Evaluation of a Plate Heat Exchanger for Use in the Unit Operations Laboratory at Worcester Polytechnic Institute Public

This project sought to evaluate the use of a new plate heat exchanger to replace the current heat transfer experiment in a unit operations laboratory course. Experimental data collected on a new exchanger showed that it would be a viable addition to the course. A 3D computer model of the exchanger was built and simulation results showed the same trends as the experiment. The simulations will allow students to better visualize flow and heat transfer within the exchanger.
