Question 1

A new heat exchanger is inducted in a power plant with an overall heat transfer coefficient 5000 W/m2-K. After continuous run of 2 years, overall heat transfer coefficient reduces to 2000 W/m2-K due to various factors like chemical deposition, scale and sludge formation. Then what will be fouling factor under this condition?

Question 2

In a heat exchanger, the hot liquid enters with a temperature of 180 °C and leaves at 160°C. The cooling fluid enters at 30 °C and leaves at 110 °C. The capacity ratio of the heat exchanger is

Question 3

In the counter flow heat exchange, for the hot fluid the specific heat is 3 kJ/kg K, mass flow rate is 6 kg/s, inlet temperature is 150 °C and outlet temperature is 100 °C. For the cold fluid, the  specific heat is 3 kJ/kg K, mass flow rate is 8 kg/s, inlet temperature is 20 °C . Neglecting the heat transfer to surrounding, the outlet temperature of the cold fluid in °C is ________.

Question 4

In a counter-flow heat exchanger, the cold fluid enters at 20°Cand leaves at 40°C. The hot fluid enters at 140°C and leaves at 120°C. What is the heat transferred per unit area per unit overall heat transfer coefficient?

Question 5

After expansion from a gas turbine, the hot exhaust gases are used to heat the compressed from a compressor with the help of a counter flow compact heat exchanger of 0.6 effectiveness. The number of transfer units of the heat exchanger is _________.

Question 6

In a counterflow heat exchanger the hot fluid is cooled from 140° to 110°C by a cold fluid which get heated from 70°C to 100°C . The overall heat transfer coefficient is 250 W/m2 – K and heat transfer area is 2 m2. If both the fluids have identical mass flow rate specific heat product. Then the heat transfer rate is (in kW) __________?

Question 7

For the same inlet and outlet temperatures of hot and cold fluids, the Log Mean Temperature Difference (LMTD) is

Question 8

For the parallel flow heat exchange the effectiveness is 0.4 and capacity ratio is unity, then NTU is___.

Question 9

In a shell and tube heat exchanger, baffles are provided on the shell side to ________.

Question 10

An adiabatic heat exchanger is used to heat cold water at 15°C entering at the rate of 10 kg/sec by hot air at 90°C entering at the rate of 10 kg/sec. If the exit temperature of hot air is 20°C . Then find the exit temperature of cold water ____________. Cp for air = 1.008 KJ/Kg, Cp for water = 4.18 KJ/Kg.
