A critical review of heat transfer enhancement techniques for use in marine condensers
Nunn, Robert H.
MetadataShow full item record
A variety of heat transfer enhancement techniques are reviewed and evaluated for use in marine condensers. This review includes tube-side enhancement, as well as shell-side enhancement techniques. At present, the most promising technique to enhance heat transfer on the tube side is with one of the commercially available, mildly indented, corrugated tubes. With this type of tube, the shell-side heat transfer enhancement is not as large and is uncertain due to the, as yet determined, complex effects of vapor shear and condensate inundation. Large bundle tests with enhanced tubing are therefore required before the details of tube-to-tube interaction will be fully understood. (Author)
