq1, as outlined below in the tank experiment equation for perfect mixing. .  .
