Abstract

The goals of this project were to design a plate heat exchanger apparatus and evaluate the potential of replacing the current double pipe heat exchanger by this newly designed plate heat exchanger for the Unit Operation Laboratory Course. Raw data was collected during experiments. The goals for this project were achieved, as the team accomplished all objectives for the Heat Exchanger Unit Operation Experiment. The results obtained from the plate heat exchanger apparatus were consistent with the governing theory compared to the results from the double pipe heat exchanger apparatus.
