Keywords:Heat Transfer, Improvement the Performance, Medium Integral Finned Tubes, Cross Flow Heat Exchangers, Reynolds Number, Heat Transfer Coefficient
The aim of this study to improve the performance of heat exchanger by using the medium integral fins on the cross flow heat exchanger practically, so, two the heat exchangers from copper were manufactures with eight passes for comparison under different boundary conditions. The water flow rate flow inner the tubes with (2, 3, 4, 5, 6) L/min with inlet temperatures (50, 60, 70) oC, as for the air flow rate were passed outer the tubes by speeds (1, 1.7, 2.3) m/sec. The results show that the medium integral finned tube gives more improvement the heat transfer than the smooth tube about 203.97% and 205.1% was enhancement factor. Motivation: The aim is improvement the heat transfer coefficient for cross flow heat exchanger by using medium integral finned tube. Study the effect of various water stream rate, air speed and inlet water temperature on heat transfer coefficient for them, Finding the cases which enhanced heat transfer for various ranges of air and water as well as inlet temperatures and the speed at the entrance. Develop the empirical correlations for (Nua) of smooth and medium integral finned tubes as function of (Pra) and (Rea).
