  1. 1. Drop Break-up in High-Pressure Homogenisers

    Author : Fredrik Innings; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik; plasma; fluiddynamik; Gaser; plasmas; fluid dynamics; POD; Gases; PIV; Eddy; Flow; Jet; Milk; Break-up; Emulsion; Drop; Homogeniser;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this project was to investigate the drop break-up process in milk homogenisers. This was done by measurements and calculations of the flow fields in the gap region and by visualisation of drops being broken up. To make visualisation and measurements possible, two scale models of a homogeniser gap were developed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Flow Boiling Heat Transfer and Pressure Drop. Experiments and Model Development for Complex Geometries

    Author : Sven Wellsandt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : pressure drop; zeotropic mixtures; heat transfer; herringbone microfin; dimple plate; modelling; evaporation; flow boiling; experiments;

    Abstract : Two very different evaporator geometries, a dimple plate and a herringbone microfin tube, have been studied. Heat transfer and pressure drop for both pure refrigerants and refrigerant mixtures have been determined experimentally. READ MORE

  3. 3. Experimental Heat Transfer, pressure drop, and Flow Visualization of R-134a in Vertical Mini/Micro Tubes

    Author : Wahib Owhaib; Björn Palm; Tassos Karayiannis; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Minichannel; microchannel; heat transfer; pressure drop; single-phase; two-phase; flow boiling; flow visualization; dry out; bubble behavior; flow pattern.; Mechanical energy engineering; Mekanisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : For the application of minichannel heat exchangers, it is necessary to have accurate design tools for predicting heat transfer and pressure drop. Until recently, this type of heat exchangers was not well studied, and in the scientific literature there were large discrepancies between results reported by different investigators. READ MORE

  4. 4. Flow boiling heat transfer, pressure drop and dryout characteristics of low GWP refrigerants in a vertical mini-channel

    Author : Zahid Anwar; Björn Palm; Rahmatollah Khodabandeh; Maria Fernandino; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mini micro-channels; R1234yf; R152a; R600a; R134a; Boiling heat transfer; Pressure drop; Dryout; Correlation;

    Abstract : Two-phase heat transfer in mini/micro-channels is capable of meeting the high cooling demands of modern high heat flux applications. The phase change process ensures better temperature uniformity and control for local hot spots. Furthermore, these compact channels could be helpful in reducing the required charge and material inventories. READ MORE

  5. 5. Measurements and Modelling of Convective Vaporization for Refrigerants in a Horizontal Tube

    Author : Peter Melin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : n-butane; HFC134a; pressure drop; propane; HFC143a; horizontal flow boiling; in-tube vaporization; HFC125; HFC32; experimental study; HCFC142b; HCFC22; non-azeotropic mixtures; CFC12; modelling; mixture effects;

    Abstract : An evaporator facility has been constructed to measure local values of heat transfer and pressure drop. The evaporator resembles a normal working evaporator tube in a direct-expansion evaporator applicable to large heat pump/refrigeration cycles, typically over 500 kW. The evaporator is brine-heated and uses an expansion valve to control the inlet. READ MORE
