Vertical and Horizontal Condenser
Shell & Tube type
condensers are widely used in various industries. The present set-up
offers us a comparative study of Vertical & Horizontal condenser,
which can be operated simultaneously. Condensers are fabricated
Stainless steel shell, inside which copper tubes are fitted. Cold fluid
enters from one end of the tubes and come out of the other. Hot fluid
that is steam is admitted at the one end of shell passes over the
cold-water tubes. Valves are provided to control the flow rates of cold
Flow rate of cold water is measured by
using Rotameter. Shell is fitted with steam traps from where condensate
is collected in measuring cylinder. Temperature of inlet and outlet of
both hot & cold fluids are measured by temperature sensors
- To determine the overall Heat Transfer Co-efficient experimentally
and compare it with the value obtained from standard correlation.
- To make a comparative study of Vertical & Horizontal Condenser
- Water supply 20 lit/min (approx.) and drain.
- Electricity Supply: 1Phase, 220 V AC, 4 kW.
- Floor area of 1.5m x 1m
