Experimental investigation of heat transfer in a spiral-coil tube with pulsating water flow

What is it about?

In this study, in order to increase the heat transfer rate in a spiral-coil tube by an active method, a rotating ball valve was mounted downstream/upstream of the spiral-coil tube and used as a pulse generator. Influence of pulsation on heat transfer in the spiral-coil tube was experimentally investigated.

Why is it important?

Efficiency of spiral-coil heat exchangers will be increased.
