Compact Heat Exchangers for Energy Transfer Intensification: Low-Grade Heat and Fouling Mitigation provides theoretical and experimental background on heat transfer intensification in modern heat exchangers. Emphasizing applications in complex heat recovery systems for the process industries, this book:Covers various issues related to low-grade heat, including waste heat from industry and buildings, storage and transport of thermal energy, and heat transfer equipment requirementsExplains the basic principles, terminology, and heat transfer aspects of compactness, as well as the concept of intensified heat area targets at process integrationPays special attention to the mitigation of fouling in heat exchangers and their systems, describing fouling deposition and threshold fouling mechanismsDelivers a thoughtful analysis of the economics of implementation, considering energy-capital trade-off, capital cost estimation, and energy pricesPresents illustrative case studies of specific applications in food and chemical production plants
Compact Heat Exchangers for Energy Transfer Intensification: Low-Grade Heat and Fouling Mitigation not only highlights key developments in compact heat exchangers, but also instills a practical knowledge of the latest process integration and heat transfer enhancement methodologies.
