Abstract: A heat exchanger is a device that exchanges the heat between two or more flowing fluids. In simper words one flowing fluid is at the lower temperature, called the cold fluid, and the other fluid is at the higher temperature, called the hot fluid, from which heat has to be extracted. The fluid with the lower temperature flows inside the geometry of the heat exchanger to extract heat from the hot fluid flowing with the higher temperature. Different types of turbulators with different pitch ratio were used to increase heat transfer rate inside the heat exchanger. Turbulators were used to increase turbulence and contact time which helps in increasing heat transfer rate. Here in this work it calculated the effect of different diameter circular helical turbulator to increase heat transfer, for analyzing the effect of different diameter of circular turbulator here it considered three different diameters that are 0.5, 1 and 2 mm. In this work it also calculates the effect of different shape of helical turbulator, for analyzing the effect of different shapes of helical turbulator here it considered three different shapes of turbulator with same cross sectional area that is circular, Square and rectangular shape turbulator. Through analysis it is found that heat exchanger with rectangular helical turbulator shows maximum value of heat transfer as compared to other.
Keywords: heat exchanger, Turbulator shape, heat transfer, temperature distribution and Nusselt number
