What is Heat Ex-Changers?

What is Heat Ex-changer?
Heat Ex-changer works on the principle of Fluid DynamicsHeat Ex-changer is a device which is used to exchange the heat from one medium of fluid to other medium of fluid. It is widely used in heavy machinery like Hot Water Generator, Air Conditioner, Adiabatic Coolers, Piston Pumps, Roll Oil Coolers, and Coil Condensers etc.

In this figure, there is coil in the medium and water is flowing through medium. In the coil, the hot water steam is moving, so there will be heat transfer from pipe to water, the water which is coming out, it would be hot and steam which is coming out, it would be cold.
Types of Heat Ex-changer:
1.Shell & Tube Heat Ex-changer
Shell & Tube Heat is most common heat ex-changer which is used in the industry. It consist of bunch of tubes supported by baffles. Baffles are important part to support the tubes while assembling. Bunch of tubes assembled inside the shell.

Shell & Tube Type Heat Ex-changers

Working:-
In given above figure, there is bunch of coil inside the shell. In tube, hot water is running and in shell there is cold water. It is counter flow heat exchanger cause the flow of both fluids in different direction. When hot water in tube is moving through cold water phases, it heat energy is transferred to the fluid or vice versa. Whatever the water is coming out, it would be hot.
2.Plate Type Heat Ex-changer
It consists of corrugated and thin metal plates, with small space between them. The metal plates having grooves. It has larger surface area, to travel heat .All plates are connected to rubber gaskets. The principle of this type of heat exchanger is thermal exchange in the properties of fluid.

4 MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF AIR PREHEATER IN BOILER

4 MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF AIR PREHEATER IN BOILER:
1.Increased thermal efficiency
2. Short payback period & increased combustion rate
3. In the case of combustion of pulverized coal hot air can be used for drying the coal as well as for burning the coal efficiently
4. All standard fuels and even lower grades of coals can be burnt efficiently with hot air

Thermodyne Boilers is a successful manufacturing the Boiler accessories like Air Preheaters, Economizers, Superheaters etc.

What is Combi Boiler?

combi boiler or combination boiler is the most commonly used boiler in India. Combi Boiler is a unique membrane design water wall type boiler which combines the advantages of both water tube & smoke tube steam boilers. A combination type of steam boiler is the one which has the operational characteristics of both smoke tube and water tube steam boiler respectively. Unlike the packaged type Boilers, here the furnace is external to the boiler shell. During its operation, the combustion takes place in the water wall so the flue gases from here travel through this membrane (as in a Water Tube Boiler) and enter the Boiler shell. Now the flue gases travel in the smoke tubes (as in a Smoke Tube Boiler)
During its course of motion, it transfers heat to the – Water present in the tubes in the Water Wall MembraneWater present in the Boiler shell through tubesThis type of steam boiler offers the high degree of reliability and trouble-free operation. They effectively operate at moderately hig…
