Heat Transfer in Forced Convection
Our company offers best quality Heat Transfer in Forced Convection at
an affordable market price. The apparatus offered by us is utilized for
measuring average surface heat transfer coefficient or the Reynolds
number for a pipe losing heat under forced convection conditions.
Manufactured under strict supervision in accordance with industry set
norms and parameters, this apparatus is appreciated by the clients for
compact design, seamless finishing and longer functional life.
- The apparatus consists of blower unit fitted with the test pipe.
- Nichrome wire heater surrounds the test section. Four Temperature
Sensors are embedded on the test section, two placed in the air stream
at the entrance and exit of the test section to measure the inlet and
outlet air temperature.
- Test pipe is connected to the delivery side of the blower along with the orifice to measure flow of air through the pipe.
- Constant heat flux is given to pipe by an electric heater through a
variac and measured by Digital Voltmeter and Digital Ammeter.
- To determine average surface heat transfer coefficient for a pipe by forced convection.
- Comparison of heat transfer coefficient for different airflow rates and heat flow rates.
- To plot surface temperature distribution along the length of pipe.
