Abstract

For the development of industrial heat pump systems supplying a high-temperature heat source over 130°C, the authors have studied on cooling heat transfer of supercritical pressure fluids flowing in chevron-type plate heat exchangers (PHEs). In this study, to examine the effect of chevron angle on cooling heat transfer of supercritical pressure refrigerants, experiments were conducted for HFC134a and HFO1234ze(E) flowing in the PHEs with the chevron angles from 30° to 65°. In the experiments, cooling heat transfer coefficients were obtained in the wide range of bulk fluid enthalpy from vapor-like high temperature to liquid-like low temperature, changing the pressure in the reduced pressure range from 1.01 to 1.2 at the mass flow rates of 7 and 11 kg/min. Especially for the enthalpy region of the pseudo critical point and its vicinity in which good heat transfer appeared, the effect of chevron angle on heat transfer of supercritical pressure fluids was clarified based on the measurements. Furthermore, the effect of chevron angle was examined for the wide angle range from 0° to 90° with estimating the heat transfer coefficient for the angles 0° and 90° from appropriate correlations. Besides, the present data were compared with some conventional heat transfer correlations.
