Designing Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers: Consider Two-Phase Flow

| By G.T.Polley, E.E. Vazquez –Ramirez, and M. Riesco Avila; University of Guanajuato, Mexico

In the chemical process industries (CPI) it is relatively common to use a homogeneous two-phase flow model to predict the pressure drop through the shell-side of horizontal heat exchangers that handle two-phase mixtures. Recent experimental studies reported…
