Spiral tube heat exchanger for liquid metal
MetadataShow full item record
The development of a heat transfer conversion system utilizing liquid metals has been the object of the investigations with which I have been associated on my present duty with the General Electric Company, Schenectady, New York. The major problems involved have been the design of the components of the system. One of the major components under development is a heat exchanger for liquid metals. The development of a suitable heat exchanger has been accomplished by contracting with various companies for the independent design and in some cases construction for testing of various types of exchangers. The spiral tube type exchanger which I have chosen to investigate, though probably not original in design, was not included in the types chosen for investigation. As I believe that this type of exchanger shows promise as being suitable for this application, I have chosen to investigate its possibilities. The investigation of this exchanger is the subject of this paper.
