Compact Heat Exchangers for Energy Transfer Intensification : Low Grade Heat and Fouling Mitigation
about this item
Compact Heat Exchangers for Energy Transfer Intensification: Low-Grade Heat and Fouling Mitigationprovides theoretical and experimental background on heat transfer intensification in modern heat exchangers. Emphasizing applications in complex heat recovery systems for the process industries, this book:
- Covers various issues related to low-grade heat, including waste heat from industry and buildings, storage and transport of thermal energy, and heat transfer equipment requirements
- Explains the basic principles, terminology, and heat transfer aspects of compactness, as well as the concept of intensified heat area targets at process integration
- Pays special attention to the mitigation of fouling in heat exchangers and their systems, describing fouling deposition and threshold fouling mechanisms
- Delivers a thoughtful analysis of the economics of implementation, considering energy–capital trade-off, capital cost estimation, and energy prices
- Presents illustrative case studies of specific applications in food and chemical production plants
Compact Heat Exchangers for Energy Transfer Intensification: Low-Grade Heat and Fouling Mitigationnot only highlights key developments in compact heat exchangers, but also instills a practical knowledge of the latest process integration and heat transfer enhancement methodologies.
