Abstract

Heat exchanger is an important device in all thermal systems. It is widely used equipment in numerous industries such as process control, petroleum refining, chemicals industry and etc. Energy and material saving considerations as well as environmental challenges in the industry nowadays have stimulated the demand for high efficiency of heat exchanger. To improve the efficiency of heat exchanger one must think of heat transfer enhancement in heat exchanger. So, this study is carried out with thermal designing and analysis by using SOLIDWORK software. The aim of this study is to investigate the behavior of different type material of heat exchanger i.e. copper, stainless steel and brass in two different models of heat exchanger. The first model of heat exchanger is set to be oil to oil heat exchanger. The second model of heat exchanger is set to be oil to water heat exchanger. Finally the best material in both models of heat exchanger can be determined using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation. Through the simulation results, copper is the most efficiency heat transfer compared to stainless steel and brass in heat exchanger design. For the cooling agent, this study shows that water is more efficient cooling agent compared to the oil because water is able to absorb heat faster than oil.
