Shell & Tube Exchanger - Feed Back Simulation 3221

Model Description

TSC Sim 3221 Shell And Tube Heat Exchanger – Feed Back Simulation shows the typical arrangement found for a counter current fuel gas heat exchanger.

The heat exchanger is used to heat cold fuel gas from a choice of 2 different supplies with variable temperatures, by transferring heat from a hot oil supply.

The model shows a typical feed-back control system.

The heat exchangers heat transfer co-efficient and the heat exchange area of the heat exchanger can be altered.

The feed supply of fuel gas can be varied using hand valves.

The flow of hot oil is controlled by the outlet temperature via a feed-back control loop.

Learning Areas
