Heat exchangers are used for variety of purposes within industrial environments. This includes hot water storage tanks, thermal energy storage, and waste heat boilers.
Situations Where Heat Exchanges Are Used
These devices are used to transfer heat in the following situations at different temperatures and when in thermal contact:
- Between 2 or more fluids
- Between solid surfaces and fluids
- Between solid particulates and fluids
The Different Types of Heat Exchangers
Heat exchangers are available in 3 different types
- Parallel-flow or counterflow configuration
- Cross-flow configuration
- Shell-and-tube configuration
With parallel-flow heat exchangers, for example, the tube side fluid and the shell side’s both flow in
In milling operations, a two-compartment barrel mill machine is used for dry milling low-to-medium hard construction materials. However, the milling process can often result in a material build up because of the heat that’s generated during operations. Additionally, vibratory screeners can be blinded by the hardening of mill parts.
This can be a problem as screen blinding and material build up can put a stopper on a milling operation’s productivity. Fortunately, there’s an array of cooling methods a milling operator can use in order to prevent these problems from happening.
- Cool the air stream with liquid nitrogen
Cooling the air stream using liquid nitrogen is the traditional cooling method when using a mechanical grinding milling system. The liquid nitrogen can help to pre
